WATCH NOW: AJ on Ruiz Fight, Fighting Back and Reclaiming Titles

It was heavyweight boxing’s biggest upset, since Buster Douglas dethroned Mike Tyson 29 years earlier, as the unified champion Anthony Joshua relinquished his belts to a late replacement Andy Ruiz last June.

The relatively unknown American-Mexican fighter – with just one loss on his record to Joseph Parker – sent shock waves through the heavyweight division, by recovering from an early knockdown to earn a seventh round stoppage at the MSG in New York.

Speaking exclusively to JD Sports, Joshua took time to relive the events surrounding the New York experience and share his key insights from inside the ring.

Tune into the video below to see AJ reflect on that historic night, and look forward to making amends in the rematch:
