Opposites Attract

Andy Ruiz Jnr may not be the opponent we wanted for Anthony Joshua but, as Elliot Worsell explains, he’s a refreshing change from the recent chaos at heavyweight
THE UNDERDOG: Ruiz Jnr is a huge outsider, with some bookmakers placing him as long as 12/1
THE FAVOURITE: Joshua is not expected to have any issues retaining his heavyweight titles

NOTHING looks right in the heavyweight division these days. The bodies, once regular sized and almost relatable, don’t look right and the belts around wider waists don’t look right.
