American-born Mexican professional boxer, Andy Ruiz Jr has undergone a quite amazing body transformation and this development has certainly sent a strong warning to British boxer, Anthony Joshua whom he defeated earlier this year.

“I have a lot of respect for Anthony, outside the ring he is a very good man,” the champion told ESPN Mexico.
