Undefeated WBA/IBF/WBO World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua held a public workout in downtown Manhattan ahead of Saturday’s bout.
Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) will take on contender Andy Ruiz Jr. (32-1, 21 KOs) at Madison Square Garden, live on DAZN and on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
Ruiz hopes to become the first world heavyweight champion of Mexican descent. Joshua, on the other hand, is looking to make a splash in his U.S. debut, with an eye toward a unification bout versus undefeated WBC World Heavyweight Champion, Deontay Wilder. Wilder, of course, is coming off an impressive KO of the Year candidate two weeks ago, when he decapitated top contender Dominic Breazeale in one round.
