Nigerian born British boxer, Anthony Joshua has admitted to have suffered heavily after shock defeat by Andy Ruiz on June 1, 2019 at Madison Square Garden,New York City.
The boxer had lost his IBF, WBA and WBO titles after he was defeated by Ruiz Jr in the seventh-round to mark the British/Nigerian boxer first professional loss.
Joshua admitted that he suffered heavily after their first fight.
I think I had to grieve and ask myself all the questions you would expect. People say ‘you lost’, I call it a blip. ‘I can’t wait to get in there and fight him. Every time I have fought a champion I have risen to the occasion.’
Joshua also said he might change his approach in order to be more proactive at the start of fights.
I need to start taking this approach to my fights where I’m a bit more lively. I know I’m capable of it. There is too much at stake’. ‘If I go in there where I’m switched on, a time like the Ruiz fight where I am so relaxed, that might be the difference.Anthony Joshua – jalabase.com
