    the guy speaks of real knowledge...the interviewer. seems like to me AJ still doesn't understand that being big and strong will make him win the the rematch......the JAB!!!

        is it me or does Anthony Joshua come across as a bit passive aggressive in this. There's a glint in his eye when the interviewer credits ruiz.

          He admits he got caught twice, just twice, and it ended him in that fight. Ruiz said he saw an opening in AJ prior to the fight and he exploited it in the fight.

            More like the interviewer letting us know why Joshua lost the fight

              It's called 'victory disease'. AJ expected to win, because his mindset before fighting Ruiz was beyond that specific fight, in AJ's mind he'd already beaten Ruiz, he says this in interview. So he wasn't PRESENT on fight day and he lost.
              One fight at a time, one day at a time.

                Mentally he doesnt seem fired up...hes lacking the eye of the tiger (rocky)🤣🤣...hes hit a mental block, it's not Ruiz who's beaten him- its his own mentality that's beaten him. Hes playing with the big boys now and I think that realisation has finally dawned on him. To get back on top he has to overcome this or he will lose again unfortunately.

                    The gum-shield . Unfortunately AJ spat it out. Conscious or not, he was trying to gain himself time. It’s an old trick. He was taking big shots by that time. He had to deal with adversity and unfortunately he wasn’t fired up enough when it came. He didn’t have that mentality built up for Ruiz. The ref was probably justified stopping it. Do I think he can do it in the rematch? Yes! But so can Ruiz. A very durable boxing man with tons of experience and great combinations and hand speed. AJ has to fight his fight, not get drawn in close.
                    He has to grow as a fighter and very ruthlessly execute a game plan. I’m hopeful it can happen.🇬🇧

                        This story only works if Joshua beats Ruiz in the rematch - if he doesn't win this is a bit pathetic to be honest. Joshua lost because Ruiz is a very good fighter and Joshua underestimated him, that's why he lost.

                                I think he threw the first fight, but, or therefore, I hope that Ruiz really really wins the second.

                                  We need an interviewer who will ask the hard questions instead of helping him explain why he lost and making excuses for losing. Just admit Andy Ruiz beat you fair and square.

                                    He is mentally weak. Listen to him. He said, his life style is tiring. Is he tired of boxing? It shows a lack of passion. Weasle ism. He doesn't have that raw killer instinct. Ruiz is humble but exudes killer.

                                        He ducked the fight 100% and got paid a handsome backhander for his troubles, isnt that right AJ. You took a bribe ? .

                                          He lost because he can't take punches to the face and head. His chin is dodgy

                                            It is quite simple why you lost. Because you are OVER-HYPED and the product of your own brand's eventual downfall. 9/10 Ruiz beats you. FACT

                                                You have to break AJs ego. He is intelligent and likeable but even if he wins the rematch it will not remove doubts if he does not tear into Ruiz and batter him down. Stop the pitta patta of the jab and only use it when you intend to hurt your opponent. Boxing comes from the feet.. always the feet. Leverage comes from the feet. A tall guy has no leverage hitting downwards at a short guy. AJ must be told to crouch and uppercut or smash hooks as he forces up from his feet.

                                                  Joshua will not win on a rematch. He is immature as a person and this reflects in his boxing. Its simple... a TALL boxer must punch downwards at a shorter boxer... punching down is weak and has no leverage. Ruiz only has to step inside Joshuas long reach and hook his chin which he sticks out a mile. Klitchko was the same, wild punches and a chin sticking out. Basic boxing will win against Ruiz. Short jabs always straight and NEVER weak. You never poke out a jab just for the sake of it. If you throw a jab it must always be with 100% force. Joshua should crouch down like Tyson did and spring up with force from his feet while throwing a hook. Ruiz can not get inside this.

                                                    This is EGO - EGO no humility. ALL great boxers have humility. when you do you properly criticise yourself then deal with the flaws. He is thinking Ruiz will let him win just because his ego says so. A bit like the England world cup squad 1966, ever since England felt the had the right to win thereafter, no respect for smaller countries having great soccer teams. Joshua is doing this. If I was his trainer I would concentrate on his psychology and thrash his ego. Hence he keeps repeating "I am capable I should have won" NO NO NO you have no RIGHT to win. You must respect your opponent has the ability and up your own game. I knew from the start h would lose against Ruiz. It is no good talking about "Jab upstairs and downstairs" This is not about punches thrown this is about brains controlling strategy. This guy saying the most dramatic round in the history of boxing???!!! so this props up Joshuas ego and does nothing for his ability. He is still speaking of Ruiz as a nothing fighter as if he had the right NOT to be beaten. The fact is ruiz has a brilliant history of powerful fights, KOing good fighters. Joshua saw a guy with a belly and his ego, his loving at looking at himself in a mirror, took over. The fact is Ruiz is very good and Joshua is not good enough.

                                                        He lost because he wasn't good enough and he didn't even look like a real fighter after he'd been fed some leather by Ruiz ! Will not surprise me if he calls it a day before too long .However he's a world champ when it comes to excuses ! Looks like a lost soul to me .

But i know skinny dudes thats not in shape. Ruiz speed was faster and punches were harder then Joshua. He need to accept the truth!!!!

Lewis Took Rahman lightly because Rahman like Ruiz is a mediocre opponent. But they both forgot that just about every heavyweight can punch, so that punching power is the equalizer.

All that training to just quit cuz your body wasn’t feeling it is dumb cuz that literally all he Say he does, train. 🤦‍♂️ he needs to replace his trainers. It’s just crazy that they keep letting him believe WHY he thinks he lost. Gotta be real with him cuz if it was Andy Ruiz that lost the way aj did, everyone would say they knew he would lose cuz of how he looks. Point is they gotta stop training him to look the part and really go in that gym and overly exhaust yourself with people that can really box and last forever!

You underestimated the underdog because of his appearance and you lost. Defending a title should be more of a motivation; someone’s tryna take your crown from you and they did.
