Andy Ruiz Jr has vowed to end Anthony Joshua’s career after finally agreeing to defend his heavyweight world titles in Saudi Arabia.

Ruiz stunned Joshua in New York in June to rip away the Brit’s three belts at Madison Square Garden.

He was contractually obliged to offer Joshua a rematch with the dethroned champion opting for the desert on December 7.

But Ruiz expressed concerns about travelling to Saudi Arabia, forcing Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn to begin legal action.


A deal has been reached however, with Ruiz seeing his purse increased to almost $10million.

And he said on social media: “I’m excited to announce my rematch with Anthony Joshua.

“In the first fight I made history and became the first ever Mexican/American heavyweight champion of the world.

“I am grateful to Saudi Arabia for inviting me. I took it to AJ in ‘The Big Apple’ and I’m looking forward to ending his career in the Desert. Don’t miss this fight.


“I will show the greatness of Mexican boxing in Saudi Arabia and in every corner of the world. Viva Mexico!”

Joshua and Ruiz are expected to come face-to-face at three press conferences in the first week of September in Saudi Arabia, New York and London.

Hearn said: “There has been a lot of talk about where this fight would be held.

“For us we wanted to go somewhere that believed in the sport of boxing, who had a vision.

“We have to realise there is a world outside of Cardiff and Madison Square Garden. This event could change boxing forever. You could be seeing a big change in the dynamics of the sport.”
