Recall that Joshua reclaimed his titles from Andy Ruiz Jr, a Mexican boxer, six months after the Nigerian-born-boxer lost the titles.

Ruiz had won the match in Madison Square, New York, while Joshua reclaimed the tiles in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia in December 2019.

The judges unanimously adjudged Joshua winner over Ruiz Jr and made history by winning the first world heavyweight title bout in the Middle East.

The 30-year-old now has his WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO heavyweight titles back.
