Anthony Joshua adopts ‘prison mindset’ for Andy Ruiz Jr world-title rematch

Ruiz Jr. v Joshua 2: Dillian Whyte hopes that Anthony Joshua can start a British fight against the war | Boxing News

Mexican-American Ruiz produced one of boxing's biggest upsets when he dethroned the previously undefeated world champion Joshua with a seventh-round stoppage at New York's Madison Square Garden. "Even though it's a short amount of time, that's why you've said I've trimmed down", Joshua said.

Joshua was urged to make changes in his muscular physique after the defeat, but Whyte warned him not to nullify his naturally powerful assets.

Mexican heavyweight Andy Ruiz Jr has all of the heavyweight belts that Anthony Joshua once owned.

Joshua, 30, will earn the biggest purse of his career, rumoured to be around $50 million, despite being the challenge when he takes on Ruiz in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on Saturday.

After a shock standstill in June, Joshua has undergone another severe training camp in an attempt to eliminate any shortcomings that were ruthlessly exploited by Ruiz Jr., although Whyte insists that his former opponent will realize if he is really ready for an immediate return fight.

Anthony Joshua must overcome the mental hurdle of being knocked down four times in NY by Andy Ruiz Jr.

Coming into the rematch both men have trained ferociously for the contest and could very well both come in at career best condition at Friday's weigh-ins.

"The big thing about controlling the pressure of Andy is you have to train yourself to embrace the pressure and not be restricted, depleted or panicked".

But when Miller had to pull out of the fight after three failed drug tests, Ruiz stepped in, leaving Joshua with a problem finding new sparring partners.

Local media reported that the victims were attending a service at a church in Hantoukoura, in the eastern part of the country. Jihadist attacks have increased in Burkina Faso since 2015, forcing thousands of schools to close down.

"I was this close last time, so next time I won't mess up".

"At 6ft 6in, you must use that jab".

"All he has to do is win seven of 12 rounds".

"The stakes could not be any higher for Joshua, his trainer Robert McCracken, for DAZN, and Eddie Hearn is under huge pressure".

'He saw something that he's never seen before.

That was in 2008 but when it was put to Joshua that he might retire in 2023 he replied: "I could go on longer".

"I want to impose myself in this fight, but I don't want to overlook him", Ruiz added.

And Joshua does not see four more years as necessarily the end.

He said, "I just hope Joshua doesn't listen too much to the things that people say about who needs to lose weight. get away from your main strengths".
