Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr: Fixing the time of the rematch in Saudi Arabia

At the end of the negotiation process to select the competitive day and venue, both fists Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr agreed on the neutral venue of Saudi Arabia.

Recently, Anthony Joshua boss Eddie Hearn - officially confirmed that the IBF, WBA and WBO belt rematch will take place on December 7th at Diriyah, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

Before the official announcement was made, New York City and Cardiff were the two most talked about options. However Diriyah, the first city of Saudi Arabia has become the chosen location.

Saudi Arabia's sports ministry has also revealed that it has spent $ 100 million for the match to take place here.

When the negotiation for the location of the second clash took place, Joshua's team asked for a confrontation to take place in England. However, with Dillian Whye cheating on the stimulant test not too long ago, Andy Ruiz Jr. confirmed that there would be no Mexican puncher flying to England.

Joshua also shared that he was not afraid to take up the challenge again in the US, but choosing a neutral location as Diriyah would probably be better for Joshua's mentality.

For the best psychology, manager Eddie Haern chose a neutral venue for Joshua.

In recent times, Saudi Arabia has been the venue for two big matches with high viewership. The World Boxing Super Series finals of the Super-Middleweight class between Callum Smith and George Groves took place in Jeddah last September. On July 12th, Saudi Arabia paid Amir Khan 7 million pounds to compete with Billy Dib and welterweight belt.
