Anthony Joshua reclaimed his belts after his victory over Andy Ruiz even though he had to win the fight via unanimous decision.
In June this year, Anthony Joshua was shocked in New York as he lost for the very first time in his career against Andy Ruiz.
The defeat propelled him for a rematch against Andy Ruiz which he won on Saturday night, December 7. And after his victory over Andy Ruiz, a reporter went to Anthony Joshua to ask him how he feels winning back his titles in a Muslim nation.
