Anthony Joshua learns Mexican boxing style with new partner ahead of Ruiz rematch

Anthony Joshua is now focusing on sharpening his skills with new sparring partner, Elvis Garcia, after reportedly dropping  his other sparring partners ahead of this weekend’s rematch  match against Andy Ruiz Jr  in Saudi Arabia

The boxing world was left stunned as the Brit was dropped four times by less-fancied Ruiz Jr on the way to a shock seventh-round stoppage loss. It meant he lost his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight world titles.

Timothy Moten who has been working with AJ in camp, revealed that Joshua has stepped things up in his training – to devastating effect.. Moten also interestingly revealed that Joshua has been sparring another Mexican heavyweight in the hope of being prepared for the bombs that Ruiz Jr will inevitably try and land come December 7

Speaking to MailOnline, the 27-year-old: : “There’s always a point in every Andy Ruiz fight where he reverts to that Mexican background and he is ready to bang, we saw that with Anthony Joshua in the first fight.“When Joshua floored him, he was hurt and that Mexican style came out. Joshua has been sparring a Mexican heavyweight, who is exactly the same as Ruiz”

“There have been guys here, I don’t want to say any names, but I’ve seen guys come into camp, get blown away and get sent home that same week.

“He’s dropped a few of his sparring partners and he’s rocked a lot. Joshua is by far the hardest hitter I’ve been in the ring with.”
