Joshua vs Ruiz 2: What have the fighters said?

Anthony Joshua: “It’s more myself I have to change. I am looking at myself in the mirror and saying I know I’m better than that.

“Andy is still the same person. He will come game and I’ve got to change some of my bits and bobs. ​

“I was 50 per cent of the way towards getting a win, just got caught.​”

Andy Ruiz Jr: “I don’t think he’s going to try, how can I say this, go head-to-head with me. But if he does, even better.”
