We’re only three months away from the year’s most anticipated fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr, yet it would probably be fair to say that punters are still a bit unsure as to who they should put their money on. Understandably, some are still recovering from having their fingers burned in New York, while others can’t quite find the bravery needed to put their money on Ruiz Jr.
That’s what makes this such an intriguing bout and one that will undoubtedly bring the world of boxing to a standstill when it happens. Despite all the uncertainty around the clash and even after Ruiz Jr was crowned heavyweight champion in June, the expert opinion would be to back the 29-year-old Joshua to right the wrongs of Madison Square Garden by knocking his Mexican-American opponent out.
While that may get a few eyebrows raised, it isn’t really a scenario that is farfetched at all. On paper, there is only one winner and that is the Watford-born Anthony Joshua.
