Saudi Royal Wants Ring From Ruiz vs. Joshua II As Souvenir

Saudi Royal Wants Ring From Ruiz vs. Joshua II As Souvenir

For Joshua, this will be his second professional fight outside of the UK.

Andy Ruiz Jr is determined to avoid adding his name to the list of the heavyweight one-hit wonders whose reigns were swiftly derailed once they succumbed to the trappings of fame.

This much anticipated rematch will take place at the Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

"There is no fear in my heart, no fear in my eyes and I'm really looking forward to putting on a show".

Mexican-American Ruiz produced one of boxing's biggest upsets when he dethroned the previously undefeated world champion Joshua with a seventh-round stoppage at New York's Madison Square Garden.

That is because the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, has asked for the ring to remain in the country after the bout.

But body language expert Believing Bruce claimed the current champion gave away a weakness during the sit down.In the clip, Ruiz's trainer was saying the heavyweight is "mentally prepared" for the fight.

"There's no way that I'm going to let these belts go", he said.

Fat Joe: KD, Kyrie 'didn't want that New York Knick pressure'
The Knicks are a different animal and Fat Joe is just saying the same things that many fans have argued recently. Fat Joe took Durant's response and used it to promote "Family Ties". "And those are my good friends".

Boxing is another sport which has seen plenty of Saudi money thrown at it - last year Britain's Callum Smith beat George Groves in the World Super Series final in Jeddah and earlier this year Amir Khan defeated Australia's Billy Dib in the same city.

The fight may also help to improve the image of Saudi Arabia, which has been damaged after the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

"I'm going to be the smarter fighter on the night".

"When I regain those belts". "I'm going to slim down to the point where I'm good for boxing and I'm good for 12 rounds". It's not a time to celebrate. With Joshua earning as much as a reported $70 million and Ruiz reportedly $10 million, the attraction for fighters is obvious. Saturday will mark his first defense, as well as the first time since April 2016 where Joshua will enter a major title fight as a beltless challenger.

"Before I was trying to bench-press a house".

"I didn't want to do anything different".

Although like the ring the venue won't be remaining in place after the fight and is due to be demolished after a tennis event next week.

"I made my dreams come true and made history", he said. "I'm ready for whatever comes my way".
