Ruiz Confident Joshua Bounces Back After Losing Again
Andy Ruiz’s confidence is sky-high heading into December 7th for his rematch with Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia.
Ruiz, who knocked Joshua out in the seventh round to win four of the five major world heavyweight titles, believes even if Joshua falls again that it won’t be the deathknell of his career.
“I think he should take a little break if I beat him,” Ruiz Jr told Sky Sports.
“Let him recuperate, but one or two losses are not going to make a difference. He’s still a warrior, he’s still a great fighter, and I’m sure he’ll bounce back.”
“It means a lot,” Ruiz said of Joshua considering him the best fighter in the world due to his status as unified world heavyweight champion.
“He said that because I defeated him. He was the greatest heavyweight champion of the world. He had all the belts and now I do, so it’s a big blessing to be in this position.”
