- Andy Ruiz said he told Anthony Joshua his knockout was a "punch from God"
- The Mexican stunned the world when he dethroned the British fighter in June 2018
- The 30-year-old will defend his heavyweight belts when he meets Joshua again in Saudi Arabia
Andy Ruiz has made a stunning revelation ahead of his epoch-making rematch bout with Anthony Joshua slated for December in Saudi Arabia.
The Mexican champion had met for a face off press conference with Joshua in September donning a big Mexican hat and chewing some words at the British born pugilist.
Ahead of his rematch, the world champion has opened more lids on what transpired between him and Joshua at the press conference.
He said he told the Briton that his seventh round knockout blow was a ‘punch from God’ and he should expect another.
“I said ‘it was a punch from God. I had been praying and wishing for this opportunity my whole life,'' the 30-year-old Mexican said.
"And I took advantage of it,” Ruiz Jr concluded.
Ruiz stunned the boxing world in June 2018 after deposing the British-Nigerian pugilist of his WBA, IBF & WBO championship in a fight he came as an "over-weight" underdog.
Recently the Mexican proved to the world that he was up to the champion tag after he was seen helping a stranded driver push a car in what has been described as a show of strength.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Anthony Joshua courted another criticism to himself with boxing legend Mike Tyson positing the British-Nigerian pugilist lacked knowledge of his potentials.
Tyson's comment came barely less than two months to his much anticipated fight against the Mexican champion Ruiz Jr slated for Saudi Arabia.
