Sumptuous odds for the venue of the Joshua-Ruiz rematch fight from Sky Bets
2 September 2019
For many, the shock of the year was Andy Ruiz beating Anthony Joshua to the world heavyweight belts. All over the world, Ruiz was completely underrated being a last-minute mandatory challenger. Many had expected Anthony Joshua to take Ruiz for pancakes and breeze through – sort of a quick rehearsal against a possible Wilder encounter.
However, the chubby Mexican had other plans and had gotten Joshua’s back on the deck four times by the seventh round, dismissing the eminent Joshua with a KO! Who would believe that? Strange things happen though.
Fast forward to the reality, Joshua is trying to pick back the pieces and make a compensation for the shocking universal embarrassment in a Joshua-Ruiz rematch fight. However, both parties seem to be at odds for the venue of the rematch. Ruiz’s team have repeatedly rejected fighting the rematch in England possibly in fear of possible home advantage and have canvassed for combating the Joshua-Ruiz rematch on neutral grounds.
New York and Saudi Arabia are fast emerging as the favored destination as Eddie Hearn energetically searches all through his neutral options. New York is a preferred destination bearing in mind the US streaming service DAZN. The likes of Madison Square, Wembley, Las Vegas, Nigeria, and even Hong Kong are yet being touted as secondary alternatives.
