Anthony Joshua Side-By-Side After Weight Loss Ahead Of Andy Ruiz Rematch

By Mike Parrott

Anthony Joshua has lost a little bit of weight ahead of his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr. Ten pounds to be exact and you can tell when you compare the weigh-in photos from both fights.

Anthony Joshua is set for his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday December 7 in Clash of the Dunes.

With all the press-conferences, public workouts, and weigh-ins doe, all that's left is the actual fight.

With Ruiz Jr coming in 15lbs heavier than the initial fight with AJ, the Brit has gone the opposite route, dropping weight, 10.8lbs to be exact.

Hall of Fame Trainer, Freddie Roach, has been on the record to say that AJ should fight around 240lbs normally. Joshua is the lightest he's been in over five years at his current 237lbs.

"I think it was a great decision because Joshua is having trouble carrying that muscle around. He was fading in the late rounds. A big body won't really help him. I was really good for him to get that [mass] off."

With Ruiz Jr. seemingly adding another 15lbs while AJ has dropped weight, you would assume that Joshua is going for a win on points with better conditioning and stamina now.

This is also the heaviest Ruiz Jr. has clocked in at for over ten years.
