Ruiz Stuns Joshua

Andy Ruiz pulled off one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Flooring Joshua 4 times , until it was eventually stopped in round 7

Joshua was stunned and clearly hadn’t prepared for Ruiz Jr’s surprising speed and reaction time

Ruiz marched Anthony Joshua down from the start , Joshua rarely seemed in control . The Mexican becomes the first Mexican Heavyweight Champion

He shows the boxing world it’s always possible to win , and step in to a big fight and come out victorious

Here at Place Sports we are always very critical of Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn , this being due to the duo dogging the big names such as Tyson Fury

However we owe an apology to Andy Ruiz after our article when the fight was announced (https://placesports.co.uk/2019/04/30/anthony-joshuas-new-opponent/) . He showed himself to be a world class boxer last night and is deserving of high praise. All at Place Sports would like to congratulate Andy Ruiz Jr
