Andy Ruiz Beat Me With A Lucky Punch, He’s Not That Skillful – Anthony Joshua Speaks Out

Published

on

Anthony Joshua claims that Andy Ruiz only beat him with a ‘lucky punch’ in their first meeting in June, and that the heavyweight champion ‘ain’t that skilful’.

Joshua lost his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles to the Destroyer at Madison Square Garden, being stopped in the seventh round in New York.

The Brit was floored four times in the bout before the referee stepped in and waved off the fight, handing Ruiz the victory in one of the biggest upsets in recent boxing history.

However, Joshua was not impressed by the new champ, dismissing his efforts as ‘lucky’ and questioning his skills in the ring.

‘By a lucky punch. By a punch sent by the gods,’ Joshua told Sky Sports about his defeat in America.

‘I don’t know what concussion is, but for sure, after the fight I didn’t know what round [the fight was stopped].

‘So I’m just shocked it took Ruiz Jr another four rounds to get me out. Let me concuss Ruiz Jr – he won’t get back up.’

‘He ain’t that skilful. He’s a good fighter.’

Joshua actually scored the first knockdown of the match, flooring Ruiz in the third round and the former champion believes he was over-zealous in going for the finish.

‘Ruiz Jr got hit by a flash knock-down – he was still raw, he wasn’t well-done, he wasn’t cooked yet. I should have left him a little bit longer. But the instinct in me was: “Boom!”

‘I ended up getting caught with a left hook on the top of the head.’

The two heavyweights will meet again on 7 December in Saudi Arabia and Joshua is extremely confident of winning the rematch.

When asked about his plan for the second bout, Joshua said: ‘Do what I did in round three, but with more silky skill. And that was easy to put him down. So I need to be smarter, next time.

‘I wasn’t boxing properly. Skipping around the ring like a marathon runner. Dancing around the ring.

‘It was never the game-plan to have my arms low, and be over my front foot.’

The media personality, in a new video, explained how exhausting it is dating a stingy person. She also condemned men who, when they go on dates, scrutinize the bill and keep complaining about the cost.

Sharing the video, she wrote:

I am sooooo fine ????? okkkkkk let’s focus shall we??? It is Wednesday and my crazy side is here. Let’s talk about those miserly people. I call it “scarcity mentality”. They hate to spend on themselves talk-less of spending on other people. Dating a miser is so exhausting, even if you work hard, you will always be excessive even for the basic things of life to them. They will always find a way to make you look wasteful or feel bad for wanting more out of life. ?????. Stay away from people who suffer from “scarcity mentality” for your own peace of mind or you’ll defend why your kids should go to good schools, why you want more out of life, you’ll always explain yourself forever

Published

on

Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, housemate, Esther, was at the early hours of Thursday pranked by fellow housemates; Sir Dee and Frodd.

It all started at the garden when Frodd approached Sir Dee all of a sudden for speaking ill about him to other housemates and hurled insults at him

This resulted into a serious argument between both housemates for some minutes, which attracted Esther and other housemates to the garden to separate them.

While Tacha and Omashola tried to calm down Sir Dee, Mercy and other housemates were pacifying Frodd.

However, when Esther got into the garden trying to separate the fight between Frodd and Sir Dee, she was thrown to one corner as Frodd shouted happy birthday to her.

He later sang a birthday song for her alongside Sir Dee and other housemates, adding that the supposed fight between him and Sir Dee was fake and intended to bring Esther to the garden to celebrate her birthday.

Esther in reaction buried her head in between her laps as she hugged all housemates in excitement.

Frodd and Sir Dee’s action earned them reactions and approval from Nigerians and BBNaija fans on social media.

Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;

@Zaddy_Nomso “Wow Frodd and SirDee are good actors, Damn. This looked so real. Awww the best scene in this season yet. Esther would feel so special right now.”

Alleged Video Of Senator Kashamu Being Slapped Inside London Train, He Reacts

Published

on

The senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu, has denied claims that he is the one captured in a viral video being slapped on the head on a train in London.

Loading…

According to a report by Punch, in the seven-second video, a bespectacled bald man whose face is not shown, is sitting on a train when another man in a white shirt standing behind him gives him a heavy smack on the head and runs off before his victim can do anything.

Though the assaulted man’s face isn’t seen, many Nigerians on social media alleged that the man was Senator Kashamu.

The senator’s spokesman, Austin Oniyokor, in an interview with our Correspondent, however, denied the involvement of his principal, saying no one could identify the person in the video as Kashamu.

Onyiokor said the video had been shared on WhatsApp with people alleging that the victim was Kashamu.

He said, “Can you identify that person as Senator Kashamu?

“I wonder why you want me to react to something I cannot identify.

“If you can identify him, I want you to tell me. I cannot identify the person as my principal.

“That some people are sending something on WhatsApp does not make it (true).

“I do not expect any reporter or any medium worth its name to attach any probative value to something that cannot be proved.

“That is not my principal and I don’t know why I should react to it.”

Kashamu’s spokesman described the alleged assault as a non-issue.

According to him, no one could identify the person in the video, “except whoever is writing that is saying they went to London on the same flight or he/she was there when it happened.”

Asked if the senator was in Nigeria, he said, “Yes, if you want to see him, you can come to VI. He’s in his office — I don’t know what kind of trash. It has been on WhatsApp for about two weeks and, last week, Kashamu buried his mother in Ijebu.

“People were there; it was reported. So, I don’t know where this trash comes from. I’m not sure you or Punch can establish that that is him.”

This comes four days after former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, was physically assaulted by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday, during the New Yam Festival of the Igbo.
