Anthony Joshua still rates his triumph over Wladimir Klitschko higher than win over Andy Ruiz Jr

Andy Ruiz Jr v Anthony Joshua 2 - Clash on the Dunes, IBF, WBA, WBO & IBO World Heavyweight Title Fight

Anthony Joshua became a two-time world champion on Saturday night after out-boxing Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.


Joshua put on a tactical masterclass in the middle east, avenging his shock defeat to the same opponent in 2018.

The Brit dominated all areas of the rematch, keeping Ruiz at a distance with quick movements and a potent jab.

His strategy played out beautifully as Ruiz struggled to find a foothold in the bout, eventually showing his frustrations as the fight wore on.

In the end, Joshua would win by unanimous decision, reclaiming the belts he reluctantly gifted Ruiz Jr in New York in the process.


With Joshua's career potentially on the line, the win in Riyadh was a massive moment for the 30-year-old but where does it rank amongst the biggest wins of his career?

Well, according to the man himself, it is only the second-best 'W' he has ever earned.

Speaking in the aftermath of his clinical triumph, Joshua pointed out that his stunning win over Wladimir Klitschko was still his number one favourite so far.

Now, attention will undoubtedly turn to AJ's next opponents with the titanic rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder lurking on the horizon.

However, they may both have to wait, as, before the dust had even settled on the 'Battle in the Dunes'  Joshua had been ordered to take-on Oleksander Usyk by the WBO.

While that would still be one hell of a coming together, you just know that boxing fans all over the world are craving something else.

Can we just get Joshua in the ring with Wilder or Fury, already?
