Speaking with Sky Sports after his loss to Joshua, Ruiz said: “It was his night. I didn’t prepare how I should have.
“I gained too much weight. I don’t want to give excuses, he won. He boxed me around. If we do a third fight you best believe I’m going to get in shape. I’ll be in the best shape of my life.
“I thought I was going to feel stronger. Next fight I’m going to get more prepared. I tried to train myself for this.
“I was chasing him too much. I was hesitating too much.”
