Hearn: Joshua may not recover
Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn fears that the British boxer may not recover from his shock loss against Andy Ruiz Jr.
Joshua lost his unbeaten record and titles after being stopped in the seventh round by the Mexican in New York. The Daily Star, Mirror and Times report that a rematch clause in the fight contract will be activated.
Hearn said: “Great fighters come back, but some may never be the same. The future will show how Anthony responds. He must win that rematch because there is nothing after that.”
