For Ruizhe wants revenge Joshua be organized no matter what happens in each boxer’s upcoming fight.

“Once he beat me there, there should have been a trilogy,” he said in an interview with ID Boxing.

“I should have had one more chance to get those belts back, just like we gave him the chance with the rematch.

“Of course there has to be a trilogy. Even if he loses or wins, or if I lose or win, there has to be a trilogy someday and somehow.”

Andy Ruiz talks Usyk vs. Joshua

The American also spoke of Usyk versus Joshua during his appearance on ID Boxing.

“I think it could go either way,” he said as he began his analysis.

“I say Joshua has a new coach in Robert Garciahe’s out there trying to show him the Mexican style of being aggressive, throwing a lot of punches, being first, coming on him.

“But Usyk is a clumsy fighter, he’s a clumsy southpaw fighter.

“That’s why we also chose a left-hander in case we had to cross Usyk.

“Even in combat it’s a bit tricky, but we adapt to it.

“I’m pretty sure if Antoine Joshua fought a lot, because that’s exactly what helps us and having different styles in there, he can adapt.”
