- Anthony Joshua was stunned by Andy Ruiz before beating Mexican in rematch
- Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren believes AJ has been badly exposed

Anthony Joshua was badly exposed in his first fight against Andy Ruiz and gave heavyweights the blueprint to beat him, claims Frank Warren.
Tyson Fury’s promoter made another dig at AJ with the ‘Gypsy King’ likely to face his domestic rival in a massive showdown if both men win their upcoming fights.
He told the Express: ‘In less than a year you look at the turnaround, Joshua was top of the tree then he went to New York and it was a complete debacle.
Frank Warren believes Joshua’s first defeat by Andy Ruiz gave the blueprint to beat him
Ruiz shocked the world by overcoming the previously undefeated British fighter last June
‘He was exposed badly and gave everyone the blueprint to beat him.
‘He won his title back and he did it in good style in that he trained hard, got his tactics right and he was fit.’
Warren’s praise for Joshua came with the caveat that Ruiz was badly out shape and had hardly trained for the lucrative rematch in Saudi Arabia.
‘Ruiz was a disgrace; the guy looked like he had been training in his larder,’ the promoter added.
Fury dominated Deontay Wilder in February to win the WBC title. The American’s team threw in the towel in the seventh round.
But the ‘Bronze Bomber’ has since triggered a rematch clause that forces Fury to fight him for a third time.
Joshua is also tied up, having to meet Kubrat Pulev on June 20 as the mandatory challenger for the IBF belt.
Fans are desperate to see AJ and Fury meet in the ring but much will depend on whether they can pull off victory in their next fights.
The coronavirus outbreak causing chaos throughout the sporting world could yet lead to a delay of those encounters, further pushing back a possible date when Fury and Joshua could lock horns.
