Anthony Joshua Has A Damning Message For His Haters Ahead Of Andy Ruiz Jr Rematch
Anthony Joshua is planning to put his middle finger up to the world and shout "f**k everybody" if he reclaims the heavyweight world titles.
The former unified heavyweight king has been the subject of intense criticism following his shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in New York.
But 'AJ' wants to silence his doubters and is confident he can rip away the heavyweight titles from Ruiz Jr when they meet again next Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
"When I win, I will be like, 'F**k everybody'," the Brit explained. "This is fighting. One loss doesn't take the spots off a cheetah. I came into boxing to fight, I didn't come to be a journeyman.

I'm going to that next level. And when I win *puts middle fingers up* I will be like, 'F*** everybody'." pic.twitter.com/VXvQv78ILm

"I've been champion, I've been Olympic champion, I've been world silver medalist. You can't ask me about how I feel after a loss, you have to hold some regard to what we're doing in this boxing industry, that's probably where I'm coming a from.
"And that's where I listen now to what people say and it's like, 'Put some respect by our name'.
"We don't play games when it comes to boxing, we're serious and I now after I took the loss and I've had time to reflect, it's like, 'f***ing hell, I took this sh*t seriously'."
The highly anticipated heavyweight clash is less than a week away with both fighters slimming down ahead of their second meeting.
Joshua took to social media to reveal his new-slimmed down look ahead of his fight with Ruiz Jr.
