This should be a lesson to all these young fighters. Don't purposely delay the big fights. Shit happens in fights. Crawford, Spence, etc.. You can get caught. You can get a bad cut. Hurt outside of the ring. Shit happens and Mr. Murphy is out there. Just waiting to mess up your best laid plans. How many millions won't be made by Wilder, Fury & Joshua now?
Now we can say: "Wilder definitely would have crushed Joshua." But, in fairness, can we be sure that Wilder could have gotten up from that left hook that Ruiz got up from? We've seen Deontay get stunned by lesser shots than that. I'm sure Wilder & Fury both will be talking massive shit now. But, in the back of their minds you KNOW they're thinking about this.
