Ruiz Won’t Make Same Mistake Joshua Did
Heading into December 7th in Saudi Arabia, unified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. refuses tp to think ahead towards fights with Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
“That would be awesome, but first I wanna focus on Joshua,” Ruiz said of fights against Wilder or Fury.
“I don’t wanna talk about another fighter and this and that. My eyes are on the prize and on him, because this is a really serious fight. He wants his belts back, and my job is not to give them to him. I don’t wanna give it to him, man. A lot of people are saying about 15 minutes of fame. F**k that. I’m gonna train hella hard and I’m gonna win.”
Following Ruiz’s shocking knockout win of Joshua on June 1st, Joshua admitted that he became very distracted by the prospect of a fight with Wilder, especially when that’s all anyone else could focus on.
