WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KO’s) got a new opponent.
In debut fight in the US on 1 June at “Madison Square garden” in new York city, Joshua had to fight with Darrellom Miller (23-0-1, 22 KO’s), but he failed a doping test and was eliminated from the battle.
Instead Miller Joshua the first day of summer in new York will meet with Andy Ruiz, Jr. (32-1, 21 KO’s). Officially this fight is not yet confirmed, but the British promoter Eddie Hearn has made no secret that the choice is made.
“I couldn’t afford to choose a boxer who was not good enough or couldn’t please the fans. I have no doubt that Ruiz craves and will strive to become a world champion,” commented the opponent’s choice promoter Joshua.
Ruiz Jr. on Pro-ring acts since 2009. The only defeat the opponent, Joshua suffered in December 2016, losing in close combat to Joseph Parker for the vacant WBO title. In March last year, Joshua Parker stopped and took the belt version of the world Boxing organization.
Anthony Joshua last fight in September last year knocked out Alexander Povetkin. Andy Ruiz a week ago, ahead of dealing with the former Ukrainian Alexander Dimitrenko.
