Wilder backs Ruiz to beat Joshua again

DEONTAY Wilder has revealed that he is backing Andy Ruiz Jr to beat Anthony Joshua for a second time. The Mexican is slimmer just shy of eight weeks before he takes on Joshua for in a world heavyweight title fight in Saudi Arabia in December.

A much stockier Ruiz stopped a sluggish Joshua at Madison Square Garden in June and Wilder thinks he now has that winning mentality.

Asked whether he is backing the 30-year-old, the WBC title holder told Sky Sports: “I am. Ruiz Jr has all the motivation and confidence that he needs from the first fight.

“I don’t think he is one to dwell after obtaining a little taste of success. This is just the beginning, especially when you become a champion.”
