If I beat him for the second time, he should take a break from boxing – Andy Ruiz Jnr tells Anthony Joshua ahead of their rematch

Andy Ruiz Jnr has told Anthony Joshua to quickly embark on a break from boxing if he loses to him for the second time.

Back in June, Joshua lost his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in a shock defeat to Ruiz Jr back at Madison Square Garden. The Mexican boxer defeated Joshua in the seventh round.

If I beat him for the second time, he should take a break from boxing - Andy Ruiz Jnr tells Anthony Joshua ahead of their rematch

With the pair getting ready to have a huge rematch that will take place in Saudi Arabia in December, Andy Ruiz Jnr has advised Joshua to go on a quick break if he fails to regain his world titles.

I think he should take a little break if I beat him,’ Ruiz Jr told Sky Sports.

‘Let him recuperate, but one or two losses are not going to make a difference. He’s still a warrior, he’s still a great fighter, and I’m sure he’ll bounce back.’

He said: ‘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.’
