The stunning comeback of Anthony Joshua reaffirms the fact that winners are not those who are too strong to fail or fall; it is rather those who possess the ability to dust themselves up and rise again each time they fail or fall, because failure sometimes occur even to winners.
– Festus Keyamo
Anthony Joshua and ‘Man United’ can just make everything okay today.

Anthony Joshua. Great mentality. He took his loss well. He didn’t blame anyone. He didn’t say anyone imposed Ruiz Jr on him. He focused, trained harder, switched strategy and came back with a master class tactical victory!
Anthony Joshua showed a extreme discipline and ring IQ throughout the fight. Learnt the lessons of the last fight, worked on it and grew massively. Joshua is back to the top. Heavyweight Champion again!
Anthony Joshua boxed him to perfection! Outstanding discipline and ring IQ. Learned the lessons of the last fight and that bodes well for future contests. Heavyweight Champion again!

Congratulations to Anthony Joshua as the unified two time heavyweight champion of the world.
Anthony Joshua came with a masterclass tactics and it worked for him. He chose Floyd Mayweather tactics and it helped him reclaim his belt. I’m so happy for him.
