The pair are back at it once again with something to prove, this time clashing in Saudi Arabia at the newly built Diriyah Arena.
Anthony Joshua will look to avenge his seventh-round knockout loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. and reclaim the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, while Ruiz will try to prove he can beat AJ again when the two tango in a highly anticipated rematch on Dec. 7 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, live on DAZN.
Ruiz made history when he stepped in to replace Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller as Joshua’s opponent at Madison Square Garden on June 1. But the U.S. debut for the then-unbeaten Joshua didn’t go as planned as Ruiz pulled himself up from the canvas after a third-round knockdown and went on to drop the 2012 Olympic gold medalist four times before earning a shocking TKO stoppage in Round 7.
The stakes are incredibly high for both fighters as they each seek their slice of heavyweight supremacy. Ruiz aims to silence the naysayers who suggested that he got lucky against an opponent who made the mistake of overlooking him, while Joshua looks to prove that lightning won’t strike twice.
It’s arguably the most anticipated rematch in heavyweight boxing over the past decade as the result will have a massive impact on the division.
