Andy Ruiz accepts Saudi Arabia venue for Anthony Joshua rematch
Finally, the much awaited rematch between Andy Ruiz Jnr and Anthony Joshua will take place in Saudi Arabia.
Ruiz who will be defending his victory in the first bout has now reportedly agreed to fight Joshua in Saudi Arabia for their bout in December.
The world heavyweight champion who defeated Joshua in June to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles originally had ‘security concerns’ about their location for their rematch in the Middle East.
But, after receiving reassurances and a bigger purse than the original figure of £8 million, the fight is now good to go.
The fight between the British-Nigerian former champion and the Mexican-American belts holder billed as the ‘Clash of the Dunes’, will take place on the 7th of December in Diriyah.
