Joshua is finished after Ruiz humbling - Fury

Joshua is finished after Ruiz humbling - Fury

He hit me in the back of the head, scrambled my senses and the last knockdown was a touch of sleep but didn't hurt me.

Joshua was knocked down four times before referee Michael Griffin stopped the bout in the seventh round.

It's no secret that Ruiz Jr is a huge fan of the famous chocolate bar and is even known to consume them whilst training for a fight. Finished. Ask any top trainer who has been around the sport a lifetime. If they want me to go over there they have to give me $50 million.

Hearn triggered that rematch clause and hopes Joshua and Ruiz will face-off in November or December, with a location decided in the next fortnight.

Rivals Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder tweeted highly different statements towards Joshua following his loss.

The Briton, whose fight with Schwarz is the first of a multi-fight broadcast deal agreed with ESPN in February, is the only boxer Wilder has faced and not defeated.

Another four people are still missing some two weeks after the tragedy, the worst such incident in Hungary in 75 years. The cruise ship struck the tourist boat on 29 May as both vessels passed under a Bridge.


Frank Warren, Fury's British promoter, said in January that his man was bigger box-office than Joshua.

"AJ's the sick kind of guy where he said to me a couple of days ago, "you know maybe we should do it in the Garden [Madison Square Garden] again, ' I'm like - 'WHAT?' He went, 'well that's where it went wrong, so maybe that's where I should put it right". In what world could he ever beat me?

"Physically Joshua could out-train everyone", he added.

"People who don't understand boxing look at a fat man and think he can't fight".

Fury, now 30, beat Klitschko in 2015 for the titles he then lost due to a two-and-a-half year absence from the sport following mental health issues and a failed drug test.
