“I know, that’s what we were talking about, huh. That would be crazy if he does go and, sh*t. I’m not gonna be a hater, I’m not gonna be nothing. I’m gonna be, you know, like teammates you know. But if it happens, but I doubt, it’s not gonna happen,” Ruiz said.

Ruiz himself is a relatively new addition to the Reynoso camp and says he won’t have any problem with Joshua joining.

‘The Destroyer’ is on the road to recovery after undergoing knee surgery earlier this year. The heavyweight will look to make a return to the ring and go after the titles again.
