Andy Ruiz Jr after beating Anthony Joshua: 'I'm still pinching myself'

Andy Ruiz flattened Anthony Joshua twice in the seventh round and capped one of boxing’s biggest heavyweight upsets on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Ruiz won it at 1:27 by a technical knockout in the seventh round to become the surprise champion in a bout that had shades of Buster Douglas’ upset over Mike Tyson in 1990.

    Hi Andy, you are really a nice person and humble. You defeated the giant heavy weight. I saw your combination and you are not like a heavy weight when you fight. The quickness and the power usually your asset. In boxing, the faster you through punches the more you pressure the opponent. Throwing a lot of combinations will enable you to paralyze the capability of your opponents to counter. I like your style. I hope you maintain humble as you go up to the highest level of your career until retirement. Thumbs up for……
