Andy Ruiz Jr – ‘I was overweight and I’m sorry’

Andy Ruiz Jr talks to the media after losing to Anthony Joshua and admits he was far too heavy because he didn't train properly

ANDY RUIZ JR sat down in front of the press following his lopsided points loss to Anthony Joshua and admitted he had come in too heavy. He hit the scales at 283lbs which was 15lbs more than he weighed when he halted Joshua in June.

“I’m sorry, Manny,” he said to his trainer, Manny Robles. “I’m sorry to my dad too. They told me I was too heavy. I think the partying got the best of me.

Robles accepted the apology. He insisted he will stick by a fighter who has caused frustration to former trainers Freddie Roach and Abel Sanchez in the past.
