Andy Ruiz blamed three months of partying for his one-sided world heavyweight championship defeat to Anthony Joshua on Saturday, admitting he had failed to train seriously for his first title defence.

The 30-year-old Mexican-American stunned the world in June when he floored Joshua four times on the way to a sensational upset victory in their first fight at Madison Square Garden.

Three months of partying and celebrating affected me, what can I say?”
Ruiz told reporters after the fight.

Asked what he’d do differently if granted a rematch with Joshua, Ruiz replied: “Listen to my coach. Listen to my dad. And take it more seriously.” Trainer Manny Robles had wanted Ruiz back in the gym in July. Ruiz only started his camp in September.

You knew what you were doing, though you miscalculated thinking that even though you party you could just come and give Joshua one upper cut and knock him out as usual. Contest again Joshua will beat silly again!
