Anthony Joshua wins rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.


British boxer Anthony Joshua won his world heavyweight title rematch against Andy Ruiz Junior by unanimous decision in Saudi Arabia.

He reclaims the WBA, IBF and WBO belts he lost in June.

The fight, dubbed the “Clash on the Dunes" was judged 118-10, 118-110 and 119-109 in Joshua’s favour.

Ruiz produced one of the sport's biggest shocks when he beat Joshua in New York six months ago.
