Anthony Joshua is determined to expose Andy Ruiz Jr in their world heavyweight championship rematch billed to hold in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia later this year.

Ruiz Jr, a Mexican shocked the then unbeaten Joshua to win the IBF, WBA and WBO titles in June but a second fight will take place in Saudi Arabia on December 7

“A little blip should not change you as a person,” Joshua exclusively told Sky Sports from Saudi Arabia at a press conference on Wednesday.

“You should stay consistent with who you are.

“I can become familiar with him. I know what I’m in for. I know what I’m capable of. I know what he’s capable of.

“I know some of the attributes he possesses, and some of the weaknesses. I have to go about exposing him a little bit more.

“The first time I had him down [in the first fight], I could have been smarter. These little things you think about in your head.

“Now I meet him eye-to-eye again and, subconsciously, the clock is ticking and I start thinking more and more about the fight.”

Joshua and Ruiz Jr went face to face for the first time since their first fight when they reconvened on Wednesday in Saudi Arabia, the location of their rematch.
