Andy Ruiz Jr. Expects Trilogy Fight With Anthony Joshua In The Future
Former unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (34-2, 22 KOs) states that he is looking forward to settling the score with Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs). The two-time world heavyweight champion Joshua is looking forward to winning back his belt against Oleksandr Usyk next month.
The Ukrainian boxer, who beat Joshua on points in September, will be standing in the same position as Ruiz did in 2019. During that moment, the American traveled to Saudi Arabia to defend the world titles he took away from Joshua earlier on in the year.
Joshua has the opportunity of rectifying the flawed approach he had against Usyk in their first meeting. “If Usyk doesn’t do the same thing I did (he can win), I’m sure he doesn’t because he’s been on top of the game in cruiserweight and undisputed in cruiserweight,” Ruiz told @idboxingnews.
“I think it could go either way. I know Anthony Joshua has a new trainer in Robert Garcia, he’s over there trying to show him the Mexican style to be aggressive, throw a lot of punches, to be first, to come at him.
“Even in sparring it’s a little tricky but we adjust to it, I’m pretty sure if Anthony Joshua has been sparring a lot because that’s exactly what helps us, and having different styles in there, he can adjust.”
