Former Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua regains his heavyweight title, after a tough rematch with Andy Ruiz
Joshua wins by unanimous decision! The judges had it 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109. The two men hug in the center of the ring, it’s clear they have tremendous respect for each other as Joshua chats to Ruiz for 30 seconds or so.
What a disciplined performance from Joshua, who kept his opponent at distance and was barely troubled by Ruiz. He shed 11lbs for the fight, looking for agility and speed over power. And it was that lightness on his feet that won the day.
Joshua who quoted in an interview earlier said:-
“I just came here for the boxing opportunity. I look around and everyone seems pretty happy and chilled. I’ve not seen anyone in a negative light out here, everyone seems to be having a good time.”
