Just over six months after Andy Ruiz Jr. burst onto the scene with a stunning upset of Anthony Joshua, the heavyweights do battle again in a rematch for the unified heavyweight title Ruiz won in June.
Knocking out Joshua turned Ruiz into an overnight sensation, and that relative lack of pedigree has increased the buzz around the rematch by adding an air of unpredictability.
Joshua first became world heavyweight champion in 2014, picking up belts along the way before becoming the unified champion in March 2018. Ruiz had lost his only world championship bout in 2016.
There’s controversy surrounding the decision to hold the rematch in Saudi Arabia, due to the country’s history of human rights violations, some of which are ongoing. But promoter Eddie Hearn views the profits and potential long-term benefits of opening the Middle Eastern boxing market worth the unsavoriness of, for example, the ring being relocated after the fight to one of the palaces of Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who will be in attendance Saturday.
Here’s a guide to find the Andy Ruiz vs. Anthony Joshua fight, no matter what device you are using to access DAZN.
