It was not supposed to happen, but it did, and it’s the biggest story in boxing this year.
If you haven’t heard by now, Andy Ruiz Jr shocked the world with a seventh round TKO of Anthony Joshua, dropping the heavily-favored, previously-unbeaten titleholder four times — twice in the third round, twice in the seventh, after having come off the canvas himself in round three.

In my opinion @anthonyfjoshua has peaked and has kind of exposed himself. He will never be the same. The heart has shifted. He’s been and still is an imposing guy but again I feel will not ever have same impact. #JoshuaRuiz

A tough guy a fat guy. Always pick the fat guy.

We have our back and Forth’s but @anthonyfjoshua changed his stars through life. heavyweight boxing, these things happen, rest up, recover, regroup and come again
— TYSON FURY (@Tyson_Fury) June 2, 2019
Its these fights that makes a dream of becoming a world champion. When the Underdog WINS.
Reminds me of the night @ChrisAlgieri got the big “W” agains Ruslan

I hated to see y’all hate on him saying he was going to get knocked out in a couple rounds, but look you when you see a small dog with a big fight in him you can’t bet against that. Congrats to the Mexican Heavyweight champion I’m happy to see it pic.twitter.com/JTRKXJBv2r

He wasn’t a true champion. His whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts.
