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

 

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.
