The British boxer, Anthony Joshua has beaten up Andy Ruiz Jr to reclaim the belts he lost to his Mexican-American opponent in New York in June.
Anthony Joshua became a two-time world heavyweight champion with a unanimous points victory over Andy Ruiz Jr in a tense rematch in Saudi Arabia.
The hotly-anticipated bout in was threatened by delay after a rare desert rainstorm rolled in just moments before the action got underway, but it went ahead as planned and Joshua took full advantage.
Six months on from the night Ruiz stunned boxing, Joshua risked seeing his career left in tatters with a second defeat, but served up 36 minutes of movement and well-timed punching to take the IBF, WBA and WBO titles back to Britain.
Joshua, 30, stuck to his back-foot game plan to pick off a clear 118-110 (twice), 119-109 verdict, resisting the urge to charge into battle with Ruiz to secure a composed triumph.
His win was greeted with roars of approval from the capacity of 16,000 crowds inside the Diriyah Arena, which was constructed in just two months for the event.
