Joshua's face Ruiz Jr for US debut in New York Confirmed

 Anthony Joshua's opponent confirmed as Andy Ruiz Jr for US debut in Madison Square New York.




Andy Ruiz Jr has vowed to ruin Anthony Joshua's ambitions of becoming an undisputed champion when he challenges Britain's heavyweight star at Madison Square Garden on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The California-based Mexican has been confirmed as the new opponent for
Joshua's US debut in New York after Jarrell Miller failed a drug test, meaning the 29-year-old will instead target the WBA 'Super', IBF and WBO titles at the famous Manhattan venue.

Ruiz Jr is fresh from a destructive win over Alexander Dimitrenko, who was stopped after five rounds earlier this month, and he intends to rip away Joshua's belts in his bid to be crowned as Mexico's first world heavyweight champion.








Andy Ruiz Jr Quotes:



"This is my chance to make history," said Ruiz Jr. "I want to be one of those greats like Julio Cesar Chavez, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis. I want to be in that category.

"I think the fight is going toe-to-toe, two guys smashing each other's faces. I'm going in there to throw combinations like I've never done before, to improve my speed.

"A lot of people underestimated me, and I'm used to that. My whole life people underrated me so I'm just going in there to take all. I'm not going in there scared and I'm not going in there nervous, I'm going to go in there mad and to take what's mine.

"I think being so tall he fights like a big robot. I think with my style, my speed, my movement, I don't think he's fought anybody like me. It's going to be a whole different ball game. All the guys that he's fought, they usually run around from him. I don't think he's good going back. I'm going to bring the pressure, the speed, and the combinations to him.

"When I do pull out this win, everything is going to change. I'm going to bring the titles back to Mexico, it's going to mean everything. I'm going to be able to change my whole family's lives; my life and all my kids'. It's a win-win situation right now, but the main thing is to win the fight and make history."


Anthony Joshua's Quotes:


"Ruiz Jr is a different kind of challenge but one I embrace," said Joshua. "We have worked in the boxing gym week on week and whoever is put in front of me at Madison Square Garden on June 1 will be dispatched in style. The rent will be collected."


"Ruiz is a different kind of challenge but one I embrace," said Joshua, who has 22 wins from 22 fights.
