Anthony Joshua Asks Cheeky Question To Andy Ruiz Jr After Face-Off

Anthony Joshua cheekily asked Andy Ruiz Jr "what's the strategy to beat you?" after their face-off at the Diriyah Arena.

Ruiz Jr and Joshua came face-to-face after their final pre-fight press conference ahead of fight night on Saturday.

The two heavyweights faced off inside before heading outside for a second face-off, where Joshua asked an ambitious question to the defending champion.

During the face off, Ruiz Jr and Joshua had a respectful conversation with the Brit jokingly asking Ruiz Jr: "So, what's the strategy to beat you?"

The Mexican-American began to answer the question before Joshua laughed it off.

Meanwhile, Joshua spoke about his challenger mindset in the pre-fight press conference.

"It's interesting to be on this side of the table," he said. "As you said in my 16th fight, I challenged for the world title, challenged for the title again with Klitschko, then Parker, and now I'm challenging again, so this is my fourth title challenge in a short space of time.

"I'm used to being in this position, and even when you're champion, I think Andy being a respected heavyweight he knows you have to have the challenge and mindset.

"All these quotes that these fighters come up with is reality, challenger mindset. I've said that previously when I had the belts around my waist.

"Now I'm speaking this into existence, this is my challenge and mindset. So, I'm going back to my 16th fight, focused and determined on the goal."

Will 'AJ' reclaim the heavyweight world titles against Ruiz Jr? Let us know what you think.
