    Joshua’s problems go back further than Ruiz and, tbh, I’m not sure it’s as simple as “fear of getting hit”, considering he fought Pulev like he was there to collect gambling debts.

    I’ve previously argued the man’s problem is getting caught between styles in the aftermath of Klitschko. McCracken saw him get knocked down, tried to change him into a boxer instead of a brawler, but inexplicably forget to teach him feet placement, proper head movement and a guard. McCracken assumed, possibly correctly, that Joshua would get into trouble continuing to fight stupid, like he did for large parts of that particular fight.

    Of course, his coaching and/or Joshua’s boxing IQ come under scrutiny here, because he has gotten into trouble anyway.

    It’s possible that there is a limit to what a guy without an amateur career can do, but my take is, thanks to their combined incompetence, he’s neither boxer nor brawler, now.
    great post

      Doesn’t take a genius to know Aj is fragile. His time of being considered an elite heavyweight is quickly coming to an end, even in this weak era of heavyweights.

        Might want to correct your statement. AJ is written off for quitting in his corner. Wilder is praised because he went out exactly how he wanted to go out to the #1 HW in the world. You may call him all the names you wish but he lost to the best in the division.

        Something AJ has yet to do is fight a top 3 fighter aka Wilder and Fury.

          Anyone that points to punch stats is a casual. Fights are scored round by round and it isn’t who threw and landed the most either….just in case you were unaware.

            It wasn’t a one fight 120 million dollar deal but let’s not let facts get in the way of a good ol fashioned emotional conjecture.

              Tyson Fury is better than Deontay Wilder. He hasn’t proven anything beyond that. You can romanticize the fantasy that somehow getting beat down and layed out is a good thing all you want. But Deontay Wilder went out. Anthony Joshua did not.

                So punch stats don’t count. Got it… What about the judges scorecards? Do those count?

                  power landed: usyk 96. joshua 71.
                  jabs landed: usyk 52. joshua 52.

                  official cards: 117-112. 116-112. 115-113.

                  Usyk had AJ hurt a few times.

                  8-4 or 9-3 are both fair. 7-5 is too favourable ta AJ.

                    That's nonsense. What was truly dominant when he met fury. He wasn't gunshy he simply rarely needed anymore than a jab and simple 1-2 to beat his opponements. Not giving fury full credit for that win shows you are simply looking through Rose tinted glasses. No reflexes? Yet years later he schooled joshua for the majority of the fight looking the quicker man in his 40's. He simply got it wrong tactically and allowed Joshua back into that fight he didn't land a glove on fury
