I Want My Respect Back, Not Belt, Says Anthony Joshua


"I don't know if he wants to exchange punches, but I'd love for him to do that because I'm the more skilled boxer", Ruiz said in an interview published on Saturday by The Telegraph.

Frequently, world heavyweight champions - and Ruiz holds the World Boxing Affiliation, World Boxing Organisation and Worldwide Boxing Federation belts - have a bulging entourage of brokers and backroom workers, all having fun with a race on the gravy prepare. Sometimes fighters lose, it makes them weaker.

"When I lost, it made me stronger, and then you see other guys, it softens them, weakens them". "I'm sure he's going to be ready for this". There are many things that nobody knows.

"I think what won him the Olympics was boxing, and I think what won him the world titles against [Wladimir] Klitschko and everyone else was boxing and being smart".

Joshua was urged to change his muscular physique in the aftermath of the defeat, but Whyte warned him not to wipe out his naturally powerful abilities.

Joshua was dropped to the canvas four times in the June bout and Ruiz, who has never been knocked out in his professional career, said that he would look to control the fight and use his speed against his taller opponent. The two heavyweights go head to head one more time with every title on the line in a highly anticipated boxing showdown of the year in Saudi Arabia early in December.

"His greatest strength is being big and strong and powerful and in better physical condition than most of the boys he fought".

Tyson Fury will also be keeping an eye on the fight and believes the pressure is on Joshua to win this match.

When asked if a rematch of Joshua can occur, Whyte said: "I hope so". Boxing is a hard, unsafe game.

"What do people think this is? Even if he loses his next 10 fights, I would still like to rematch him". "I can't let him grow balls in there".
