World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua is ready to excite the fans yet again when he defends his title against Mexican-American native Andy Ruiz this Saturday.

The fight will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York and will be broadcast live on DAZN. All the important titles will be at stake, but it is important to note that all three title fights for the night will feature WBA titles.

Joshua is coming into the fight having not fought since last September when he clashed with Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium in front of nearly 80,000 fans. Now, Joshua is fighting in the United States for the first time and at the mythical Madison Square Garden, “The Mecca of Boxing”.

The challenger, Andy Ruiz, is stepping into fight on late notice as the original opponent Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller fell out due to failed drug testing. Some fans and media think that Ruiz could actually offer a stiffer test than Miller would have, as he is a more seasoned professional and has extremely quick hands for a heavyweight.

Joshua will be entering the fight with a record of 22 wins, no losses, and 21 wins coming by knockout. Meanwhile, Ruiz has a record of 32 wins, 1 loss, and 21 wins coming by way of knockout.
