I’ll Put an End to Your Career in Saudi Arabia!! Andy Ruiz Jr Warns Anthony Joshua
Unified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr says he wants to finish Anthony Joshua’s career after confirming he will contest a rematch in Saudi Arabia.
The Mexican world champion took to Twitter on Saturday morning to publicly announce his agreement for the December 7 fight in the Middle East.
I dethroned the king June 1st and made history becoming the first Mexican/American Heavyweight Champion of the world. I’m looking forward to ending his career in the desert. Mostrare la grandeza del boxeo mexicano en Arabia Saudita. 🥊🇲🇽🇺🇸🇸🇦🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/4asTzG4N7C

“I dethroned the king June 1st and made history becoming the first Mexican/American champion of the world,” wrote Ruiz Jr, who initially demanded the fight take place in the United States.
“I took it to AJ in the Big Apple and I’m looking forward to ending his career in the desert,” said Ruiz.
‘The Destroyer’ downed the 2012 Olympic gold medallist four times in front of a sell-out crowd in New York, inflicting the first defeat of Joshua’s career to become the first Mexican world heavyweight champion.
Joshua said on AJ: The Untold Truth: “All eyes on Ruiz Jr. Nobody can talk to me about Wilder or Fury – that is irrelevant.
“And nobody should talk to me about Wilder or Fury after I beat Ruiz Jr, because they have made it clear what they are doing. They have got the whole of 2020 booked up. Until they are free, nobody talk to me about Wilder or Fury.”
