If Anthony Joshua appears like he would not have a care on the earth proper now, nicely, it is as a result of he would not. On Saturday, June 1, he’ll try and defend his WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight world titles in opposition to challenger Andy Ruiz. Joshua, the large favourite is preventing Ruiz, who’s a substitute for the unique challenger, Jarrell Miller. Ruiz took this combat on comparatively quick discover for a combat of this magnitude after Miller examined constructive for banned substances.
Joshua, the undefeated heavyweight champion has an ideal document of 22-0 (21KOs). Ruiz’s solely blemish was in 2016 when he misplaced a majority resolution to Joseph Parker for the vacant WBO heavyweight title in Parker’s fatherland of New Zealand. Since then Ruiz 31-1 (21KOs) has gained three fights whereas ready to get one other shot on the world title.
DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
Andy Ruiz may appear to be the man subsequent door, not the one which goes to the health club. The opposite one, that appears like he performs a number of Fortnite. Nonetheless, Ruiz can combat. He’s actually deserving of his world title problem and really nicely might need the quickest fingers and finest footwork within the heavyweight division at this time.
Even the one four-time heavyweight champion in historical past, Evander Holyfield mentioned Ruiz is simply too fast and that he would not wish to combat him.
With that being mentioned, whereas I give Ruiz an opportunity of getting a good displaying within the early rounds, I really feel that Joshua goes to be seeking to make an announcement in his American debut, on the mecca of boxing, Madison Sq. Backyard no much less. Joshua will discover his distance and ultimately discover Ruiz’s timing. As soon as that occurs, the larger and stronger Joshua solely wants one punch to finish the competition. As I expressed in my Ultimate Bettor’s Guide for this combat, I see Joshua stopping Ruiz in both rounds 5, 6 or 9, however undoubtedly profitable by knockout, whether or not by the depend or the referee stopping the combat.
