‘It’s the punch he got hit with against Andy Ruiz’: Dillian Whyte reveals Anthony Joshua’s weak spot is being hit ‘high on the right side of the head’
- Dillian Whyte believes he has found where Anthony Joshua is ‘vulnerable’
- Joshua suffered a humiliating defeat by Andy Ruiz Jr in New York last year
- He was hit above the ear, causing his legs to become unsteady in the match
Dillian Whyte believes he has identified Anthony Joshua’s big vulnerability, and that it was exploited by Andy Ruiz Jr in his stunning New York victory last year.
Joshua suffered a humiliating defeat by the Mexican at Madison Square Gardens last June before winning the rematch in Saudi Arabia in December.
But Whyte thinks he has pinpointed a weak spot, after Joshua was knocked down in the third round when he was hit above the ear, causing his legs to become unsteady.

‘Listen Joshua’s a great fighter and all that but he’s vulnerable,’ he told Matchroom Boxing.
‘He’s vulnerable to getting hit high on the right side of his head.
‘It’s the punch that he got hit with against Andy Ruiz.
‘If you hit him on the side of his head, he goes over, I don’t know if he’s got an equilibrium problem or whatever.’
As well as his vulnerability being exploited, he believes Joshua was guilty of overconfidence in last summer’s fight.
‘Also, he underestimated Ruiz, sometimes you get carried away’, he added.

‘His team around him, some of the younger guys probably gassed him up.
‘I don’t know why he came into that looking like it was a walkover job.
‘Ruiz did good but Joshua did exactly what he should have done, outboxed him, beat him up.
‘Ruiz keeps asking for a third fight but there’s no chance.’
Whyte was scheduled to fight Alexander Povetkin on May 2 but the clash has been rescheduled to July 4 because of coronavirus.
