Anthony Joshua has vowed to get his belts back after calling his sensational heavyweight world-title defeat by Andy Ruiz Jr a “minor setback”.
Joshua, 29, was floored four times as Ruiz defied underdog status to win in seven rounds and deliver a true shock to the sport at Madison Square Garden.
He said: “It’s a test of character. I’ll see what is next and move on.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn said a rematch is a “must win” because Joshua’s options will be “nothing after that”.
