Martial Shares Brutal Injury Pictures After Man Utd Win Vs Man City / Anthony Joshua Vs Andy Ruiz Jr. II - Rematch (Live Updates) / Deontay Wilder Sends Scathing Message To Anthony Joshua After Andy Ruiz Defeat (2) (3) (4)
|Deontay Wilder Gives Scathing Assessment Of Anthony Joshua’s Win Vs. Andy Ruiz J by classicfrank4u(m): 12:53pm On Dec 08, 2019|
Anthony Joshua silenced his critics in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night, outclassing Andy Ruiz Jr to regain his belts.
The 30-year-old is heavyweight champion of the world once more, bouncing back in style following his defeat to the same opponent back in June.
Joshua wasn’t able to add another knockout to his CV but he did seal a convincing unanimous points victory over the Mexican, who has since admitted that he put on too much weight ahead of the fight.
It’s not clear at this stage who Joshua will fight next, although the WBO announced in the aftermath of Saturday’s bout that the Brit must make a title defence against Oleksandr Usyk within 180 days.
Kubrat Pulev is another potential next opponent for AJ, while a third fight with Ruiz isn’t being ruled out either.
But everybody wants to see Joshua eventually fight either Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury.
And Wilder has made sure that he’s in Joshua’s head today by criticising the newly-crowned heavyweight champion’s performance in Diriyah.
The WBC champ has accused Joshua of running ‘around the ring’ and believes he won by using the ‘survival’ tactics of Wladimir Klitschko.
"Joshua did what he had to do to get the win,” the American told The Athletic. “He ran around the ring and was on his bike all day.
"Basically, he had Klitschko in the camp and he was a lot like Klitschko: that jab-grab-hold method. That's all he did tonight.”
Wilder continued: "You want to dominate guys, man. Maybe I'm just too rough, too hardcore and too much of a dream for this time and era, maybe the world wants that nice s**t... my mentality is so different from these other fighters.
"But when I think of myself as a champion... you want to come out there and whoop his a*s.
"I'm not coming in, after losing to this guy, to just dance and grab and jab and hold.
"I'm going to show the world and convince them I am the very best and that no-one is close to me, especially with what's going on in the division right now. It's a time of proving who is the best.
"Joshua had many times he could've gone for the finish after he landed the right hand.
When you land the right hand, you've tackled the distance. When you land that punch, you know you're in exact position for the second time around.
"But he was so hesitant... Joshua's mentality was to survive. The Klitschko method.
"The difference is my mentality is that of a beast, a warrior, a king, an emperor -- all those things. If he calls himself a king, he's just on the nicer side of it.
"This is a brutal sport and that's how I treat it. I ain't showing no love for anybody in that ring."
Wow. Don’t hold back, Deontay, tell us how you really feel!
He clearly believes that he would have got the knockout if he was in Joshua’s shoes on Saturday.
Wilder isn’t the only person to accuse Joshua of playing it too safe against Ruiz.
His latest display has been compared to a Floyd Mayweather performance by many - but not everyone uses this comparison favourably.
That said, Joshua got the job done and surely deserves credit for producing such a convincing win when everything was on the line.
Wilder also criticised Ruiz Jr, adding, per talkSPORT: “People say I have no skills, but my intellect is high enough to know if I’d been in a situation like [Ruiz Jr] and something’s not working, you’ve got to change up my style.
“I’m smart enough to know, cut the f***ing ring off.
“Once you cut the ring off, you put Joshua in a corner and you can have your way with him by hitting him the way you did the first time
“To be in boxing that long and not know how to cut the ring off? If he knew, he didn’t do it, or he didn’t have the intellect. I’m a little upset with him.”
“Ruiz said he was doing great, not letting this moment get to him, but in the end you hear him saying he ate too much and should’ve trained harder… Like, what the f***?
“What do you mean you ate too much and could’ve trained harder?
“I take this s*** seriously. I don’t know what their mentality is, but I didn’t become champion of the world just to say, ‘Put me in the record books. At least I can say I was a champion. They can never take that away from me.’
“F*** that s***. I’m here for legacy. Long live the king. That’s my mentality, and America should love a world champion like me.”

People would analyze your victories judgementally and criticize you badly when you fail. The dude lost, the whole world was unsettled. Dude won, they begin sermonizing
Thanks for giving Joshua these nuggets. I'm sire he's trainer would attend to the wise comments and help him improve and work on his psyche. In the meantime, all boxers in the history that talked tough all lost at some point. Wilder, I'm waiting on yours. And the undelightful excuses you'll mumble up, gab

This guy’s a good & aggressive boxer but he always make it sound like he can’t even lose a fight at all. Nobody be champion forever. I don’t Know much about wrestling but judging with the way Ruiz looks shouldn’t he have been knocked out before the 12th round? Must Joshua allow the fight linger on to such rounds? Maybe Joshua is only over hyped or it was intentional to give the people a show

this statement shows a calculative and smart boxer!
this wilder guy is a confirmed killer boxer!
on no account should AJ agree to face this killer!
if AJ for any reason make the mistake of facing wilder, it will not only be the end of his career, but it will mean life deformation - this wilder will deform AJ in the ring.

Exactly my thought too.. He had the KO opportunity multiple times but he decided to play safe all through... If he fight this way with a very calculative opponent, he will definitely loose out.. An is far better than Ruiz, Ruiz is more dangerous but no tactics.. Congratulations Aj

Wilder talks too much. AJ is humble in defeat and victory. But why is Wilder changing mouth up and down. You said Ruiz will KO AJ faster than he did the first time they met in the rematch. AJ upped his game and changed tactics and won, now you come here saying he was running around the ring.
You're just jealous of AJ. AJ worked hard and worked his way up to the top.Where were you when AJ risked his life to fight established fighters like Whyte, Parker, Klitschko, Takam etc early in his career?
You were the one ducking. You were made an offer, you said the pay cheque was too small. You have only 1 belt whereas he has FOUR. You need him more than he needs you. I don't think you can even survive Ruiz. To me, you've only fought 2 or 3 boxers in your entire career and we know how the fights went. I know you have the power but this sports goes beyond power. Fight the likes of Whyte, Parker and Ruiz first, then we can take you seriously.
