The boxing world has been hit on June 1 when 3 of those four major heavyweight titles (WBA, WBO, IBF) transformed hands with AndyDestroyer Ruiz Jr. quitting AnthonyAJ Joshua at the first round. This boxing??rematch is right Saudi Arabia on December 7, in Diriyah, occurring around the corner.
Online sportsbook BetOnline has him since the -250 favored though Joshua dropped the first bout.
I believe that the chances are about right with this rematch. Ruiz??revealed he had been in the ring together with Joshua as he became also the chances and the first Mexican winner reflect this as he was a +1200 underdog from the first bout.
It was a upset the very first time both of these guys fought at Madison Square Garden on June 1. This was Joshuas first fight on American land and he took the fight a little . The former champ had been set to fight Jarrell Miller until Miller tested positive three times and was denied a permit in the New York Athletic Commission.
In the first garbage, AJ landed this bouts first huge punch, sending Ruiz??to the canvas for the first time in his career at the next round. Destroyer didnt look out of varieties after the knockdown and seemed aware and in fact??dropped him twice and went in the winner.
AJ never seemed to receive his feet under him following that third round. He looked shaky and sluggish. Charge to Ruiz,??who went right at home placing the pressure on for the rest of the fight that finished in the top round and smelled the blood.
Rumors came out following the struggle in sparring earlier in the week that Joshua had been dropped, as he entered the ring and there were marks on his head.?? Having said that, he denied these rumors. Saudi Arabia had been the location, although it was expected that the rematch would take place on Joshuas home soil in England.
Both fighters have shrunk down because their first meeting, especially so as hes hoping to tilt the scales around 255 to 257 pounds compared to. I believe well see a competitive and more focused Joshua at the rematch, using his jab to keep Ruiz in bay and perhaps open up afterwards in the bout. On the other hand, is going to once more want to keep down his chin and worry that the former champion, but in doing so he will be at risk of AJs power.
Prediction: Anthony Joshua (-250) via decision
