Ruiz Will Do “Best” To Regain His Championships
Andy Ruiz Jr made it clear last weekend that he was in no way prepared for Anthony Joshua in their rematch for the unified world heavyweight championships.
Ruiz walked into the ring 15 pounds heavier than he did for his first fight against Joshua last June inside Madison Square Garden, and barely trained for the fight in Saudi Arabia.
“I think we would have trained a lot better, I know I gained a lot of weight, I couldn’t throw the combinations I wanted. There are no excuses in life, you have to train harder, learn from this moment I had. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs, and this was a down. I will start again and I will do my best to be champion again,” said Ruiz to ESPN Deportes.
“I have to work harder. And I thank everyone for supporting me, I know I failed them, but I promise you that we will do better and we will win. There is more history to do, it is the beginning and we will be better.”
