Ruptly is live on Monday, December 2 as British heavyweight Anthony Joshua and his Mexican-American opponent Andy Ruiz Jr. arrive in Diriyah, some 20km (12 miles) from central Riyadh, ahead of their hotly anticipated rematch.
The bout, titled ‘Clash on the Dunes’, will be the first heavyweight world title fight ever held in the Middle East and is set to take place at a custom-built 15,000-capacity arena on Saturday night.
Promoter Eddie Hearn defended the decision to host the clash in Saudi Arabia, saying that moving it outside of boxing’s typical venues could lead to ‘a big change in the dynamics of the sport.’
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. Video ID:
