Former Unified Heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua will be hoping to regain take back the world titles he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr. when he takes on the Mexican on the seventh of December in Saudi Arabia.

Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the world on June 1st, when he recovered from a third round knockdown, dropping Joshua twice in the same round and made it four knockdowns in the seventh round, stopping the then undefeated knockout artist to win the titles at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

However, ahead of their rematch, the former champion maintains that he is fully recovered from the mental effect of the loss and is presently 100% focused and training for the his rematch in Saudi Arabia.

“About three weeks. I used to sleep and I’d be thinking about it – I lost. But it’s cool. The blessing is that I’ve got solid people around me that have been with me since day one. They know me as AJ. That is a good thing,” Joshua said to Sky Sports.

“Even though I lost, it was only in my quiet times like going to bed or something like that, that I really thought about it. In a weird way it was kind of like a relief. I’m quite a strong-minded person. I find opportunity even in the worst type of cases. I don’t hide from any situation. You could fill out this arena and I could talk about all my losses in life, and I’m proud of them. I’m not going to shy away from them anyway.”

Anthony Joshua also maintains that he is not Nervous ahead of the rematch despite the views from experts, who believe that his career is at stake and will be destroyed by a second defeat, which definitely should put him in that state.

“No way. I’m never nervous. Look at the last fight I was about half asleep in the ring! I’m never nervous. I know I’m good. When you know you’re good at something you don’t make it the biggest thing in your life, the biggest thing in my life is actually training,” Joshua said.

“Fighting isn’t hard. Fighting and winning isn’t hard. It’s the training every day, having the right people around you every day. Honestly that is the biggest fight in my life. The winning is easy, that takes care of itself.”
