A late replacement and massive underdog, Andy Ruiz Jr. just shook up the world.

Ruiz (33-1, 22 KOs) spoiled the long-awaited U.S. debut of unified heavyweight champion and British star Anthony Joshua to score four knockdowns and record a spectacular upset via seventh-round TKO at Madison Square Garden.

Not only did Ruiz get up off the canvas early in Round 3 in order to do what oddsmakers felt was nearly impossible, he showed tremendous poise, power and fearlessness in systematically dismantling Joshua (22-1, 21 KOs) to flip the heavyweight division upside down.

I only watched the 7th round (just now) but that seemed like a questionable stoppage at best.

Joshua's a peak athlete with a great chin, tons of heart, and good punching technique, but hoo boy is he hittable. Finally caught up with him in this fight. Interested to see how he'll respond and adapt - or not :)
