Seven Days To Go: No phone for Joshua ahead Ruiz fight

I have a crush on Joshua - Nelson

 

Anthony Joshua is now limiting the time he spends on his mobile phone just to be focused ahead of his title fight against Andy Ruiz Jr on June 1 at Madison Square Garden.

“Ruiz Jr has got speed in both hands. So I have got to make sure I work on my reactions – staying off my phone to make sure that my eyes aren’t too tired.

“If you watch some of his fights a lot of his knockouts have come from combination punches,” Joshua told Behindthe Ropes.

“And I feel like it’s the punch you don’t see that hurts. And Ruiz Jr has got speed in both hands.

“So I have got to make sure I work on my reactions – staying off my phone to make sure that my eyes aren’t too tired because I’ve got to stay sharp with my eyes and how I react to these type of punches.”

Joshua is defending his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in New York.
