Ahead of his clash with Andy Ruiz, Anthony Joshua has reportedly floored his sparring partners and sent them home early.
Daily Mail reports that American heavyweight boxer, Timothy Moten, who has been in camp with Joshua for the past three months said this.
Moten is one of Joshua’s chief sparring partners ahead of the weekend’s showdown.
He said, “There have been guys here, I don’t want to say any names, but I’ve seen guys come into camp, get blown away and get sent home that same week.
“He’s dropped a few of his sparring partners and he’s rocked a lot.
“Joshua is by far the hardest hitter I’ve been in the ring with.”
Moten also believes that losing to Ruiz has woken up the ‘monster’ in Joshua.
“I think he may have needed that wake-up call. He needed to get that hunger back and I’m telling you, it’s there again,” the American says.
AJ, as he is popularly called has been in training as he bids to reclaim the WBA, WBO and IBF belts he lost to Ruiz back in June at Madison Square Garden, New York.
Anthony Joshua will face Andy Ruiz in the ring on Saturday, December 7.
