    I think Teddy Atlas is spot on here

    Teddy is a great orator, and I always love quoting Mickey from Rocky.

    It makes sense what Atlas is saying, but ....
    I don't know if Joshua's mindset was much different from the Klitschko fight really.
    Klitschko was too old and too slow and lumbering to keep the same pressure on him that Ruiz did. He let Joshua off the hook. He missed loads of punches.
    Ruiz was fast and accurate and kept the pressure on and broke Joshua down.

    Joshua showed heart in both fights .... up to the point where he kind of just quit.
    Klitschko never forced him to quite that point.
