Look: Andy Ruiz Jr wears Knicks jersey to press conference after huge upset win
Andy Ruiz Jr may have won himself a few more fans beyond just Saturday’s shocking upset over Anthony Joshua.
After stunning the previously undefeated Joshua by seventh-round TKO to win the heavyweight title in dramatic fashion, Ruiz showed up to his post-fight press conference wearing a New York Knicks jersey. Rob Perez of The Action Network shared video.

Saturday’s bout took place at Madison Square Garden. Coincidentally, Knicks free agent target Kyrie Irving was also in attendance for the fight.

For what it’s worth, the Boston Celtics are reportedly skeptical about their chances of keeping Irving. If the Knicks want to get their sales pitch started early, it certainly can’t hurt to have the new heavyweight champion of the world in their corner.
