Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz 2 Betting tips
This is a clash of titans. One for the history books and something is sure to go down as the top fights of this century. Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz are set to face each other in Diriyah for a second time this year. It was just five months back when Ruiz put Joshua on his back after 4 knockout punches across 7 rounds.
Joshua is now fighting with everything on the line. Before Ruiz, he was the undefeated world heavyweight champion. After the disaster night in New York, he is being questioned about being one of the greats. Can he reach the heights set by Muhamad Ali? Can he become the best? It all comes down to how he picks himself up after a loss.
No more betting odds favouring him heavily. People made a lot of money when they bet on Ruiz because he was the undisputed underdog in the previous fixture. Almost nobody gave him a chance against the 6 feet 5-inch juggernaut who has bulldozed his way through far bigger opponents his entire career. But somehow, Ruiz brought out the killer punch. The one deadly swing that put Joshua on his knees not once, not twice but four times!
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are due to fight at the start of 2020 and another defeat could leave Joshua with a long wait to face either, having once seemed destined for unification bout.
Joshua-Ruiz 2 takes place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on December 7.
Backstory Of The Fight
As 2019 draws to a close, one of the biggest clashes in boxing history approaches. Andy Ruiz Jr shocked the world on 1st June at Madison Square Garden, dropping Anthony Joshua, the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world, four times on his way to a stunning TKO victory in the seventh round.
To say the rematch is a career-defining fight for the 30-year-old from Watford is an understatement. If he loses he can kiss goodbye to a potential unification fight against Deontay Wilder or a UK blockbuster event against Tyson Fury, instead he will need to start again from the beginning and rebuild his once pristine reputation.
Andy Ruiz was a massive underdog before that incredible night New York City, nobody gave him a chance in becoming the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion of te world. Instead, what transpired was one of the most iconic moments in boxing history.
He picked himself up off the canvas (for the first time in his career) to produce not one, but two knockdowns in the *same* round to turn the fight completely on its head. By the time Ruiz knocked him down twice more and the referee stopped the fight after 1 minute 33 seconds of the seventh round, everybody in MSG and watching around the world was in complete shock.
Speculation surrounded the Joshua camp for weeks after the fight, what happened in the changing room before the fight? Did he have a panic attack in his dressing room? Why was his ring-walk so late? Why didn’t he look himself? What was AJ’s father saying to Eddie Hearn after the fight?
Why did he keep spitting his gum-shield out? AJ has since addressed these questions simply by saying the better man won, this happens in boxing and he will become a two-time heavyweight champion of the world.
