Anthony Joshua is a champion, and a warrior, even without the WBA, IBF and WBO Heavyweight titles he lost on Saturday against Andy Ruiz. Joshua was dropped four times after flooring Ruiz in the third round, and he was ultimately stopped in the seventh by a determined, well-prepared and seemingly overlooked challenger.

On Wednesday, Joshua posted a video on YouTube to discuss the loss, his mental state, and the rematch that his promoter Eddie Hearn announced would take place later this year.

Here is the video:

Joshua makes no excuses for his defeat. In the raw video, he shoots down all of the conspiracy theories about food poisoning, being hurt in training camp, panic attacks, and more. He also made it clear, he would be sticking with his team, and he specifically named his much-maligned trainer Rob McCracken as he talked about moving forward and preparing for future training camps.

While Joshua didn’t make excuses, he did mention the drama surrounding this fight. He talked about Jarrell Miller (who was originally supposed to face Joshua but was removed after testing positive for banned substances). Joshua also mentioned Luis Ortiz backing out of the offer to replace Miller, and Ruiz stepping in to fill the spot.
