Ruiz Jr and Joshua meet for a second time on Saturday in Saudi Arabia following the Mexican-American's shocking upset victory over the previously undefeated Brit in New York.

The pair of heavyweights faced off at the final pre-fight press conference on Wednesday ahead of fight night with Ruiz Jr responding to a heckler from the crowd.

A heckler shouted "Two-time" as Ruiz Jr and Joshua came head-to-head to which the unified champion replied by saying "And Still".

Meanwhile, Ruiz Jr expects Joshua to adopt a cautious strategy when they run it back.

"I'm expecting that," he said. "But if he wants to bang, it's better for me. I love to bang because that's the fighter that I am. December 7 we have to pressure, work the body, break him down. Especially his mentality.

"We've got to see where he's at because all the pressure is on him. The pressure isn't on me because I followed my dream, made my dreams come true. Of course I want more though - I want the legacy of Andy Ruiz Jr.

"People haven't seen me cut off the ring," he warned. "I actually break them down even faster when they try to box me around. We all have a plan until we get hit, like Mike Tyson would say. I'm pretty sure he will want to box me around.

"One punch can change the fight. That's what happened on June 1. It might be a little harder than the first time. I've got to show my skills, my talent."
