Former Heavy-weight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has vowed to “whoop” Andy Ruiz in their heavyweight rematch in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
Andy Ruiz, a Mexican-American boxer stunned the world of boxing when he defeated Joshua in 7 rounds at New York’s
Madison Square Garden in June, but the Brit insists things will turn out differently on December 7.
‘I’m fighting the best man in the world now. I’m going to whup him, and show how great I am,’ Joshua told Sky Sports.
He also added, “They think he’s so great, so when I beat him I want everybody to bow to my feet and tell me how great I am.
‘I couldn’t beat Ruiz Jr before and get the credit I deserved. You saw me in the ring [before the fight] – I wasn’t fighting King Kong, was I? I didn’t have that mindset.
‘Apparently I’m fighting the quickest hands and the best fighter in the division. So once I beat him I want everybody to bow to me.’
The upcoming rematch between Joshua and Ruiz tagged ‘clash of the dunes’ is being sponsored by the Saudi Arabian
government with reports circulating that about $40m has been budgeted for the fight which is to be shared between both
boxers and their promoters.
