Anthony Joshua regains his heavyweight titles!

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.

Once a champ, always a champ 🥊 @anthonyfjoshua regains his World Heavyweight Boxing titles as he beats Andy Ruiz Jr with unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia. #RuizJoshua2 #RoadtoRedemption.

Really mature display by @anthonyfjoshua. Sometimes you really do learn more in defeat than you do in victory.

Joshua speaks:

First of all, I want to thank God. I want to say, man, the first time was so nice, I had to do it twice. A man like me don’t make no excuses, I’m used to knocking out guys. I said to myself I was going to correct myself. The sweet science of this sport is hitting and not getting caught. I’m hungry and I’m humble. Thank you to Andrew Ruiz and his family.
