Anthony Joshua Confident Of Victory
Anthony Joshua has declared that he is not afraid of losing the heavyweight rematch between himself and Andy Ruiz (Jnr).
Joshua, who admitted that he believes the fight will be very intense, however, expressed confidence of defeating Ruiz during Saturday’s rematch.
He made the declaration on Wednesday during a press conference before their rematch in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
The fight is expected to start at 10pm GMT.
“I didn’t lose heart or fire in my belly,” Joshua said about losing to Ruiz Jr earlier this year. “There is no fear in my heart, my eyes or my mind.
“I didn’t lose any commitment.
“There was a big change and a big shift in the division so it definitely feels different. I turn this stuff into a positive otherwise it will eat you up, and will fold into a way that I don’t want it to go.
“I had to own the situation and make it work for me.
“You always need a challenger’s mind-set. I said that with the belts around my waist.
“Hungry, determined, focused on the goal.
“Will it be a special moment (if he wins)? No because I know I belong there. When I regain the belts I will keep cool, and keep a challenger’s mind-set and move onto the next target.”
