By Charles Brun: is beaten in his December 7th rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr.Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) thinks that a fight between him and Ruiz is a bigger match in the U. S than a fight between him and Joshua.

Ruiz (33-1, 22 KOs) has become a huge star overnight since pulling off a major upset in stopping //WBO heavyweight champion Joshua (22-1, 21 KOs) on June 1 at in . Ruiz, 29, came into the fight viewed as having no shot at beating Joshua, and completely discounted by the world.

After getting dropped in round 3, Ruiz stormed back with a vengeance to knock Joshua down 4 times in the fight before it was stopped in round 7.


At this point, it would be too much of a risk to put Joshua in with a good heavyweight with a similar style as Ruiz. If Hearn made that move, Joshua might suffer another knockout loss, and that would make it pointless for him to fight Ruiz again.
