Ahead of his Saudi rematch with conqueror Andy Ruiz Jr, Anthony Joshua has produced a sketch of his ’arch nemesis’
Heavyweight boxing star Anthony Joshua has sharpened the knives in his rivalry with Andy Ruiz Jr after drawing an unflattering portrayal of the Mexican and naming him his “arch nemesis”.
Taking time away from his training camp in Sheffield with trainer Rob McCracken, Joshua seemed in a relaxed mood as he spoke to JD Sports.
But, after sketching the unbecoming image of the current heavyweight world champion, the conversation took a heated turn as Joshua said: “So here we have – what do you call them – my arch nemesis.”
The boxer then revealed an illustration of his next opponent, who shocked the boxing world by beating ‘AJ’ back in June, before going on to say: “This is a guy called Ruiz, who I’m fighting soon – before this year is out – and my journey to becoming two-time heavyweight champion.
“The only reason why this guy is the arch nemesis is because there is no other focus.”
In some exclusive access for JD recently, the Watford-born boxer was spotted looking leaner in his training camp, confirming his own words that he is fully focused on making sure he becomes two-time world champion.
Joshua will take on Ruiz in Diriyah on December 7th.
