Andy Ruiz's Trainer is Very Confident: Joshua Will Get Shocked!

By Miguel Rivera

He has been working with him for two years, and all that time has allowed veteran trainer Manny Robles to realize that Andy Ruiz has the talent and hunger to cause an upset this coming June 1 in New York.

On that date, Ruiz will challenge Anthony Joshua for the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO heavyweight titles.

"Andy is a fighter with different characteristics, what you see on the outside has nothing to do with what's inside, he's a guy with a big heart, a Mexican who likes to fight. I think he's never seen in the history of boxing a heavyweight with his characteristics," Robles said to ESPN Deportes.

Finally, when only a few days remaining before the fight, Manny stressed that Andy's maturity will help him deal with the unified champion.

"I dare to compare him with those fighters who give everything of themselves and leave everything in the ring, like an Oscar Valdez, an Erik Morales, a Marco Antonio Barrera. I feel that [June 1] will be Andy's night, we love the challenge and we will arrive with a great fight plan," Robles said. 

"We have to dare to dream, that's what we came to the United States to do, to triumph, to give our bit to this country and all Mexicans, this goes all over Mexico, that night we will surprise the world. Andy is a boxer who has not touched the canvas, he had that defeat, which for many people he actually won (against Joseph Parker), but hey, I've always been among the people who believe that you learn more from defeat than from victory. He does not want to lose again and he is seeing life differently.

"He has never trained as hard as he is now, I see him more motivated than ever. We came from a 10-week camp for fight with Alexander Dimitrenko, a fighter with the same height as Joshua. He followed the training and we are going in with a better preparation."

[QUOTE=AdonisCreed;19771168]Right, Andy has to make the fight real uncomfortable for Joshua and come out strong. I just don't know if he can/will do it. And also the drawback is that will leave him open to be countered. And AJ has…

[QUOTE=Brettcappe;19770840]Many of my posts have me ripping Joshua. I do realize that although he is talented he also has flaws that the british fans would rather not acknowledge. IMHO the only chance that Ruiz has is to jump on him…
