Ruiz wants a third fight with Joshua
Today Andy Ruiz Jr. (34-2, 22 KOs) will face one of the biggest challenges of his career when he faces Luis Ortiz (33-2, 28 KOs) in the ring. The American is fully focused on today's test, but did not hesitate to share one of his wishes for a future career.
For Ruiz, this is the third fight with Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs). Recall that in June 2019, the Briton was at the top of the royal division when Ruiz unexpectedly knocked him down in the seventh round. In a rematch six months later, AJ regained the IBF, WBA, and WBO belts with a points victory over Ruiz, who was clearly not at his best.
“Before I retire, I would like to meet Joshua again. This trilogy needs to happen, especially at heavyweight. We have unfinished business with him. The rematch with Usyk did not work out, he did not regain the titles and splashed out a little energy. Events like this don't just happen. Now he is back, I am here, and I would like us to fight again, ”said the 32-year-old boxer from California.
