ANTHONY JOSHUA believes he must beat the “best heavyweight out there” to regain his world titles from Andy Ruiz Jr.

Joshua surrendered his IBF, WBA and WBO belts to the Mexican following one of the biggest shocks in boxing history on his American debut in New York in June.

The 29-year-old Briton has a swift chance to avenge the first loss of his professional career when the pair meet for a hotly-anticipated rematch on December 7 in Saudi Arabia.
