Anthony Joshua showed up to regain his heavyweight world title belts in Saudi Arabia.
Six months after his defeat at the hands of opponent Andy Ruiz Jr., the English boxer took home the win by unanimous decision in the rematch between the two fighters. Per the scorecards, England’s Steve Gray scored the match 119-109 while United States representative Glen Feldman and Canadian judge Benoit Russell both scored the match 118-110 all in favor of Joshua.
“Man, the first time was so nice — I had to do it twice,” Joshua said post-match via ESPN. “A man like me don’t make no excuses, my boy [heavyweight contender] Dereck Chisora said I could do this if I am ready to die. And look, this is about boxing. I am used to knocking guys out.
