On Saturday night in front of a packed house at Madison Square Garden, Andy Ruiz did the unthinkable when he defeated Anthony Joshua to become the heavyweight champion by way of TKO.
As you can imagine, the internet exploded. Here are some of the best reactions:
He wasn’t a true champion. His whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts.
Facts and now we know who was running from who!!!!#TilThisDay

I know first hand the toughness of the Mexican chin.
They come up off the floor like something out of thriller.
It is never over until it’s over with the Mexicans.
God bless them.
