Joshua Hint At Brutal Ruiz Defeat

Anthony Joshua hinted that Andy Ruiz Jr will simply become a face from his heavyweight past as he bristled with brutal intentions at the final press conference.

Joshua quietly entered the room with an unshaven face, perhaps a sign of relentless training in a private gym in the British embassy, rather than hours in front of the assembled media in Saudi Arabia.

Ruiz Jr, the beaming unified champion, was dripping in glistening jewellery, the spoils of that stunning victory at New York’s Madison Square Garden in June.

Wrapped around his relaxed shoulders was a New York Knicks jersey, which he had worn to his victorious post-fight press conference. Purely a coincidence, or a pointed reminder of Joshua’s darkest night?

The Mexican had hoodwinked the boxing world with his charm offensive before the first fight and grinned his way through the customary introductions at the rematch presser.

Trainer Manny Robles insisted he has been “tough” on the baby-faced champion, but his fighter had received the “perfect” sparring and now was the “perfect” time. Ruiz Jr even announced that it was the “perfect place” to make history. Everything seemed perfect.
