Andy Ruiz Jr shocked the world last week when he knocked out the British superstar and IBF, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion of the world in the seventh round to become the new king of the division at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Now Joshua will be looking to get his titles back and according to his promoter Eddie Hearn they have triggered the rematch clause and it will take place later this year in November or December.
Now the former heavyweight champion of the world and boxing legend George Foreman has offered to manage the Joshua.
“They’re gonna have to go back to the gym. I think he’ll be a greater fighter, Joshua now. If he goes back and gets his mind together. He’s gonna even be better, but right now he better learn to box and he better get a good manager. I’ll do it,” Foreman told TMZ. “He needs someone like me.”
“One punch, uh huh. One punch is not gonna change that, or one knockdown is not gonna change that. He’ll be back. He’s in the mix. And, probably he’ll be better,” Foreman explained. “I’d bet on him the next time ’cause now he’s gonna have something he should’ve had beforehand. Fear of being defeated. He didn’t have that.”
Who do you guys think wins in the rematch?
