Anthony Joshua: Andy Ruiz Jr rematch to be staged in Saudi Arabia

Anthony Joshua's world heavyweight title rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr will take place in Saudi Arabia on December 7, his promoter Matchroom has announced.

Joshua will be bidding to win back the IBF, WBA and WBO titles which Ruiz ripped from him in a stunning four-knockdown upset at Madison Square Garden in June.

The rematch will be the latest high-profile boxing event to be held in the country after Amir Khan's victory over Australian Billy Dib in July.
