Anthony Joshua Called Out By Former Opponent: “Fight Somebody Who Wants To Win”

Anthony Joshua has been urged to ‘fight somebody who wants to win’ following a domination of Otto Wallin this month.

Joshua quickly got to Wallin in his third and final fight of 2023 on the Day of Reckoning card. Across the first five rounds he inflicted sufficient damage – without taking any real shots himself – that the Swede’s corner pulled him out.

Still, former opponent Andy Ruiz Jr was not impressed. The one time unified champion fought Joshua twice, first winning with a huge upset knockout at Madison Square Garden in June 2019 before losing the belts in December the same year across 12 rounds.

Speaking to Fight Hub TV, Ruiz Jr was asked what he made of ‘AJ’s latest fight and claimed the opponent didn’t really come to win.

He was asked to confirm that he would like to fight Joshua for a third time.




Of all the men Parker could fight next, Ruiz seems high on the list in what would be a rematch of their 2016 world title fight which saw Parker come out victorious.
