I’ll End Anthony Joshua Career In Saudi Arabia -Ruiz Jr

Andy Ruiz Jr has vowed to “end Anthony Joshua’s career in the desert”, confirming the Saudi Arabia rematch for the first time.

The Mexican world champion took to Twitter on Saturday morning to publicly announce his agreement for the December 7 fight in the Middle East

“I dethroned the king June 1st and made history becoming the first Mexican/American champion of the world,” wrote Ruiz Jr, who initially demanded the fight take place in the United States.

“I’m looking forward to ending his career in the desert. I will show the greatness of Mexican boxing in Saudi Arabia.”

Ruiz Jr, who stunned Joshua with a seventh-round knockout at Madison Square Garden in June, was reluctant to fight in the UK as he felt it was “unfair”, according to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn.

‘The Destroyer’ downed the 2012 Olympic gold medallist four times in front of a sell-out crowd in New York, inflicting the first defeat of Joshua’s career to become the first Mexican world heavyweight champion.
