After Andy Ruiz Jr. was defeated by Anthony Joshua in the rematch last December and lost his world championship belts, he also got rid of his coach. Ruiz admitted after the defeat that it was his fault that he snatched and neglected the workout, not Manny Robles, though something was wrong between the two of them. Although Ruiz adult man can not constantly hold the hand of his coach, he can not force him to train if he does not want to, but it seems lack of trust or respect for each other if he could not influence him.
Since then, several names have emerged as to whom Ruiz would train with, but a commissioner has not yet been announced. Now Ruiz has stated that he would like to continue working with Canelo’s coach, Eddy Reynoso, who coaches several other good boxers in addition to Canelo, including young Ryan Garcia.
Ruiz’s goal is to fight Joshua for the third time and get his belts back. He should wait for that, but he could fight for a world title again in a year or two. According to the WBC president, Ruiz also has a good chance of a title fight if he takes the preparation seriously and wins his upcoming matches, obviously against more serious opponents.
Ruiz’s biggest enemy is food and willpower. He has talent, strength, and knowledge, but he has less willpower. After the first Joshua match, he also joked well that Snickers was able to win the champion by eating, but he was also able to lost in the rematch. Let’s say he also exaggerated the partying before the rematch, success came to mind and he was more concerned with celebration than training. Every boxer needs a good coach who is not only professionally on top, but can also help mentally and the alignment between them works well. Maybe Ruiz can find what he is looking for in Reynoso.
Reynoso would also be happy to prepare for the first Mexican heavyweight world champion if he is disciplined enough and executes his orders. He said it would be an honor to train him.
