ROME – Against all the odds, at the Madison Square Garden in New York, Anthony Joshua , world champion of the top Wba, Ibf and Wbo, was knocked out by the 29 year old Andy Ruiz jr . The challenger managed to roll the opponent four times in seven rounds. Joshua, at the first ko in his career, commented: “Great merit to Andy, great respect. He's a good boxer. I thank America and all those who have come here for this evening. I'm sorry for my friends and my fans ".
Joshua was given as a big favorite for the meeting: initially he would have to challenge the American Jarrell Miller, who however had tested positive for some doping tests last April. Ruiz had stepped forward to replace him and started as an underdog, although he had more experience and a greater number of disputed matches. Battendo Joshua became the first Mexican boxer to win the belt of world heavyweight champion. (source QUOTIDIANO.NET – SKY SPORT)
