Andy Ruiz Jr. pulled off one of this biggest upsets in boxing history Saturday night at Madison Square Garden taking down undefeated Anthony Joshua by seventh-round TKO to dethrone the former champion.


Ruiz knocked down Joshua twice in the seventh round before the referee called it. Joshua fell to the mat four times during the fight and lost his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles.

This marks the first loss for Joshua in 22 bouts after winning by KO in 21 of his 22 fights prior. Ruiz improved his record to 33-1 and became the first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent with the win while being a 25-1 underdog.

Originally Joshua was expected to fight Jarrell Miller. However, Miller failed multiple drug tests for performance-enhancing drugs before the fight which led to his disqualification. Ruiz was fighting on short notice but hardly looked the part, delivering blow after blow before knocking him down for the final time.

Joshua is expected to exercise his rematch clause and another fight between these two should take place in the near future.
