Saudi Arabia to host Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz Jr’s rematch Dec 7

Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr’s rematch will take place in Saudi Arabia, live on Sky Sports Box Office on Saturday December 7.

Ruiz Jr (33-1, 22 KOs) stunned Joshua to capture his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in one of the biggest heavyweight upsets of all time at a sold-out Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1.

In doing so, ‘The Destroyer’ created history by becoming the first boxer of Mexican heritage to be crowned world heavyweight champion.

The California-based Mexican headed into his second world title shot as a huge underdog but proceeded to shock the world by flooring Joshua four times en route to a monumental seventh-round stoppage win that halted Joshua’s quest to become the undisputed heavyweight king.
