World Champion Andy Ruiz Says He Must End Joshua’s Career

By Tim Parsons-

Andy Ruiz has told Anthony Joshua that he has to end his career in their upcoming rematch in Saudi Arabia. 

Speaking to Johnny Nelson on ”The Gloves Are Off”  as part of the build up to their big rematch, Ruiz aid he had an obligation  to end Joshua’s career. He said:

“I have to,”  “I have to, right? He’s trying to take my career as well.

“It’s either me or him inside the ring. I will and I am”, the current world champion said. Ruiz went ahead to suggest that Joshua quit because of the way the fight was going. He added:

“I think he quit because of the way it was going.

“I think he was out of it and didn’t know where he was at that moment. I think he quit.

“Would I have quit under that sort of attack? It depends on how hurt I was. But I don’t quit. If I fall, I fall.”

CHAMPION

Joshua insisted he is still of championship material whatever people say. He said: “I lost, the referee waved it off. I roll with it.

“I am a champion no matter what anyone says about me.

“If the conclusion is that I quit, why didn’t I just stay down? He hit me with a shot that I could not recover from but I still stuck in there.

“I got dropped four times and I just kept getting up.

“The only reason I didn’t walk out of the corner in the seventh round was because my gumshield was not in and I was waiting for the referee to put it in my mouth but he waved it off.

“The main thing is I am still fighting. It would be worse if I did not come back — that is true failure.”

The 30-year-old said: “His style was perfect for me, the way he moves and carries himself in the ring.

“I think he quit because of the way it was going.

“I think he was out of it and didn’t know where he was at that moment. I think he quit.

“Would I have quit under that sort of attack? It depends on how hurt I was. But I don’t quit. If I fall, I fall.”

The rematch takes place on December 7th, with Anthony Joshua the favourite to regain his titles.
