Andy Ruiz Jr.: The Mexican Crowned Heavyweight Champ
Andy Ruiz Jr made boxing history last night by becoming the first Mexican boxer to be crowned the heavyweight champion of the world. In the 7-round stunner, Andy delivered two size-able blows to opponent Anthony Joshua’s head, taking the title by TKO.
Having offered himself up as a last minute replacement, the fresh faced champ had spoiled Joshua’s US debut, remarking “I’m still pinching myself to see if this is real, man.”
