Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua 2: Round-by-round breakdown as Joshua claims landslide victory in Saudi Arabia

Ruiz, who looked out of shape when he stunned Joshua at Madison Square Garden earlier this year to win the titles, came into this weekend’s event a full 15 pounds heavier than he did for their first fight, while Joshua had trimmed down noticeably and dropped a fair amount of muscle bulk for the rematch.

The difference was stark on fight night, with Joshua working on the outside, bouncing around, sticking and moving, while the hapless Ruiz just attempted to plod forward in vain hope of landing one big shot.
