Anthony Joshua 'doesn't remember anything after the third round', says Eddie Hearn

Almost 1m Kenyans used pirated channels to watch Joshua v Ruiz fight

The fight would reportedly take place in the United Kingdom, probably in Wembley Stadium which has been Joshua's previous venue of choice.

Anthony Joshua waits during the referee's count after he was knocked down during the seventh round of a heavyweight championship boxing match against Andy Ruiz on Saturday, June 1, 2019, in NY. Hearn drops hints that Ruiz won't be getting what he wants.

"It's been done many different times by many different fighters".

"He did it that night and I don't think he will come back from it".

"Ask any top trainer who has been around the sport a lifetime".

An immediate rematch anyway, which is expected to be in Cardiff in November or December, or even back at Madison Square Garden, according to promoter Eddie Hearn. "If they want me to go over there, they've gotta give me $50million".

The Briton, whose fight with Schwarz is the first of a multi-fight broadcast deal agreed with ESPN in February, is the only boxer Wilder has faced and not defeated.

It's the first time that the former world champion will be in the ring since his draw with Wilder and should he get past the German and the Bronze Bomber beat Luis Ortiz later this year then the pair will meet in 2020 for the second time.

Speaking of Love Island, he said: "Well, it's not something I can say I watch ever". What were people seeing? The result is a blow for the British heavyweight, who had plans to force a fight with either Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

"The best feeling I got from it was the two best conditioned fighters in the last 20 years have been (Wladimir) Klitschko (who Fury beat in 2015) and Joshua and they both got done by two fat men".
