The Mexican is looking to shock Anthony Joshua yet again, this time with a much leaner frame

Joshua’s promoter Hearn has been trading insults with the Mexican in the build up to the fight by calling him ‘chubby’.

This led to Ruiz apologising to Hearn for taking the undefeated record of his star client earlier this year.

Now Hearn has responded by encouraging Ruiz to lose another two stone before the highly-anticipated rematch in the Middle East.

‘It’s a dangerous move to start taking weight off, in my opinion. I love it. I hope he loses another two stone,’ Hearn told talkSPORT.

‘We still have to execute the game plan and win the fight. It’s one month today and it’s the biggest fight of the year.

‘It’s one of the biggest fights of our generation in terms of heavyweight fights and heavyweight rematches.’
