“I’ll beat Andy next time,” he added. “You’ll be asking me a whole heap of different questions on December 8th.”
Anthony Joshua will not be happy with his boxing legacy should he fail to become a world champion once again.
In one of the biggest upsets in the sport’s history, the 30-year-old lost his WBA, IBF & WBO world heavyweight titles when he was dropped and stopped by underdog Andy Ruiz Jr in June.
The pair are set for their rematch in Saudi Arabia in just over two weeks’ time on 7 December and regaining the belts he lost in Madison Square Garden is the only thing on the British heavyweight’s mind.
“I don’t think I would be content if I don’t win the titles,” Joshua told the Media. “For me as a man it means more than anything.”
Asked whether his legacy hinges on the result of the rematch with Ruiz, AJ said: “When it’s all said and done and I hang up my gloves, that’s when we can have the debate about legacy.”
Already a one-time world heavyweight champion, Joshua said he wouldn’t be content ending his career there, wanting to reclaim his titles.
