I won’t makes excuses for the loss but I will learn from them, says Anthony Joshua

IF I had beaten Andy Ruiz Jnr, if I had finished him off in the third round, people would be saying nothing went wrong. That wasn’t how it worked out but I’m not going to blame anything or anyone else for what happened.

I lost, Andy Ruiz was the better man and I have to take that on the chin and roll with the punches. I don’t want to say something went wrong when nothing went wrong. I’ve got a great team around me.

People have suggested I should have a warm-up fight before Ruiz. But what’s a warm-up fight? I don’t fight warm-up fights. For me, that would be stupid.
