British professional boxer, Amir Khan, has warned Anthony Joshua he is making the “worst mistake”, by taking an immediate rematch against Andy Ruiz Jnr.
Ruiz dropped Joshua four times, before a dramatic seventh-round stoppage victory last weekend at Madison Square Garden.
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has this week confirmed that they will opt for a rematch against Mexico’s first ever heavyweight champion, with plans to stage the fight in November or December in the UK.
However, Khan believes it is not a bright idea.
“When I heard he was doing that I thought it was the worst mistake he could make.
“Look, first of all, Ruiz will be full of confidence going into this fight and you’ve got Joshua who will be a little bit on the edge and on the back foot knowing that he can be hurt and put down.
“I think it’s very bad to take back-to-back and I can’t believe Eddie is putting him straight back into the mix with him. I think he needs a nice easy knockout win – maybe two – and then have the rematch,” Khan told The UK Independent.
