We’re in the final leg of Joshua-Ruiz fight week. The two met up at their final presser on Thursday, saying about what you’d expect. After the presser, Ruiz said he feels he needs the KO and also that he can win by decision. Joshua asked not to talk about Wilder, then spent a lot of time talking about Wilder.

Common opponent Joseph Parker, who went the distance with both Joshua and Ruiz, broke down the matchup.

Today, we’ll have live coverage of the weigh-in at 3:30 pm ET, plus our staff picks go up at Noon ET.

As for Wilder, he spoke with the LA Times and laid out his case against Joshua and why the fight isn’t happening any time soon. It’s his side, Joshua has his side, and the truth is probably somewhere in the middle of their stories.
