I shall return, Joshua vows after defeat

Twenty- Nine years old Anthony Joshua who was dethroned on Saturday night by an unknown fighter Andy Ruiz, said he will soon take back his heavy weight crown.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Joshua, 29, said: “Boxing is a tough sport, but I train hard and I got beaten by a good fighter.

“It will be interesting to see how far he goes, but this is all part of the journey.

“Congratulations to the first Mexican heavyweight champion. We bounce back.

“I’m a fighter by heart, boxer by trade, it has got people talking and there’s more life in the heavyweight division.

“This is the risk we take, every fighter deserves respect so congratulations to him.

“I respect every fighter, this is all part of the legacy, it’s how strong I came back.

“He’s a champion for now, I shall return.”

The result ranks alongside 33/1 shot Buster Douglas’ stunning KO victory against Mike Tyson back in 1990 which stunned the boxing world.

California-based Ruiz, 29, took the fight on short notice, after a handful of dimwitted potential rivals turned it down, and pulled off the most amazing of upsets.
