Anthony Joshua believes he’ll be up against the best fighter in the world when he chooses Andy Ruiz Jr in his December rematch using all the heavyweight world champion.
Ruiz, who had been born in the United States but struggles for Mexico, caused a Significant shock in June when he passed a primary defeat for Joshua to win the WBA, IBF and WBO implants at New York.
In the next section of a trilogy of media conferences to foster the rematch from Saudi Arabia, Britain’s Joshua told colleagues in London: “My battles would be the elite of the elite and are high in this harvest. That tiny bit of inspiration of combating somebody with the skill-set and is your winner.
“It is not like I am fighting somebody as a stepping stone into some winner. We can not miss Andy and his ability as well as his achievement in the ring because I am fighting the finest out there at the moment.
He talked about his desire to go back to the peak of the game, including: “Once I have my goal of life, I could do anything and motivation is going to be the same.
“Place me on the road to clean off off the walls; I wish to be certain my graffiti cleanup is far better than yours, and that is only my goal in life.
“So motivation is not just about boxing.
“I have to make a few changes in my life today to fix and align them so that I align my celebrities accordingly, come December 7 I am shooting straight and that I understand where I am heading.
“And that is towards these names that at the moment are simply out of reach, but sooner or later I will have the ability to touch them .”
The place for December’s rematch is contentious.
Saudi rulers have used the game as a tool to attempt to enhance their global image.
In February they hosted a primary European Tour golf occasion while the planet’s most gruelling motorsports race, the Dakar Rally, will be held at the nation in 2020.
