After their first bout was staged at the iconic Madison Square Garden in NY, the duo will meet again in Riyadh, with the determined challenger predicting an unforgettable fight as he bids to avenge the only blot on his boxing CV.

The Mexican boxer who first defeated the British-Nigerian boxer in June, arrived at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh on Tuesday, November 26, for their rematch on December 7.

It was a punch that sent shock waves throughout boxing and Anthony Joshua had suggested Andy Ruiz Jr had divine intervention in his favour.

Danny Menken, group managing director of Eleven Sports, said: "This fight is a great addition to an already very strong portfolio of rights across Belgium, Portugal and Taiwan which includes the Uefa Champions League, (English) Premier League, (Spanish) LaLiga, Formula 1 and much more besides".

Former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua admits that he knew for the last two years that certain adjustments were necessary for his fighting style - and failure to fix them would result in a loss.

The bout is the first heavyweight world title fight to take place in the Middle East and will be staged in a 15,000-seat arena.

The Diriyah Arena is located in a suburb of Riyadh and while work on the stadium only began in October, it is only now close to completion.

That figures to be a hard task, considering the savage fashion that Ruiz defeated him at Madison Square Garden in June. "I've been screaming this for two years in my gym, 'I keep on going this way, I'm going to end up getting beat soon!'".

"You'll be asking me a whole heap of different questions on December 8th".
