Former heavyweight champion, Andy Ruiz, has said he lost to Anthony Joshua on Saturday night, because he gained too much weight during the preparation for the rematch.
Ruiz yelled into the microphone, shouting “Who want to see the third fight”,?
Quoting his words, he said “I gained too much weight”.
Joshua, meanwhile, who was 247.75 for the first fight, was a slimmer and trimmer but still a rock-solid 237.8 pounds for the rematch. He was fit, had ample stamina and was able to box circles around Ruiz.
“Never a change in mentality. You know the saying, ‘Stay hungry, stay humble.’ I have stayed hungry and I have stayed humble,” Joshua said. “I am humble in defeat and I will remain humble in victory. Thank you again to Andy Ruiz and his family, to Saudi Arabia and all of the traveling fans, all of my supporters.”
