Find Out The Name Of The Former Champion That Anthony Joshua Once Fought In Saudi Arabia.

Recently, Tyson Fury gave a hint through his twitter handle that, the grand fight between Anthony Joshua and himself will hold in Saudi Arabia.

Andy Ruiz Jr.


However, this is not the first time that Anthony Joshua would have to fight in Saudi Arabia, as in 2019 he was made to fight Andy Ruiz Jr. The fight against Andy Ruiz Junior, was a rematch but one that ended in favour of Anthony Joshua.


Andy Ruiz is a Mexican-American and a former unified title holder who rose to the top of his career in 2018 only to get toppled by Anthony Joshua on the 7th of December, 2019. Anthony Joshua won Ruiz through an unanimous decision in a match that was refereed by Louis Pabon.

The fight took place at the UNESCO world heritage site of Al Turaif. He has fought 36 times and lost only twice through out his career. 22 out of his total matches ended with a knock out and this has earned him the fourth best heavy weight fighter in the world, a ranking that has obviously not been updated since May last year.
