Why Ruiz Could Be Stripped Off World Title

Mexican-American boxer Andy Ruiz Jr has dedicated his victory against Anthony Joshua to God, noting that he could not believe his dream has come to pass.

Naija News had reported earlier that the British-Nigerian boxer suffered humiliating defeat on his United States debut after being knocked down four times by the Mexican-American boxer, to leave him out of the heavyweight championship.

Ruiz Jr. stopped Joshua in the seventh round of the fight on Saturday, June 1, at the Madison Square Garden, New York, USA, to become the first Mexican-American heavyweight world champion.

Joshua, a British title-holder, was defending his IBF, WBA and WBO World Heavyweight Titles in the fight against Ruiz, but the underdog knocked him down four times after which he (Ruiz) was awarded a technical knockout.

Moments after the match, Ruiz Jr. addressed a post-match conference, where he thanked God and his boxing team.

His words:  “I want to thank God for giving me this victory. Without him, this wouldn’t be possible.

“I feel so good, I can’t believe I just made my dreams come true. I want to thank my whole team.

“The sky is the limit baby!”
