Andy Ruiz junior has undergone an unbelievable body transformation since he was defeated by Anthony Joshua back in December 2019.
The Mexican, despite lasting the distance in Saudi Arabia, was completely outclassed by Joshua in the bout which happened over a year ago.
In the aftermath of the clash, Ruiz was the first to admit he did not train enough for the match and was not 100% ready for the bout.
“Me, my dad, and my team were talking… I should have listened to them,” he said after the loss. “I think we started [training] too late. Three months of partying, celebrating, affected me. What can I say? I shouldn’t have put on all this weight.
Over a year later, Ruiz has not featured in any high profile fights since but if his latest photos are anything to go by, he has been putting in the work.
He posted several photos and videos of himself gearing up for a comeback and from the images he shared, he has clearly lost a significant amount of weight.
Jorge Capetillo, his trainer, estimates he has lost at least 25 pounds in the last year alone.
Here is a video of Ruiz in his latest shape:
