It was his first loss in his career and Ruiz is now the owner of  Joshua’s IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO world titles.

He wrote on his instagram page and said “this is Andy’s night, congratulations champ”

However, Anthony Joshua has vowed to come back for a rematch.

He said ‘It’s a test of character. I’ll see what is next and move on,’ BBC reports.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said a rematch is a “must win” because Joshua’s options will be “nothing after that”.

A rematch clause was part of the contract and Hearn said he expected it to take place “in England in November or December”. Ruiz himself says he will take the contest at any time.
