It’s waved off after Joshua dropped twice. Stunning.
Anthony Joshua was floored twice in the third round in sensational scenes
AJ suffered one of the biggest shocks ever in heavyweight boxing as he lost his world titles.
It ranks alongside 33/1 shot Buster Douglas’s stunning KO victory against
Mike Tyson back in 1990 which shocked the boxing world.
California-based 29-year-old Ruiz took the fight on short notice, after a handful of dimwitted potential rivals turned it down, and pulled off the most amazing of upsets.
He was a 25/1 shot to dethrone WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO champ Joshua – but he pulled off what most believed was the impossible.
Ruiz said: “I just want to thank God for the victory. This is what I have been dreaming about and working hard for.”
Exactly as AJ predicted, Ruiz’s first action was to try to jab at his six pack but it bounced off his rock-hard abs.
The fight was waved off by Mike Griffin in a sensational victory for Andy Ruiz Jr
Joshua started the fight with his lead left hand swinging low, by his waist, a risky tactic that Ruiz warned him against with a couple of early digs that had the crowd concerned.
The British hero enjoyed his first scoring punches in the last 50 seconds of the second round when he landed twice with a short left hook and a stiff jab.
And in round three he raced through the gears and dropped Ruiz with a murderous uppercut
