Anthony Joshua gives classy response to surprisingly harsh first question at press conference after Andy Ruiz Jr rematch win

Anthony Joshua received a tough first question at his post-fight press conference after beating Andy Ruiz Jr on Saturday night.

AJ put on a boxing masterclass to conquer the man who upset him back in June, but didn’t do enough to impress everyone.

The journalist asking the first question at the post-fight presser said: “You did well, but I expected more from you as a professional boxer.

“You won tonight, but what would you do to ensure that you maintain the title you have earned tonight?

“What strategy will you put in place to make sure that you maintain it?”

AJ classily replied: “It’s difficult to answer that question because when you’re facing all challengers, different sizes, different styles.

“Some people are pressure fighters, some people are counter-punchers. In boxing, you’re gonna have good nights and bad nights in the heavyweight division.

“So, all I can do is try my best, make my prayers and stay dedicated, and just do it for myself.

“If I’d box for the crowd or box for people’s opinions then I might not’ve been victorious tonight.

“I boxed on my own game plan, I trusted my own process and now I’m the champion.

“So I’m just gonna follow my own instincts while I’m boxing.”
