The Andy Ruiz Jr – Anthony Joshua rematch will be this saturday in Saudi Arabia. During the pre-match public workout Anthony Joshua speaks about a third fight with Ruiz. According to former champion a third fight doesn’t matter on the second fight’s result. He said that his style and Ruiz’s style are perfect for a spectacular fight. They could show for the people what the people needs, the blood, sweat and KO.
“Me and Andy Ruiz, if he’s dedicated to the game, we’ll definitely see each other a third time down the line. This ain’t gonna be the last time I see Ruiz in the ring. We make for good fights, I think there’s definitely going to be a knockout.” – said Joshua to Sky Sports.
If Joshua win on Saturday will even it out at 1-1 with Ruiz Jr., and a rubber match will be needed so that boxing fans can identify who the better fighter is between the two. And if Ruiz Jr. knocks Joshua out on Saturday, it won’t make sense for a third match. If Joshua win and get back his belts he need to mandatory fight against Kubrat Pulev and Oleksandr Usyk. So they needs to wait for a third fight.
