“It’ll Be Sweet When Joshua Wins”
With many thinking Anthony Joshua’s days as an elite boxer can be numbered, his promoter Eddie Hearn feels his fighter is ready for his rematch with Andy Ruiz.
“He’s trained hard and is just tapering down now, probably getting his last sparring in,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“It took him a while to get over the defeat, he had to ask himself some questions, but the way he has bounced back is admirable. This isn’t a guy shirking a challenge. It’s not a guy asking for an easy warm-up fight. Time and time again, he has gone in at the deep end before his time, he’s doing it again. A warm-up fight is not in Anthony Joshua’s vocabulary.
“Creating a legacy has been the motivation and I believe he will win and when he does, it will be sweet,” Hearn said ahead of December 7th in Saudi Arabia. “It’s tough though, it’s a 50/50 fight, he has to overcome that mental warfare of being stopped by Ruiz Jr last time out.”
