Since then, Gvozdyk has become one of the best boxers in the sport and is undefeated in his first 17 fights.

Coming into his fight tonight with Andy Ruiz Jr., Anthony Joshua had never been defeated in a professional fight.

He carried a perfect 22-0 record into the night, with 21 of those victories coming via the knockout.

Well, Ruiz Jr. ended up being the one who got the knockout win tonight, as he shocked everyone by handing Joshua his first ever loss.

Ruiz was awarded the TKO after Joshua tried to return to his corner in the middle of the round and was not engaging with the referee.

By winning this fight, Ruiz took all four of Joshua’s heavyweight titles and is the first fighter of Mexican descent to be a heavyweight champion.

What makes this all the more impressive is the fact that this was not even supposed to be Ruiz’ fight. Jarrell Miller was on the card opposite Joshua, but he failed drug tests making him ineligible to fight.

Ruiz stepped up in short notice and took the fight and ended up pulling off one of the biggest upsets in recent history.

There has been a lot of talk recently about the resurgence of the heavyweight division in boxing. This is because Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and Joshua all have been establishing themselves as household names in the sport.

All of sudden, Ruiz has put his name in the same conversation with those elite boxers.

Hopefully we get to see many more fights between those big names in the coming years, so that boxing can truly return to prominence.
