Initially would be Joshua in Madison Square Garden against Miller, but that last one tested positive on the banned fat burner GW1516. Eddie Hearn, promoter of Joshua, had to find a replacement and finally came out at Ruiz. Not a valetudinarian. The 29-year-old American was 33 times in the ring and lost only one time.
The unbeaten Joshua has won to date are 22 parties, of which no less than 21 on knock-out. The Brit owns the kampioenengordels of the unions, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO. Only the WBC belt is still missing. In the opening act of the titelkamp in the king's class is Delfine Person across the Irish Katie Taylor to see who the best lightweight in the women.
