AJ vs Ruiz jr Live stream : Anthony Joshua faces a make-or-break rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr to reclaim his four world heavyweight belts in Saudi Arabia. Wearing a black sombrero on his head and a big grin on his face, Andy Ruiz Jr. looked like a guy who wants to keep the party going.
He was back in New York, where he changed not only his life but the entire heavyweight boxing picture in June by stunning Anthony Joshua to win three title belts.
The 29-year-old British star was stunned by Ruiz when the pair met at Madison Square Garden in June.
Joshua was knocked down four times by the Mexican fighter – who was 25/1 with many bookies going into the fight – before the fight was called off in the seventh round.
Ruiz now holds the IBF, WBO, IBO and WBA (Super) Heavyweight title belts, but Joshua will be keen to grab them all back in one piece when the pair step back into the ring in December.

Even though Ruiz, 29, is the champ, original terms agreed before he shocked the world and battered Joshua in June means he could take home half of what AJ does from the dust up in the desert.
And now, according to The Athletic, Ruiz “isn’t expected to sign off on the rematch in Saudi Arabia unless he’s guaranteed a significantly higher purse”.
Underdog champion Ruiz refused to travel to the UK to rematch Joshua, voicing concerns after Dillian Whyte was cleared to box Oscar Rivas last month despite an “adverse finding” in a pre-fight drug test.
