Relentless Andy Ruiz Jr stuns Anthony Joshua with shock TKO in round seven

Joshua down in the seventh and ... and it’s over! Andy Ruiz Jr has knocked out Anthony Joshua!

Joshua lands a bit shot early on but Ruiz meets it, there’s a flurry and down goes Joshua for a third time early in the seventh! Oh dear! Referee Mike Griffin is talking to Joshua in the corner after what appears to be a slip and ... he’s waved it off! Andy Ruiz is the heavyweight champion of the world in one of the biggest upsets in history!

Round 6

Joshua still looking a bit wary of Ruiz’s hand speed and power. He’s content to circle the ring and jab away. A mostly uneventful first half the the round, then Ruiz lands a left on Joshua’s jaw. Then another! Then Joshua ducks under another lunging left hook. Ruiz really letting his hands go.

Round 5

Both men still a bit gun-shy early in the fifth as the fight continues in the familiar pattern of Ruiz chasing and Joshua fighting in a slow retreat. Ruiz missing a pair of big shots early. Joshua lands a counter flush but Ruiz walks right through it. Joshua then wobbles Ruiz with a massive left hook that Ruiz somehow absorbs. Joshua looks fresher here and appears to be waiting for his opening.
