AGAIN! Andy Ruiz Jr Denies Anthony Joshua Rematch Fight In Saudi Arabia, Sparks Confusion

Andy Ruiz Jr has claimed he won't be fighting Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia despite news of an agreement being reached between both parties, MySportDab reports.

Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn called a press conference on Monday in London to announce that the crunch clash has been finalised for December 7 in Riyadh after weeks of negotiations.

However, Ruiz has since fired back by sensationally claiming that the contest will take place in the United States.

He said during an Instagram Q&A: "I know everybody is talking about the fight and all that but we got real news coming soon.

"Of course [I'm taking the rematch] but it's going to be on our terms; we're going to bring it back to the United States."

The Destroyer also accused AJ of being “scared”, adding: "Why do you think he's over there trying to make the fight in Saudi Arabia?

"Like I said, I don't have any protection over there, so if the United States of America wants to... never mind, I can't say nothing.

"The fight is going to happen soon."

The Principality Stadium in Cardiff and Madison Square Garden were the two options being seriously considered by Joshua and his team before lucrative offers from the Middle East.

Of course in Cardiff, he would have the advantage of a British crowd.

The stadium also has a roof, which is ultimately what ruled Wembley Stadium out of the running due to the time of year.

Joshua was also keen on righting the wrongs of his first career defeat in New York, but now the rematch is set for Riyadh with the view that it will be neutral ground for both fighters.

One week from now, Hearn will head out to Saudi Arabia to start getting ready for the arena, which is set to be a 12,000-seater outdoors stadium.

He affirmed that fans who buy a ticket will consequently get their visa included as a feature of the arrangement.

More data is required to be discharged during the battle's press visit in September which goes to Saudi Arabia, London and New York.
