“Andy Ruiz ruined Anthony Joshua’s career,” explains Timothy Bradley

Andy Ruiz Anthony Joshua Tim Bradley

Former professional boxer Timothy bradley think that the defeat you suffered Anthony Joshua at the hands of Andy ruiz In 2019, it simply weakened his mind, and it ruined his boxing career.

“Success, that weakens (the mind), and I think that in the fight of Andy Ruiz, that ruined it Anthony Joshua)”, said Bradley in interview for Fight Hype. “I think that (defeat with Ruiz) ruined his confidence, I think that also made him afraid of getting hit. He is shy about the exchange, he does not want to throw blows because he is afraid of being hit ”.

Bradley made it clear that due to this situation, he was not seen AJ land good shots in his last fight against the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.

“That’s why you didn’t see him throw (blows),” he said. Bradley. “Usyk He’s a heavyweight kid, but he’s got some punch to his punches, but (Joshua) is the biggest guy, you need to act like the biggest guy. It’s almost like he’s a big guy physically, but with the mentality of a small weight. You need to change that and I think the only way is to have a conversation with yourself. That is the only way to fix it. You have to talk to yourself and ask yourself ‘how do you want to be remembered? Where is the guy that you fought with Klitschko? Where is that guy? If you bring back that guy (the Joshua who beat Klitschko), you’ll beat a guy like Usyk“.

Joshua and his problems in the face of losses

Timothy bradley noted that Joshua has shown a conformist attitude when losing again, something that does not happen often with boxers. AND Bradley see a contrast between the attitude of Joshua and of Tyson fury.

Joshua did not come to fight (against Usyk) ”, He says Bradley. “It is a different mentality, his mentality is very different from that of Tyson fury. Joshua seems fine, seems comfortable losing a fight. Show class (on losses) or whatever you want to call it. It is difficult to train when you have the whole world at your feet. It’s hard to train and stay focused and stay dedicated and have that hunger and that desire. “

What do you think about a hypothetical fight between Tyson Fury and Usyk

Timothy time was also given to comment on a possible fight between the reigning heavyweight champions, Tyson fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

“I think it’s a good fight. I believe that Tyson fury could be too big for Usyk. Usyk he’s a very good technical boxer, just like Tyson fury. Tyson fury it can push forward, it can box back, it is very long, it has a reach of 85 inches, it can recharge on Usyk. There is much you can do, “he argued. Bradley. “I think it will be an interesting first half, but I think in the second half, Fury you will definitely find how to get to Usyk, given that Usyk it’s a small heavyweight. And the way you hit a guy like Usyk is pressing. This is how you will beat him ”.
