    Be seeing alot of rumors about this wack ass fight. Eddie is offering Ruiz a couple of million to come lay down for Whyte next summer and keep him busy until he can get his title shot. Why not offer those millions to someone who needs the money like Ortiz and who would bring the chance of upsetting Whyte instead of just handing it over the fat ass Ruiz.


    Eddie saying he made Ruiz a Seven figure offer

    If ruiz gets in shape I’d probably favour him in this fight. I like thIs match up.
    Whyte beats Ortiz! He’s old and has a overblown reputation

    Ortiz just looked amazing against Wilder and would wreck the hype around Whyte. Ruiz isn't gonna do nothing but eat and lose.

    whos he beat? Even more important who’s he beat since he’s been off the juice?

    He’s famous for being knocked out twice by wilder and he’s over fckin 40. I’d take Whyte and Ruiz over him. And maybe a few others as well

    Look at their last fight and tell me who is srs about their boxing skills and who isn't. Ruiz is done. Ortiz is still trying. No real boxing fan should ever want to see Ruiz in the ring again. He is just coming for checks now and ain't real bout it no more.

    Age doesn't matter at HW. Big George already proved that

    This is an action fight for as long as it lasts. I like it. Whyte is a good fighter but has poor defense and terrible footwork and balance. If Ruiz comes in under 300 pounds he flattens him.

    I would love to see Whyte vs Ruiz think would be a good fight assuming Ruiz doesn't come in even worse shape......I would also like to see Whyte retire Ortiz for good.

    I aint buying this he looked good vs wilder BS......pretty much anyone half decent looks good against wilder until he KO them that's just how he fights.

    Age and drug cheating only matters if it's a victim on Wilder's resume to them.

    Great fight. I'll be rooting for Ruiz so he can finally prove how overrated Whyte is around here.

    Whoever takes the camp and fight more seriously will probably win.
    Both have looked morbidly out of shape and terrible in their last outings. The difference being that Ruiz fought an actual threat and way better opponent.
    I wouldn't trust either guy to come in on point.

    Ruiz was in peoples top 3 after beating AJ and was going to dominate....so many those posts about how he would do vs wilder / fury etc.

    Now Ruiz is apparently done after coming in slightly heavier (he had always been far too overweight) and being totally outboxed by AJ who has been unifying the belts over the last 3 years.

    Both cases the above are extreme....he needs some fights against the top 10 to see where is at simple as that.

    Whyte is in relatively good shape currently from what I have seen...his last fight was after a 2 weeks came and doing no training before that.....I am surprised he even took it....in fact he only took it to force UKAD hand I believe.

    If he is so overated why have wilder and AJ avoided him?

    Whyte has the second-best resume at HW and with a win over Ruiz it only gets better. Hopefully, he can get his more than deserved title shot after this.

    Ortiz should fight a top 5-10 ranked fighter to get back on track, Povetkin or Parker would be a good scrape and show us how much he has left in the tank.

    Really good fight if Ruiz isnt a lazy slob.

    I think Whyte wins either way.

    Yeah they are avoiding a guy whose best wins are over guys who were journeymen.

    The guys is beating Wlad and David Hayes leftovers from 10 years ago

    But he's a Brit so sherdog boxing says he's good <YeahOKJen>
