Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr last month shocked the boxing community after Joshua lost to Ruiz. There was a lot of anticipation as to how Joshua would perform in his first match in the US soil and the result of the match came as a shock. However, Ruiz’s victory was quite a feelgood moment in the otherwise violent sport. However, now that the match is done and dusted, the two are gearing up for a rematch!
Let us take a closer look at the Joshua vs Ruiz rematch and see what’s going on with the two competitors:
Anthony Joshua Returns to Training
A month after the loss, Anthony ‘AJ’ Joshua is back to training. The star dismissed rumours of being injured before or after the match and gracefully accepted the defeat that he faced. However, he seems in high spirits and is certain that he will win the rematch.
Preparing for the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr rematch, AJ is working specifically on his head movement this time, which will give him better opportunity to avoid the punches thrown at him by Ruiz Jr.
