Anthony Joshua defeats Andy Ruiz Jr – On Saturday, December 7,  Anthony Joshua reclaimed the world heavyweight championship in Saudi Arabia by handsomely defeating Andy Ruiz Jr over 12 rounds.

Joshua gained revenge for his nightmare in New York earlier this year, when he fell four times in defeat to Ruiz Jr, by winning a unanimous decision in their rematch and clawing back the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.
This time in Diriyah, in a purpose-built 15,000-seat arena, there had been a downpour in the desert but a disaster for Joshua was averted by his most disciplined and controlled performance to date.

Two scores of 118-110 and another of 119-109 meant the world titles returned to Joshua, who celebrated with his family and embraced Ruiz Jr after the decision.
