Andy Ruiz Jr vs Usyk after Joshua gets ko'd again

Comment by MrShakeAndBake on 10-13-2019

[QUOTE=SinderellaMan;20120584]Gotta say, Chazz touched and marked up Usyk's face. And Wilder would be his easiest?[/QUOTE] Easiest between him, AJ and Fury... If a man wants to challenge himself it should be praised.

Gotta say, Chazz touched and marked up Usyk's face. And Wilder would be his easiest?
