Qué Momento – Andy Ruiz Jr: Corazón de Campeón (Part 1)
On June 1st, 2019 at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York, unknown and pudgy heavy weight boxer Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the world by defeating world champion Anthony Joshua, making boxing history by becoming the first Mexican heavyweight champion of the world.
A true underdog story, Ruiz was the 3rd choice to fight Britain’s Joshua and came in as a replacement only a month prior to the fight. Beating 15 -1 odds, Ruiz proved to all you can’t judge a book by its cover when he stripped away Joshua’s 3 titles by TKO on the 7th round becoming the Unified WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion of the world.
Now loved by millions of fans around the world, this is the story of how a bullied shy boy with the heart of a champion from Imperial, California became the man who gave the sport of boxing on of its biggest upsets in modern history.
