American boxing fans are just days a way from getting to see one of the world’s best boxers fight on U.S. soil.
Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and his WBA (Super), IBF and WBO championship belts are up for grabs against Andy Ruiz Jr. when the fighters make their Madison Square Garden debuts on Saturday, June 1, a fight live and exclusively on DAZN.
Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) enters the ring for the first time in nearly nine months after defeating Alexander Povetkin on Sept. 22 by way of a seventh round TKO. The victory restarted Joshua’s knockout streak that was ended in his unanimous decision win over Joseph Parker in March 2018, the only bout of Joshua’s professional career to go to the judges’ cards.
Ruiz (32-1, 21 KOs) is taking the fight on short notice after Jarrell Miller failed multiple drug tests and had his name removed from the card in April. “The Destroyer” brings over 140 amateur and professional bout experience to the ring and has the opportunity to be the first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent. His only professional loss came in 2016 to parker.
