"Anthony Joshua Is Finished" Following His Defeat To Andy Ruiz Jr

"Anthony Joshua Is Finished" Following His Defeat To Andy Ruiz Jr

Anthony Joshua is "finished" following his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. Well, that's according to Glenn McCrory who believes his boxing career could be over.

Joshua lost his world titles after being stopped by the unheralded Ruiz Jr on his American debut.

The 29-year-old Brit got dropped FOUR times before referee Mike Griffin halted the contest in the seventh round.

Team Joshua is set to trigger the rematch clause, but McCrory thinks this could be it for him.

"He's bottom of the pile. He got beaten up by Andy Ruiz," he said.

"I think he's finished. It's not just the defeat, anybody can get defeated, but the nature of it."

McCrory added: "Andy Ruiz is not an elite athlete, he is not a heavyweight great. He will not go down in icons of legends at all, but he is a tough kid and he seized his opportunity.

"I have to say well done Andy Ruiz. Anthony Joshua let himself and the nation down.
