Andy Ruiz Jr at his Presser after the fight
Andy Ruiz Jr wants a rematch against Joseph Parker, and his coach Abel Sanchez agrees.
He is a bitter man after the loss to Parker tonight. "I thought I did enough to win."
Ruiz believes he controlled the fight and he should be credited with eight rounds and Parker four rounds.
He said he proved tonight he is a heavyweight contender. After the loss, he will train hard and go back to the gym.
Ruiz said that Parker did not hurt him at all.
"What can I say, I just got to come back and hopefully we'll get a rematch one day."
Sanchez agrees with his charge, "The judges may have been influenced by the boisterous crowd."
He adds, "Even though we had a voiceferous crowd, I still think we did enough to win."
The fight he says is a kind of fight worthy of a rematch, "Where else can you see a fight like tonight? Two gusys throwing a lot of punches."
