ANTHONY JOSHUA WANTS TO GET BOXING PASSION BACK AHEAD OF ANDY RUIZ JR REMATCH
Anthony Joshua lost his WBA, IBF and WBO world titles after a shock defeat by Andy Ruiz on June 1.
The loss was the first professional loss of Joshua’s career and he is very desperate to prove it was but a fluke.
Anthony Joshua went on to say he is determined to get his “passion” back for boxing ahead of his rematch with Ruiz later in the year.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he had the following to say:
“I feel strong enough and I feel I can correct my wrongs, I need to be around as many boxing people as possible because right now I need to soak in the experience and knowledge – and get that passion back.”
Even though Ruiz has insisted he does not want to fight in the UK, Joshua has said it really does not matter where the fight takes place but he would love it in the UK.
“It doesn’t matter to me where it is, I would love it to be in Cardiff but it’s going to be on neutral ground, Ruiz is the champ so he will make some calls in that situation but I’m going to battle for it to be in the UK because it’s my stomping ground…“, said Joshua.
