Following the anticipated fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr, the Mexican boxer has sent a strong warning to Anthony Joshua ahead of their heavyweight rematch next week.
The Mexican boxer first defeated the British-Nigerian boxer in June and has arrived at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh on Tuesday, November 26, for their rematch on December 7.
When asked how he felt about the fight, Ruiz said: ‘It feels good. You know I made history in New York and I’ll make history again in Saudi Arabia.’
Andy Ruiz Jr comments on Anthony Joshua’s weight loss:
‘I saw videos where he looked slimmer. I don’t know if that’s an advantage or a disadvantage, ‘ Ruiz Jr told Sky Sports.
‘I don’t know if he will take the punches as well as he did when he weighed more.’
Ruiz Jr who also lost some weight added: ‘Me? People are saying I lost too much weight, I won’t be strong, he will move me around. I am losing eight pounds from what I weighed on June 1. I’ll still be the same, I’ll still be strong.
