What music will Anthony Joshua walk out to? His past ring walks as AJ gears up for huge showdown against Andy Ruiz Jr

Anthony Joshua will be out to reclaim his world heavyweight titles when he goes toe-to-toe with Andy Ruiz Jr next weekend.

The 30-year-old lost his belts in dramatic fashion last summer and will return to the ring on Saturday, December 7 looking to save his career.

Before his shock defeat to Ruiz Jr, AJ enjoyed a string of stunning wins and put on huge shows at Wembley and Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

From being rapped into the squared circle by Stormzy to walking out to classic anthems, Joshua’s past ringwalks have been very special.

It’s not known what he’ll walk out to in Saudi Arabia yet but he’ll likely produce another big entrance as he sets about returning to winning ways.

Here’s what Joshua has opted for as his ringwalks in the past.


Joshua used ‘Ye’ by Burna Boy as his entrance theme for that loss to Ruiz Jr at the world’s most famous Madison Square Garden.

Burna Boy is from Nigeria, a country that AJ has close links to and often visits.


In Joshua’s round seven KO against Alexander Povetkin in September 2018, the Brit had UK recording artist Nines rap his tune ‘I See You Shining’.

The rapper performed as Joshua appeared in front of the Wembley crowd before beginning his walk to the ring.


Joshua’s biggest career win came against Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017 and the Watford-born fighter walked to the ring to the sound of The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’.

It has now become an famous tune for AJ with fans adapting their own version of ‘Oh Anthony Joshua’.


On the night Joshua made the first defence of his IBF heavyweight title by beating Dominic Breazeale in June 2016, he walked to the ring with Giggs’ ‘Talking da Hardest’.

Giggs did not perform the British Grime classic live but Joshua made the ringwalk with the song playing all the way through.

Anthony Joshua knocked out Dillian Whyte in 2015


Popular rapper Stormzy accompanied Joshua to the ring before he claimed his key win over Brit rival Dillian Whyte at The O2 Arena in December 2015.

Stormzy preformed a variation of ‘Big For Your Boots’ live to the sellout crowd.


In 2014, AJ walked to the ring against Michael Sprott to the sound of Oxide & Neutrino’s ‘Bound 4 da Reload’.

The ringwalk lasted longer than the fight as AJ knocked out his fellow Brit in the first round.
