Andy Ruiz Jr Vows To End Anthony Joshua's Career In The Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr Vows To End Anthony Joshua's Career In The Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr has delivered a blunt and brutal message to Anthony Joshua after finally agreeing to rematch him in Saudi Arabia.

The Mexican-American has been guaranteed "millions more" than the $9 million (£7.3 million) originally set out in the rematch clause.

As a result, he'll defend his heavyweight world titles in the Middle East, and he's vowed to end Joshua's "career in the desert".

"I dethroned the king June 1st and made history becoming the first Mexican/American Heavyweight Champion of the world. I'm looking forward to ending his career in the desert. Mostrare la grandeza del boxeo mexicano en Arabia Saudita," he wrote on Twitter.

The two have been going back-and-forth following their first meeting, with the Brit dismissing Ruiz Jr's showing back in June 1 in New York.

"By a lucky punch. By a punch sent by the gods," he said about his sole professional defeat.

"I don't know what concussion is, but for sure, after the fight I didn't know what round [the fight was stopped].

"So, I'm just shocked it took Ruiz Jr another four rounds to get me out. Let me concuss, Ruiz Jr -- he won't get back up.

"Ruiz Jr got hit by a flash knockdown -- he was still raw, he wasn't well-done, he wasn't cooked yet. I should have left him a little bit longer.

"But the instinct in me was: 'Boom!' I ended up getting caught with a left hook on the top of the head. He ain't that skillful. He's a good fighter."
