Andy Ruiz Jr mocks Anthony Joshua by wearing New York Knicks top to press conference.. after Madison Square Garden upset – The Sun
ANDY RUIZ JR gave Anthony Joshua a subtle reminder of their first fight as he rocked up to the final press conference wearing his New York Knicks top.
The Mexican wore the exact same jersey as he posed with his world title belts after he dethroned the Brit in the Big Apple on June 1.
Joshua and Ruiz were both given Knicks jersey when they arrived at Madison Square Gardens before the Mexican's infamous win.
And Ruiz was keen to remind his opponent of the night that he has been so desperately trying to forget.
Ruiz rocked up to speak to the press wearing a black t-shirt, gold chain and his bright blue basketball jersey.
One eagle-eyed fan on Twitter said: "Andy Ruiz wearing a New York Knicks jersey at the final presser. Strong trolling."
Another added: "Andy Ruiz has arrived at the final press conference wearing the New York Knicks top he got the night he beat Anthony Joshua at MSG. Don't think Joshua needs reminding."
And one claimed: "Andy Ruiz is wearing a New York Knicks top just to rub it in…"
The unified champion was thrilled fans spotted his sly reminder of the shock upset win at Madison Square Garden.
He said: “I'm happy people noticed the jersey I wore.
"It means a lot to me because that's where I got the first victory on June 1 and that's why I brought it.
“I wore it to remind myself 'I'm the champ'.
“I won on June 1 and that's exactly what we're going to do on December 7.
"Seeing the jersey reminds him as well.
“You could call it a mind game but I did it for myself mainly.”
Joshua, who showed off his slim new look at this week's open workout, donned a plain white t-shirt as he sat alongside Eddie Hearn.
