Derek Chisora believes Anthony Joshua lost to Andy Ruiz Jr because of ‘Latinos, chicas and the ladies.’

Ruiz Jr is the only man to have beaten Joshua in a professional ring. Ruiz dropped the Brit four times, as he surrendered world titles in June.

Joshua is in the midst of his 12-week training camp and is working towards avenging his shock defeat in the money-spinning December 7 rematch with Ruiz in Saudi Arabia.

“The only problem – Joshua trained, it’s only he trained in Miami, you know,”  Chisora told Seconds Out. “He saw the Latinos, the chicas, the ladies. But this game we’re in, it’s how you come back is the most important thing. I’m going to help him, not yet, he’s [Joshua] asked me and I’ve told him I want to come down. I’ve said I want to come around with him but the schedules not been planned for one and another.”
