Andy Ruiz claims Anthony Joshua was ‘scared’ during fight against Oleksandr Usyk

Andy Ruiz Jr has described Anthony Joshua’s performance against Oleksandr Usyk as ‘hesitant’ and ‘scared’,

while questioning his tactical approach in the fight. 

‘It was probably the wrong strategy. He probably underestimated him. Kind of like how I did with Chris Arreola (in May where Ruiz won via unanimous decision). 

‘I think Anthony Joshua is still there, still strong. I kind of felt he was scared and holding back a little bit. Maybe it was the lefty style of Usyk and how he moves.’ 

Joshua is expected to take on Usyk in a rematch next year in a bid to win his world heavyweight titles back for a second time.
