Tyson Fury shares a bold prediction for Joshua vs. Ruiz Jr. 2

Tyson Fury shares a bold prediction for Joshua vs. Ruiz Jr. 2

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is not expecting anything different to happen on Saturday night, when Andy Ruiz defends the WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO world titles against Anthony Joshua.

On Dec. 7 in Saudi Arabia, Joshua is looking to reclaim heavyweight gold after the stunning knockout loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. back in June.

The Mexican's style proved to be incredibly hard for Joshua and footage of him on the pads as around 300 people watched his public workout in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has got people thinking the same problems will persist.

Anthony Joshua who is preparing for his rematch against Andy Ruiz was asked to pick who he thinks will be champion in the ring between these two world-class strikers. "The pressure isn't on me because I followed my dream, made my dreams come true", Ruiz said ahead of the so-called "Clash on the Dunes".

"But I want him to win because I know what he's put into it, how much it means to him and because he's a mate".

'I think his last few fights have showed that his chin is a bit suspect, no doubt about that. Try and do the same thing you did the first time, the second time. Someone said to me that it would be massive for Matchroom to get hold of the belts again.

Ruiz Jr has suffered only one defeat in 34 fights, losing a majority decision to Joseph Parker in 2016.

"I'm forever changing, that's what training camp is about, evolution, like night and day", Joshua said during an open workout.

Of course, we'll see where Joshua's mind is when he steps through the ropes but he's saying the right words leading up to the fight. "I felt like I was boxing him around even though I was the shorter guy. Styles make fights. His style was flawless for me to become the unified heavyweight champion".
