WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder thinks Andy Ruiz will beat Anthony Joshua for the second time.
Joshua, who was knocked down by Mexican boxer on June 1st at Madison Square Garden, is preparing for a rematch against Ruiz Jr.
“It is not over for Anthony. Just because you lose, it doesn’t mean it’s over,” Wilder exclusively spoke to Sky Sports (via boxingscene)
“Even if he loses the rematch, which I feel he will. I don’t think he knows how he lost. He was knocked down four times. He gave up, in my opinion.” he added.
Joshua will try to regain his IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO titles, as the second fight is expected to happen in Cardiff on December 14th
“I wasn’t surprised (for Joshua’s defeat),” Wilder continued.
“I was happy for Andy, for where the guy came from. Like a lot of us fighters, he was looking for the lottery tickets.
“He said: ‘mama, we ain’t got to struggle any more’. That touched me because we all come from some type of place. We are all trying to support our families. We are all looking for the meal ticket.” Deontay concluded.
