Promoter Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua’s fight against Andy Ruiz Jr could ‘change boxing forever’
Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr expect to contest the IBF championship despite the prospect of it being stripped before their rematch, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.
Ruiz Jr won the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in a major shock against Joshua in June, and their second fight will have the same gold at stake on December 7 in Saudi Arabia live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“When we announced this fight, we along with Ruiz Jr’s promoters wrote to the governing bodies to tell them that the fight is happening,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
