Andy Ruiz Jr says he’ll refuse to rematch Anthony Joshua in the UK – ‘I’m calling the shots’
Andy Ruiz Jr has declared that he is not willing to rematch Anthony Joshua in the UK.
The Mexican-American heavyweight claimed the WBA, IBF and WBO titles from the Brit in New York last month, and wants the return bout to take place in either of his two home countries.
Giving an update on the rematch with AJ, Ruiz told TMZ Sports: “I haven’t talked to him, but I’m pretty sure he’s training hard for the rematch and so am I.
“I want the rematch to be in Mexico or New York City again, Vegas, or here [in LA].”
When asked what happens if Joshua doesn’t agree to this, Ruiz replied: “It doesn’t matter because I’m the champion… I’m calling the shots… We’re the A-side.”………read more
