Watch the video of Anthony Joshua handing over his title belts to Andy Ruiz Jr., for photograph, few day before their fight on June 1 in U.S.
Imonitie, on his Instagram page blamed the Nigerian-born pugilist for the loss in the fight, noting that his action created a “believe system” in Ruiz Jr.
According to him, power of an experience allowed Ruiz Jr. to create miracles in his life.
“The video happened some days ago where Anthony Joshua proceeded to let Andy Ruiz take pictures with his heavyweight championship belts.
“Andy has never touched a heavyweight championship belt but the moment he touched it and took pictures with it, something took place – ‘believed in’ was immediately transferred to Andy.
“Andy subconsciously had the opportunity to experience what it will be like to actually own those belts.
“His subconscious mind received the information whether it was real or fake but this time he believed it was real and it worked for him,” Imonitie said.
