Reliving your darkest moments is never easy, but sometime we must study history to avoid repeating it. This is the backdrop to Anthony Joshua sitting down with Savage Dan for JD Sports to watch back footage from his upset defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr, who relieved AJ of his unified world heavyweight titles in June.


It was a crushing setback for the Watford man on what was his US debut, as Ruiz rose from the canvas early to punish and ultimately beat Joshua into submission. The fast-handed Mexican-American seemed to get his tactics spot on, yet rumours swirled that something must have been wrong with the champion ahead of this contest.


Joshua rules out any issues in training camp but, in sitting down with Savage Dan and studying the reverse, he is able to pick out some parts of his performance with which he remains unhappy, before looking ahead to the rematch later this year.
