Andy Ruiz Jr Hits Back At Claims He Hasn't Been Training For Anthony Joshua Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr Hits Back At Claims He Hasn't Been Training For Anthony Joshua Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr has hit back at the suggestion that he's not in training ahead of his world heavyweight title rematch against Anthony Joshua in December.

In June Ruiz Jr shocked the world when he stopped Joshua, ending the Brit's undefeated record and taking his world titles in the process, and the pair will meet again in December in a rematch.

Tyson Fury had claimed the Mexican hadn't trained in two months, telling 'Behind the Gloves,' "I know that Ruiz has been running around in a lot of Rolls Royces and doing a lot of TV shows, eating a lot of tacos and he's not been in the gym for two-and-a-half months, because I've been speaking to the guys and nobody's seen him."

The 29-year-old has hit back at those suggestions and told people not to underestimate him, saying, "Everyone's gonna say this and that, but at the end of the day they don't know s*** but what they see on Instagram. We working. I want them to sleep on me again and think I'm just partying. We coming hard."

The fight will take place in Saudi Arabia on December 7th but after Eddie Hearn had confirmed the fight, which was always going to happen because of a rematch clause, the Mexican claimed he hadn't agreed a deal yet, wanting more money.

Those issues have since been ironed out but there has been criticism of having the fight in the middle east because of the 'sportwashing' that Saudi Arabia has been accused of.

Ruiz was a late replacement for Jarrell 'Baby' Miller for AJ's first fight in the US and wasn't expected to win the fight, however he knocked the formerly undefeated Olympic champion down four times.

AJ has claimed that he's lost 'a bit of passion' for the sport and, speaking to the Independent, Hearn had some harsh words for his charge saying, "I think he's just got to snap out of it.

"I think he was disillusioned with the sport because he wanted to fight Deontay Wilder.

"He couldn't get that fight and as he said in the interview, he didn't really want to fight Andy Ruiz. But tough, you fought him and you fought a real hungry guy."
