Nigerian British born boxer Anthony Joshua, won back his heavyweight world titles and exacted revenge on Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.

The Brit boxed with far more control than he did six months ago when he was dumped on the canvas four times.

Both men had to overcome cuts around their left eye in the opening stages in Saudi Arabia.

But it was Joshua who produced the more disciplined performance in the desert as he established a comfortable lead by the halfway point.

Ruiz began to work his way into the fight in the second half but was unable to get close enough to land the telling blows.

And the Brit eased through the remainder before being given the nod by all three judges as he once again sits on top of the world.
