Fans Warn Joshua Against Underrating Ruiz


Fans have urged Anthony Joshua not to underrate his opponent, Andy Ruiz Jr, in their re-match in Saudi Arabia.

Ruiz shocked Joshua to win the IBF, WBA and WBO titles in June but a second fight will take place in Saudi Arabia on December 7.

The fans gave the warning after Joshua announced his presence in Saudi Arabia on Twitter on Wednesday.

According to the fans, Joshua should not over-confident ahead of the re-match.

Some of the fans also highlighted the areas the British boxer of Nigerian descent should work on ahead of the Ruiz bout.

One of them, Dennis Aron said, “Champions do go down, champions don’t stay down. See you up there with thebelts. Let’s go Josh, but never underestimate.”

Another fan, Faniran Olufemi, urged Joshua to be concentrated, saying, “You need complete concentration and full focus,no distraction. You will win again.”

Luke Van warned Joshua that losing would affect his career, noting that “If you lose again then your career goes backwards years. No pressure.”

“Brother, watch out for his close attack. He will still try to deny you your usual long punch. Try to train on shorthand,” Tajudeen said.

“Go get those belts back and send a resounding statement to the rest of the heavy weight division. Go Naija boy, we’re proud of you,” Dr Nnamdi Ugwunze added.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has vowed to “expose” Ruiz in their world heavyweight championship rematch.

“I know some of the attributes he possesses, and some of the weaknesses. I have to go about exposing him a little bit more.” Joshua said.
