Andy Ruiz Jr celebrates after his stunning seventh round TKO win over Anthony Joshua in NY.

The fight with Ruiz, which stripped him of three hard-earned title belts, marked Joshua's first loss in his professional boxing career, and only the second time he has ever been knocked out.

After the fight, Fury had sent a message on Twitter that urged his fellow Briton to "rest up, recover, regroup and come again".

"He did it that night and I don't think he will come back from it". Finished. Ask any top trainer who has been around the sport a lifetime.

Here's what Ruiz recently said to Fighthub about wanting $50 million to fight AJ in the UK: "If they want me to go over there, they've got to give me $50 million dollars".

He has been charged with the illegal possession of a BB gun , carrying a risky weapon and disorderly conduct. The name of the man arrested after police found a firearm near him was not immediately released.

"Everybody thought that man could beat me". What were people seeing? He doesn't say what that means in terms of the $50 million that Ruiz is demanding for him to fight Joshua in the United Kingdom, but it's quite possible that the money is already spelled out in the rematch clause. The fact he knocked out a fighter like Joshua, who I had seen on television and in person against Joseph Parker, it shocked me.

Fury added: "Physically Joshua could out-train everyone".

"He would break every heart monitor, has probably worn out every treadmill in the gym, smashes the bag, it's all very unimportant". If you can fight you can fight, if you can't you can forget about it.

Joshua's defeat has also scuppered plans for the British boxer to fight Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, at least according to Wilder's promoter Bob Arum, who said that American audiences wouldn't pay to see that right now.
