Drama in the desert? Joshua risks it all

Drama in the desert? Joshua risks it all Anthony Joshua is one stray punch from a disaster but also on the precipice of glory. There are few things more fabled in sport than the heavyweight who loses then reclaims his throne and this is the position than Joshua finds himself in, in a rematch against the underdog with a tummy, Andy Ruiz Jr, who stole his titles in a New York shock for the ages.

Anthony Joshua "in hindsight" would not have let Andy Ruiz Jr pose with the world heavyweight championship belts before their fight.

Joshua allowed Ruiz Jr to playfully hold the IBF, WBA and WBO gold two days prior to his defence - then lost the titles and his unbeaten record in a major shock.

"In hindsight, I would probably tell my fighter, as a psychological thing: 'don't give them away'," Joshua said on AJ: The Untold Truth.

"I always said previously that the belts didn't represent me. I was responsible, and a champion, before I had those belts.

"The belts can't dictate who I am, as a man. The belts can go but I still have a championship mind-set.

He has addressed conspiracy theories regarding his defeat to Ruiz Jr - including the perception about his unusual body language during the ring walk.

"I was so relaxed," Joshua said. "I don't see boxing as pressure. People make more of it than I do, which is why I'm really calm walking to the ring."

Joshua also denied he was knocked down during a sparring session which led to a below-par performance against Ruiz Jr.

"Everyone wants to be famous, rather than a good fighter," he said.
