Andy Ruiz Jr believes he already knows how Anthony Joshua will approach their rematch, and doesn’t think it will work out well for him.
The Mexican-American knocked out and dethroned the British champion on June 1 in New York to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles.

Now, the pair are set for a second fight as Joshua activated his contractual rematch clause.
This is no problem for Ruiz though, who fully believes that after beating AJ once, he’ll be able to do it again.
The 29-year-old told ESPN Mexico: “I think he will want to run a little more, move around.
“But he is too big, he has a lot of muscle and it will be very difficult for him to do that.”
There is currently an ongoing dispute over the date and location of the rematch with AJ’s team having announced it for December 7 in Saudi Arabia.
Ruiz denied this would be the case and has now revealed talks are ongoing to find a resolution.
He continued: “I have not signed anything yet, we are negotiating everything.
