Andy Ruiz is battle-ready to defend the titles he won six months ago when he squares up against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia this weekend.
The Mexican-American fighter caused major boxing upset on June 1 in the United States after downing his opponent at the MGM Arena in the seventh round.
However, with about two days left to their famous rematch, Ruiz sent soft shades to Joshua after appearing in their press conference in a New York Knicks top.
SunSport reports that the boxer wore the same outfit freshly after winning the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles earlier in the year.
Both boxers were said to have been presented with the New York Knicks tops before the unexpected happened at the Maddison Square Gardens.
Meanwhile, some fans have noticed Ruiz’s message ahead of the second meeting between the two fighters.

One eagle-eyed fan on Twitter said:
“Andy Ruiz wearing a New York Knicks jersey at the final presser. Strong trolling.”
Another added: “Andy Ruiz has arrived at the final press conference wearing the New York Knicks top he got the night he beat Anthony Joshua at MSG. Don’t think Joshua needs reminding.”
And one claimed: “Andy Ruiz is wearing a New York Knicks top just to rub it in…”
The unified champion was thrilled fans spotted his sly reminder of the shock upset win at Madison Square Garden.
