In a truly remarkable fight at New York's Madison Square Garden, Ruiz floored Joshua four times en route to a seventh-round stoppage, which stunned this famous arena and handed the Briton his first defeat as a professional.
Joshua was a 1-25 favourite with bookmakers, with 22 wins - 21 by knockout - going into the fight. He will now join the likes of Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson as dominant champions to suffer losses which brought the sport to a standstill.
"I got beaten by a good fighter," said 29-year-old Joshua. "It will be interesting to see how far he goes, but this is all part of the journey.
"He's a champion for now, I SHALL RETURN!!!!."
