Mexican-American boxer and WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. and UK’s Anthony Joshua attended a presentation event in Riyadh’s Central Mall on Monday, ahead of their heavyweight showdown scheduled on December 7.
“I’ll shake his hand you know. We are gonna fight anyway, so may the best man win. That’s the sportsmanship, but come that bell, I’m going to take his head off,” said Joshua at the event.
Ruiz stunned the sporting world with his against-all-odds knockout of the Briton in New York City’s Madison Square Garden back in June.
“We had a longer preparation for this fight than June 1st. So we are ready, we are confident and we are all prepared for December 7th,” said Ruiz, who lost weight ahead of the encounter, adding that he is “more ready than ever.”
The fight, titled ‘Clash of the Dunes’ set for December 7 in Diriyah, is a rematch of the June encounter which shook the boxing world with Ruiz Jr. defeating Joshua and will be the first heavyweight world title fight ever held in the Middle East.
