It is the most anticipated fight of the season and it promises to be an explosive encounter. The international boxing community will hold their breath on Sunday, 2 June as Anthony “AJ” Joshua defends his world titles against Andy Ruiz Jr in a heavyweight boxing bout slated to hold at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Joshua, the Unified World Heavyweight Champion with the IBO, WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles, returns to the ring for the first time following his victory over Alexander Povetkin in September 2018.
AJ will be fighting on American soil for the first time as he defends his titles against Ruiz Jr aka “The Destroyer”. This will be another big night for British boxing, one that boxing lovers will not want to miss. “The Destroyer” replaced Jarell Miller who failed several drug tests to lose his shot at heavyweight gold.
Ruiz Jr is no walkover with 33 bouts under his belt. Of his 32 wins, 21 were by TKO. Since his only recorded defeat against Joseph Parker in a WBO world title fight in 2016, Ruiz has been on a winning streak which he hopes to maintain. Joshua makes his US debut with a record of 22-0, 21 by KO.
