- Andy Ruiz believes he will defeat Joshua again when they meet on Saturday for rematch in Saudi Arabia
- The Mexican will defend his heavyweight belts against the British-Nigerian boxer who he beat in June
- Ruiz says he wants his opponent to be mad in the ring so that he can take chances on his aggression
Heavyweight champion, Andy Ruiz, says he wants Anthony Joshua to be "mad in the ring" when both meet for a rematch bout in Saudi Arabia.
The Mexican star will be up against the Briton this Saturday, December 7, in the second showdown to hold in 15,000 capacity Riyadh stadium.
Ruiz, who stunned Joshua in June at Madison Park in New York with a seventh minute knock-out, said he wants his opponent to show more aggression so that he can take chances on his aggression.
“I want him to be mad and swinging in the ring," Ruiz Jr said.
"I want him to have that attitude because I will be calm and know exactly what we need to do.
“I don’t know if I am his bogeyman, I think his style was just perfect for me and I think it will be the same.
The 30-year-old said he knew Joshua would try to change tactic but he is not worried because he will perfect his work in the ring and come out victorious again.
“I think he will box around nicely for four or five rounds until I take the pressure to him, start hitting his body and mixing it up.
“I did say he was not good enough to avoid me for the full 12 rounds, on the backfoot, we have been working on this for a round three months now and I know, whatever he brings, we will be ready for it," the chubby fighter said.
Meanwhile, Ruiz has revealed that he bought cars, jewelries and mansion with the money he got from his victory over Joshua in June.
The Mexican scoped away a staggering £5 million after he deposed Joshua of his heavyweight champion, carting away his WBA, WBO and IBF belts.
He will pocket $13 million after the rematch in Saudi Arabia, with the Briton getting a whopping $85 million as spoil from the fight.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Anthony Joshua dished out a final warning to Andy Ruiz ahead of their rematch showdown to hold in Saudi Arabia.
The British-Nigerian born pugilist will have a golden chance of proving Ruiz's victory over him in June was a fluke and similarly reclaim his belts when he faces the heavyweight champion on December 7.
