Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua 2: Joshua’s Open Media Workout

Anthony Joshua holds an open workout ahead of his title fight with Andy Ruiz Jr. this Saturday.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

It’s repeat or revenge this Saturday for former unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Joshua, 30, is coming off a disastrous U.S. debut over the summer where he was expected to officially announce his arrival. Instead Andy Ruiz Jr. beat him up in front of a Madison Square Garden crowd that left Joshua to do some real soul searching.

Well, Joshua has done that and decided he wants to come back for more, and he’ll get his chance — this time will a full training camp specifically designed for Ruiz. There will be no excuses to be had this time around (presumably), so Joshua will just need to get in the ring and handle his business.

And with Joshua getting ready to display his new form, he attends an open media workout in Saudi Arabia where the two heavyweights will meet for a second time. Joshua has fielded a lot of questions about his slimmer build this time around, but he’s largely laughed off those questions but saying he’s just been training hard and not worrying so much about his physique.

Catch some footage of Joshua shadowboxing above as he tries to recapture three major world titles this weekend.
