Joshua knocks down sparring partners ahead Ruiz rematch

Anthony Joshua has been knocking down his sparring partners, and he’s sent several of them home after destroying them, according to American Timothy Moten.

Moten is one of many sparring partners that were brought to train with the former IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion ahead of Andy ruiz rematch this Saturday, December 7 in Saudi Arabia.

The 5’11”, 270+ lb Moten didn’t reveal who Joshua has been sparring besides himself, but it appears that he’s been fighting short, stocky fighters with a similar build as Ruiz Jr.

Moten isn’t saying anything about reports that Joshua is ALSO getting worked over by certain sparring partners in camp. This is what happened last time Joshua prepared for Ruiz last June, and we all know how that fight went.

‘There have been guys here, I don’t want to say any names, but I’ve seen guys come into camp, get blown away and get sent home that same week,’ Moten said to the Dailymail.

“He’s dropped a few of his sparring partners and he’s rocked a lot. Joshua is by far the hardest hitter I’ve been in the ring with. His mentality is to destroy. He is like a focused, caged lion and when the time is right, he will unleash,” said Moten.
