Andy Ruiz Jr has admitted he ‘ate everything’ and drank too many ‘Coronas’ ahead of his loss to Anthony Joshua.

The Mexican-American shocked the world when he beat Joshua in June to capture the Brit’s heavyweight titles but was beaten in a point’s decision in the rematch on Saturday evening.

Ruiz weighed in at 15 pounds heavier for the second clash between the pair than he had for the first fight.

And he has suggested that he let himself go and should have taken the build-up to the second encounter more seriously.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Ruiz admitted: “I think I ate everything… EVERYTHING… that’s why I gained so much weight.

“I was having too much fun, I was celebrating too much.

Ruiz still thought he performed well and insisted he’d train harder for the third fight

“Even out of shape, even the way that I was training back and forth (between Mexico and California)… f******, I did pretty good, dude! I did pretty good! But, I wish I had taken it more serious.”
