ANDY RUIZ JR reminded fans of why he is the current unified champion of the world – by showing off his devastating hand speed.
The WBA, IBF and WBO ruler held a public workout in San Diego on Sunday and took the opportunity to showcase the tools that helped dethrone Anthony Joshua in June.
Ruiz smashed the pads with trainer Manny Robles ahead of his rematch against Brit superstar AJ in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
And supporters are already warning Joshua he faces another disaster night when the pair meet again for the heavyweight titles.
One said: “I hate to be on the end of that punch. Good luck AJ.”
Another said: “Would kill the average man.”
A third added: “There’s no way Joshua going to cop his belt back.”

BEN DAVISON has denied accusations Tyson Fury tampers with his gloves to hurt sparring partners.
American heavyweight Nicholas Asberry accused the Gypsy King of taking padding out of his sparring gloves.
Asberry posted a video on social media accusing Fury of tampering with his gloves to gain an advantage over sparring partners.
But trainer Davison has slammed the accusation on Twitter, when questioned about the video.
He said: “What do you think mate? Tyson/or team taking padding out his gloves to hurt sparring partners?!?
“When they only do 1-2 maybe 3 rounds at a time in and out? For THERE (sic) benefit! Funny how tyson has great relationship with everybody he spars.
“Convenient timing too!”
