'Career of lies': Deontay Wilder savages Anthony Joshua after shock loss

The 29 year old only needs to look at the past for inspiration as fellow former British heavyweight champions Lennox Lewis came back to defeat Rahman, his Ruiz, in the rematch later that year. Referee Michael Griffin stopped the scheduled 12-round bout at 1:26 of the round with Joshua leaning against a neutral corner, a sick smile of disbelief on his face. "He quit! As a champion, as a true champion, bruh, if I have to turn into the Bronze Bomber - like I said, when I'm in the ring, I don't mean no good for nobody, bruh".

Andy Ruiz Jr. just pulled off one of the greatest upsets in boxing history with his 7th round TKO of Anthony Joshua.

Joshua went down again in a flurry of Ruiz punches with almost two minutes left in the seventh and while the British fighter got off his knees just in time to beat the count his legs looked like jelly as he made his way to a neutral corner.

"Follow your dreams, if someone puts you down don't listen, just keep working like I did".

If he can banish his New York City demons, he simply has to make fights with Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury to rebuild his reputation.

Ruiz holding all his titles. Despite suffering a third-round knockdown, Ruiz fought back to a stunning win. Joshua was saved by the bell. Ruiz himself says he will take the contest at any time. "It was a lovely combination in the third round".

Ruiz even warned Joshua before the fight: "Don't underestimate this little fat boy".

At just 22 and with an Olympic gold medal to his name from Rome 1960, the up-and-coming Cassius Clay seized the WBA and WBC titles from the then-unbeaten Liston, who was making his second title defence.

Ruiz's ambush win is being hailed by some as one of the major upsets in heavyweight history, ranking with 42-1 underdog Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson in 1990 and Leon Spinks' 15-round split decision over Muhammad Ali in 1978.

The Brit was knocked down four times before his seventh-round stoppage at the hands of the Mexican at Madison Square Gardens.

There were telling signs that Joshua's week in the Big Apple was getting progressively worse leading up to his monumental loss, too. "I think that was the Mexican blood in me, and the Mexican warrior that I have, I had to return the favour". "I am so happy", said Ruiz. Debate the health or relevance of boxing all you want, but for a night, at an electric Garden stuffed with celebs and 20,000 singing, roaring fans, there was no better place to be in sports. "His whole career was consistent of lies, contradiction and gifts. now we know who was running from who!"
