Anthony Joshua: I Would Beat Andy Ruiz Nine Out of Ten Times!

Anthony Joshua feels confident that he will beat Andy Ruiz in their anticipated rematch.

This past June, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Joshua was dropped four times by Ruiz, before the contest was stopped in the seventh round. Ruiz captured the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA world heavyweight titles. A few days later Joshua would exercise an immediate rematch clause.

The rematch is likely to take place on December 7 or December 14. Initially it appeared that it was going to land at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, but now it seems that Saudi Arabia has offered up a lot of money to host the event.

Mentally, Joshua has told reporters that he's not bothered over the fact that he suffered his first career defeat.

He feels the loss will serve him well as he continues his professional career. And, he predicts that if he was matched against Ruiz in ten fights - he would come away with the win in nine of those bouts.

“If you put me and Ruiz in a machine, nine times out of ten I should beat him. That was just his night. He got the win and we get to do it again at the end of the year. Many of AJ’s heavyweight rivals took their opportunities to rub salt into the wounds following his defeat," Joshua told JD Sports.

“I’ve taken Ls. I know how to fight and I know I’ll beat most of these top heavyweights. The day I stop is the day they shouldn’t fear me. But until then, just know I’m knocking on everyone’s door and I’m coming. I’ve done it once, I can do it again.

“I’ve won, I’ve unified the division twice, become heavyweight champion. I’ve been put on my back, I’ve lost. I’m an experienced fighter, so we’ll see what more I have to give.”

He’s taken his loss completely bitterly. Nothing graceful about his latest comments. Sore loser talk from a protected paper champ. Ruiz finishes him again in a rematch and Casuals will still claim Wilder is cherrypicking Ruiz. [I]Yet somehow Aj didn’t.[/I]

It's going to be real awkward when he loses to ruiz again. What's he gonna say, he would beat him 9 times out of 11? :lol1:
