Clueless boxing fans have accused Anthony Joshua of "running" away from Andy Ruiz Jr as he reclaimed the heavyweight world titles.

He employed a hit-and-move strategy to outpoint the Mexican-American, but his tactics didn't go down well with casual boxing fans who slammed the Brit's performance.

"Joshua ran a marathon all fight. I respect the strategy but it's extremely boring to watch. Tap and run all night. No real punches. Whatever gets you the W though," one social media user wrote.

Another added: "What a boring fight, Joshua running and holding Ruiz all rounds. Ruiz robbed and Joshua is a heavy weight fraud."

'AJ's now a two-time heavyweight world champion after recapturing the WBA (super), IBF and WBO titles.
