AJ reclaimed the titles he lost in New York six months ago with a convincing points win over the Mexican fighter in Saudi Arabia.

Ruiz Jr failed to make an impact during the bout, admitting he partied too hard in the wake of his shock win at Madison Square Garden.

And AJ is now looking to the future, with plenty of potential opponents in waiting.

Fury is one of those as he prepares for a rematch with American champ Deontay Wilder.

And the Gypsy King’s coach has already fired shots at Joshua by describing him as a “poor man’s Fury.”

Some boxing fans did not like AJ’s approach to the Ruiz Jr rematch.

And Fury’s head trainer Ben Davison believes his own man is still a lot better, saying: “Good performance, he added another side to his game, done what he needed to do, got the win which was the most important thing.

“That’s exactly what he needed to employ. It was almost, not in a horrible way, but it was like a poor man’s Tyson Fury, wasn’t it?

“That’s not in a nasty way because, you know, obviously he can’t do it to the level of Tyson but it was the tactics and he did well.

“It was as 50-50 fight and he came out with the win, so it was a good performance.

“It looked a big ring but listen I’m not going to say ‘oh this, oh that’ because it’s better for British boxing that Joshua won.

“It means there’s big shows in the UK and if there’s big shows it should mean big money for prospects who are on that show.”
