IF anybody knows the perks of being a little on the heavy side it’s Andy Ruiz Jnr, the current WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion of the world.

The portly but powerful Mexican-American combines the physique of a heavyweight with the speed of a middleweight and used both to shock the world in June, when stopping Anthony Joshua inside seven rounds at Madison Square Garden, New York.

Now, as he prepares to grant Joshua a rematch, Ruiz is questioning whether Joshua’s slimmed down appearance will be a help or a hindrance on the night.
