DISASTER struck for Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden, as Andy Ruiz Jnr pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of boxing to become the unified WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion.

In what was expected to be a Stateside showcase for the previously undefeated Joshua on his US debut, the unheralded Ruiz completely flipped the script by knocking the defending titlist down four times to secure a quite incredible victory.

An estimated 8,000 expectant British fans had made the trip across the Atlantic to support Joshua in his first professional bout outside of the UK, and you would have been hard-pressed to find a single one who envisaged anything other than a Joshua win. Little did they know, but history was set to be made in New York.
