Joshua vs Ruiz: Briton shows wonderful body transformation ahead of Saudi rematch

Share

World heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr believes his re-match with Anthony Joshua will be a harder fight than his stunning victory in June but says all the pressure is on the Briton ahead of their showdown in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

Joshua was handed his first career defeat with a seventh minute knock-out at Madison Park New York, thus losing his WBA, IBF & WBO.

The Brit's huge earnings will not be the biggest in boxing history, with Floyd Mayweather holding that record for his £250million fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

Speaking about the diversity of ticket sales, Frank Smith, CEO of Matchroom Boxing, said: "The matches in which Anthony Joshua participated achieved record sales around the world, whether in London or NY".

Despite his emphatic loss last time round, Joshua is the narrow bookmakers' favourite and spoke with confidence at the public workout that he could right the wrongs of that fateful night in the Big Apple. "But if he wants to bang, it's better for me. I've got to show my skills, my talent".

Trump reaffirms commitment to end HIV/AIDS in 10 years
There were 208 new cases of the virus in 2018, a steady decline from 437 cases in 2004, according to the province. The vaccine would be given to people without HIV to prevent them from being infected in the future.

Joshua added: "When I win, I will be like, "F*** everybody".

"I don't know where he is in his life".

The Mexican-American (33-1, 22 KOs) - whose sole career defeat came against Kiwi Joseph Parker back in 2016 - vowed to "prove everyone wrong" again as he displayed his lightning fast hands while smashing the pads at the public workout.

'If they're going to be investing this kind of money in the sport, we've got to be realists and say this is what's going to happen.

"I think what won him the Olympics was boxing, and I think what won him the world titles against Wladimir Klitschko and everyone else was boxing and being smart, '' he explained according to the report on Sky Sports". Sometimes fighters lose, it makes them weaker. And he will pick up the enormous cheque win, lose or draw.
