JOSHUA AND RUIZ SHAKING HANDS STORY: Boxers Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr. weighed in at Madison Square Garden on Friday (May 31) in advance of their fight in New York on Saturday (Saturday June 1).

Heavyweight world champion Joshua will be defending his titles against California-based Mexican-American Ruiz.

Joshua weighed in at 247.8 pounds.

Ruiz weighed in at 268 pounds.

"Tomorrow night, I put the titles in the air and they're up for grabs.

And me and him go to war.

So the best man wins," Joshua said.

"I want to become the first Mexican heavyweight.

I want to make history," Ruiz said.

Joshua, the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world champion, had been scheduled to fight American Jarrell Miller but the New York State Athletic Commission refused to sanction the fight after Miller failed a drugs test.

The fight will be 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion Joshua's first title bout outside of Britain.

The 29-year-old has a professional record of 22 wins, which includes 21 knockouts.

Ruiz, also 29, has a record of 32 wins, 21 by knockout, and one defeat - his loss coming in a majority decision against New Zealander Joseph Parker in Auckland in 2016 for the vacant WBO belt.

Parker then lost that title to Joshua in a unanimous points decision in Cardiff in March last year.
