Joshua: After I Beat Ruiz - Bow To My Feet and Tell Me I'm Great!

Anthony Joshua opened the doors to his training camp at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield yesterday as he draws nearer to his colossal Heavyweight World title rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia on Saturday December 7, shown live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the US.

Joshua was in a fiery mood as he looks to avenge the first defeat of his professional career at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1 and be crowned a two-time Heavyweight World Champion by winning back his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO crowns in the 'Clash on the Dunes'.

"I'm fighting the best man in the world now. I'm going to whup him, and show how great I am. 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," Joshua said.

"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. It’s a restart, that’s the best way of explaining it.

"We’ve had plenty of time to prepare for the rematch, I’ve always had the challenger mindset. I’m in for a tough fight but I don’t have any fear of Andy. I’m not gun-shy, I’m ready to swing and trade."

Bow down to the king, peasants. Ruiz was a one hit wonder.

I think many are missing the irony in what he's saying...

[QUOTE=THEFRESHBRAWLER;20201885]it’s something fishy about this fight. I guess anything involving Hearn is fishy but hopefully this fight can go on without any controversy like Dillian Whyte PEDs and dirty gloves[/QUOTE] I don’t think so, simply because Ruiz is a Haymon…

Joshua is sounding a little creepy here.
