The Best Memes of Andy Ruiz Jr.'s Knockout of Anthony Joshua

Nobody thought to give Andy Ruiz
Jr.
a shot when he stepped up to face Anthony Joshua in a
heavyweight title boxing match on five weeks’ notice. Standing at
6’2″ and a rotund 262 pounds, Ruiz hardly looked like a threat to
the 6’6″, perpetually chiseled and dangerous Joshua. Before his
seventh-round knockout loss to Ruiz on Saturday, June 1 at Madison
Square Garden, the British boxing powerhouse boasted 22 wins, zero
losses, and 21 knockouts.

Joshua was originally set to face
Jarrell Miller
, but “Big Baby” failed a drug test, which
was reported in late April. It seemed as though nobody wanted to
step up to challenge the 248-pound Joshua on such short
notice—except Ruiz. With a 31-1-0 record prior to Saturday’s
bout, Ruiz could hardly be considered a sleeper, but OddsShark
still had him as a
+1100 underdog
(bet $100, win $1,100).

It was in the seventh round that Ruiz proved that he’s every
inch the champion, stopping Joshua and winning the WBA, WBO, and
IBF world titles. With this win comes two things: 1)
Drizzy
will probably never score a photo op with an athlete
again, and 2) Ruiz is the first heavyweight world champion to come
from Mexican descent.

And with this shocking upset also comes a barrage of hilarious
Internet memes. Check out the list we’ve curated below.
