Deontay Wilder Gets it Right: Ruiz Defeated AJ!
Wilder had predicted that there would be a shock upset and that Ruiz Jr would pull off a win over the undefeated Anthony Joshua. Wilder later told media that he had predicted it and was right all along. His co-manager Shelly, however, turned out to be wrong as he had said that Joshua would beat Ruiz in about six rounds!
Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr. – Who Would Win in a Rematch?
Given that we are really close to an Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr rematch being officially confirmed, there are many who believe that this might fall through because AJ has certain strict demands when it comes to the location of the rematch, as he wants it to happen in the UK!
Given that a rematch does take place, odds currently indicate that Andy Ruiz Jr will lose the belts and Anthony Joshua would reclaim what he lost. However, many in boxing have suggested AJ to go through a couple of more fights before he takes on Ruiz again.
