Any thoughts of Anthony Joshua facing Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury will have to be put on hold thanks to Andy Ruiz Jr.'s shocking upset of the British boxer Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York and before a global audience on DAZN.

Fresh off Ruiz's monumental seventh-round TKO of Joshua to become the new unified heavyweight champion of the world, Wilder and Fury didn't hesitate to chime in with their thoughts.

Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, blasted AJ, who suffered four knockdowns en route to losing his titles.

Fury, on the other hand, offered Joshua words of encouragement following his shocking loss.

After Wilder and Fury battled to a draw in December, both fighters asserted that they were the best heavyweights over Joshua. Saturday night's shocking result seems to give those thoughts credence, at least for now.

Of course, Wilder and Fury were just a few from the boxing community and beyond to weigh in on the massive upset.
