Andy Ruiz Jnr claims to be better equipped this time around to take on Joshua

WBO, IBF and WBA Heavyweight Champion of the World Andy Ruiz Jnr says he is better equipped for his fight against Anthony Joshua because this time he has more time for preparations.

Speaking in an interview, Ruiz says he has quality sparring partners this time around who are of the similar stature as Joshua.

He says the week has mostly been about studying Joshua, working hard and getting ready for war again.

Ruiz says Joshua did get him with a perfect right hand in the first fight that could have knocked anybody out but the will to win helped him get back up.

He says he feels that Joshua got him with a lucky shot because he got lazy and over confident when Joshua got him with the upper cut.

Ruiz adds he knows Joshua is trying to be light enough so he can move around quickly in the ring but its still unclear whether he will have the same power.

Mexican-American Ruiz shocked the boxing world in June, when he inflicted Joshua's first loss, knocking him out at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The boxing program in Saudi Arabia will start at 6am next Sunday.
