Andy Ruiz Jr Hilariously Pictured With Snickers Belt He Received For Beating Anthony Joshua

Snickers lover Andy Ruiz Jr has now added an exclusive new title to his growing collection of belts after receiving a "special package."

The 29-year-old Mexican-American boxer took to Instagram to show off his amazing Snickers-themed championship.

"The Snickers heavyweight champion of the world has arrived in Mexico," he wrote as the caption.

Following on from the Destroyer's stunning display against Anthony Joshua, Snickers tweeted out a celebratory message: "Congrats again on the upset, [Andy Ruiz]! Victory is sweet, but so is the package we are sending you."

Now Snickers has delivered on its promise and fans absolutely loved the belt.

"Awesome! Coolest belt. Have fun," one fan wrote.

Someone else said: "[Snickers], let's get this commercial going ASAP. [Andy Ruiz] is a natural behind the camera."

A third wrote: "Snickers gonna have my boy inn [sic] a commercial coming soon. You heard it from me first."

A fourth added: "This is class."

Ruiz hasn't been shy about showing off his love for Snickers in the past.

The boxer once had the Snickers logo as the header for his Twitter profile, while he also appeared on Inside PBC Boxing in April with several chocolate bars.

And Ruiz admitted ahead of his bout with AJ that his love for the chocolate came when he was growing up.

"My dad's been giving me Snickers since I was six years old," he told the Sportsman.

"When I first turned amateur when I was seven years old, my dad started giving it to me.

"Best believe I'm going to be eating it before my fight with [AJ]."

Ruiz stunned fans after scoring a seventh-round TKO win at Madison Square Garden and stripped AJ of the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts.

But the 29-year-old Brit will have his chance for redemption after Eddie Hearn said that his rematch clause had been activated.

A venue and date have not been confirmed, but the rematch is expected to take place sometime in November or December.

Should Ruiz bring his Snickers championship to the rematch?

Let us know in the comments.
