Ruiz can beat Wilder, but Deontay vs. Joshua is way better – Hearn


In a potential fight between former heavyweight world champions Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) and Andy Ruiz (35-2, 22 KOs), the latter has every chance of success. Promoter Eddie Hearn thinks so, which he said

“I think Ruiz is someone who can beat Wilder. Truth. I think he has enough IQ to do it. Well, yes, we all know what kind of blow Deontay has. Wilder is spectacular and dangerous. In general, this is a brilliant fight, and I think that it will take place early next year, ”said the head of Matchroom Boxing.

When the functionary was asked if the trilogy between Anthony Joshua and Ruiz was interesting, he said: “It’s 1-1, the first fight was crazy, in the second Anthony dried him up, but Andy is a great fighter.”

In general, he did not answer the question. More precisely, he answered, and brightly, but earlier.

Wilder vs. Ruiz – WBC gives go-ahead

Recall that these two met twice in 2019, when an underdog from Mexico scored the Briton ahead of schedule and took all his titles, and six months later, he ingloriously lost in a rematch by a decision of the judges.

Hearn says he “wouldn’t lie – the Wilder vs. AJ fight is a lot bigger than the Joshua-Ruiz trilogy.”

“But let’s see what comes of it all,” he added.

Wilder’s coach previously stated that “dudes like Ruiz, Joshua and Usyk can’t even get close to Wilder when he’s in shape, composed and focused.” Yeah. Just then, Ruiz told what kind of blow he would knock out Wilder.
