The recently concluded heavyweight boxing championship gave the world a new boxing champion and its surprisingly not Anthony Joshua as many had expected. It's not no longer news that popular professional boxer, Anthony Joshua, who has been holding 4 world heavyweight champion belts for quite some time, was defected by Andy Ruiz in the recent bout at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden.
The newly emerged winner, Andy Ruiz is an Mexican-American professional boxer who is the newly crowned WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF heavyweight king. Though, Anthony Joshua went home with an aching jaw and a £20m payout, the new champion who now wears the belts, was awarded the sum of £5m (~N1.9 billion). This prize money might pale before Joshua's mammoth pay but totally catapults Andy Ruiz into the millionaire stratosphere. Of course, with money comes changes in homes, clothes and, of course, cars.
