ANTHONY JOSHUA has become a two-time world heavyweight champion.
The Watford ace downed Andy Ruiz by a wide points decision in Saudi Arabia to win back his WBA, WBO and IBF title belts.
And Joshua now wants a 2020 clash against either WBC champ Deontay Wilder or fellow Brit Tyson Fury.
ANDY RUIZ JR’S dad has claimed the defeated world champion was too busy “throwing parties” to train.
Anthony Joshua totally out-classed Ruiz in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night, winning back his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in a convincing points victory.
The Mexican looked totally out of condition as 30-year-old Brit Joshua out-boxed him in Riyadh.
And Ruiz Jr’s father has blasted his son for coming into the fight overweight.
He admitted his son did not listen to either him or his trainer – and Ruiz Sr believes that the poor preparation played a major part.
Ruiz Jr, 30, ballooned up to 20st 3lbs (283lbs), 15lbs heavier than the first fight with Joshua back in June, when he beat the Brit in seven stunning rounds.
Ruiz Sr said that he told his son “months ago” that he was not going to be good at the weight and revealed that he was not training correctly.
He said Ruiz Jr was getting carried away with buying cars and “throwing parties.”
Ruiz Sr told Boxing Social: “Andy thought he was going to do good at the weight in the fight. I told him a month ago that ‘you’re not going to do good at the weight’.
“’It’s going to be too hard, because you’re going to be tired, and you’re not going to have the movement’. He came overweight, that was the problem.
“It was too much weight for his body. He weighed 283. Plus after he eats, he was almost 290-something.
“There was no way he was going to do something good, so now he’s learned his lesson and now he’s going to come back.
“All the fights that he’s done in his career, he was 255, 257, 246. The last time he fought, he was at 268, and he felt comfortable, but I told him, ‘You have to lose weight’, but at that time, we didn’t have enough time to lose weight.
“That’s why he fought at that weight.” Reddit Boxing stream
