According to MySportDab, Anthony Joshua has successfully retaken his heavyweight belts after defeating rival Andy Ruiz Jr in a very exciting rematch in Saudi Arabia.
The Olympic gold medallist erased the memory of his first professional loss with an exquisite performance in front of a sold-out crowd at the Diriyah Arena.
MySportDab understands Joshua jabbed and moved his way to a unanimous decision victory, which brought about the end of Ruiz Jr’s reign as unified
Joshua has regained the WBA (Super), WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles yesterday night when he defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch in Saudi Arabia.
Joshua set the tone for the fight from the outset, peppering Ruiz Jr with a lightning-quick jab.
His range jab – which he failed to utilise in their first meeting – kept a dogged Ruiz Jr at bay and allowed him to utilise his nifty footwork.
Ruiz Jr’s attempts to find Joshua’s chin seldom bore fruit, though he did have some success in the fourth and 11th rounds.
Victory over Ruiz Jr saw Joshua follow in Lennox Lewis’ footsteps and become a two-time ruler of the heavyweight division.
