Eddie Hearn thinks Andy Ruiz Jr is making a big mistake by losing so much weight ahead of his rematch with Anthony Joshua next month.

The Mexican-American boxer shocked the world by beating AJ for his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles earlier this year.

Eddie Hearn sees the Ruiz vs Joshua rematch as the biggest fight of the year

Ruiz was derided ahead of the first fight because of his rotund appearance and love for a Snickers bar.

His speed and power shocked everyone, including Joshua, as he knockout out the British fighter.

Pictures have shown a dramatic body transformation ahead of the December rematch but Ruiz insists he is only a few pounds lighter.

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

“Joshua is very focused. It all comes down to the night. This time Anthony will be 100 per cent ready for Andy Ruiz. 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.

“We are so desperate to see Anthony become a two-time heavyweight world champion.

“Andy Ruiz looks good and he is going to be confident. Like I said, AJ has been preparing so hard. He wants to win so badly and everyone will be watching.

“It’s a real 50/50 fight. Two great fighters and anything can happen. That’s what we love about the sport.”
