Anthony Joshua has explained his new ‘killer’ mindset for the Andy Ruiz Jr rematch on December 7 in Saudi Arabia.
In a video posted to his YouTube channel, AJ gave fans an insight into his Sheffield training camp as he prepares for a potential career-defining bout. Discussing his mental state, Joshua said, “Mindset’s calm, mindset’s cool. Killer mindset, that’s what it’s about.
“Ice cold, stay in the moment and stay disciplined, just killer. I belong here, I deserve to be here. This ain’t new to me.
“Everything we do is only for greatness. That’s just how I want to approach my training camps moving forward.
“Boxing’s a sticky and a tricky game mentally. Physically is one thing, but there are highs and lows with this.
“Do I want to do it? Am I good enough? Am I getting the opportunities that I deserve?
“So many obstacles, but you’ve just told yourself that you belong here and you belong at the top level.
“When you keep on telling yourself that, you’ll soon find yourself in positions that are only for the greats.”
