The first time was so nice, I had to do it twice, Joshua says, as he celebrates reclaiming his titles

Anthony Joshua reclaimed his world heavyweight crown from Andy Ruiz on Saturday.

After suffering a knockout defeat to Ruiz in New York in June, which proceeded to regain his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in emphatic fashion.

Dominating from the outset, Joshua won by margins of 118-110 on two scorecards with the third judge making it 119-109.

Joshua, badly stung by his defeat to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden, was ecstatic and  decided to take on Andy Ruiz Jr.

Speaking on his victory, Joshua said:  “I wanted to put on a boxing masterclass.”

“First of all, thanks to god. The first time was so nice, I had to do it twice,” he said. 

“I knew I could win this. This is about boxing, I’m used to knocking guys out.

“I gave the man his credit, I said I would correct myself, I respect Andy, But I wanted to put on a boxing masterclass.

“It’s the sweet science, it’s about hitting and not getting hit.

“No change in mentalist, stay hungry and stay humble. I’m going to remain humble in victory. Thanks to Ruiz and his family, thanks to Saudi, the fans and thanks to god and Eddie Hearn.”
