In front of a sold out crowd of 20,201 at Madison Square Garden and live on DAZN, Andy Ruiz, Jr. (33-1, 22 KOs) made boxing history by defeating heavyweight king Anthony Joshua (22-1, 21 KOs) in his United States debut.

Ruiz captured Joshua’s IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO World Heavyweight Championship titles in a thrilling upset that ended by technical knockout in the seventh round.

Since the knockout loss, Joshua has accepted defeat like a true champion and vows to come back better in the rematch which has been confirmed for the end of 2019.

Ruiz’s much-deserved victory lap is in full swing as he probably boasts to be the first Heavyweight champion of Mexican descent.
