About Andy Ruiz

Andy Ruiz scored one of the biggest upsets the boxing world has ever seen when he beat the heavy favorite, Anthony Joshua, by TKO to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles, all in one jab. In doing so, he catapulted to the top of the boxing world, and became the first boxer of Mexican heritage to become the heavyweight world champion. Andy’s unexpected win rocketed him to instant social media fame, quickly shooting to over 1M+ followers on Instagram and another 180K+ Twitter fans, even teaming up with YouTube channel Dank City to film a series "A Day In The Life" as he prepared for the highly anticipated ANthony Joshua rematch.
