By Mike Parrott
Andy Ruiz Jr. believes that he will end Anthony Joshua's career when they fight again on December 7. The rematch is only a week away and both of them filmed their 'Gloves Are Off' segment.
Ruiz Jr-Joshua 2 is only just over a week away and with that knowledge, all the promotional media for the fight is being released quickly.
On Sky Sports' 'Gloves Are Off', Joshua and Ruiz fought off again, but this time with a battle of words rather than their punches.

When asked if Ruiz Jr. is trying to end Joshua's career, the Mexican had this to say:
"I have to. I have to, right? He's trying to take my career as well. It's either me or him inside the ring. I will and I am."
The comment comes after Tyson Fury also said recently that if Andy Ruiz Jr. knocks out Joshua, then he has to retire.
Fury told the True Geordie Podcast:
"If he gets knocked out twice in a row, I can't see him continuing to be fair...Every man does what he wants to do but I think - he doesn't need the money and two knockout losses is a shattering to your career."
Joshua had been due to face Jarrell Miller in the summer before the New Yorker tested positive for three banned substances.
Ruiz Jr. stepped in at six weeks' notice and was given little chance before upsetting the odds.
