Mexican boxer, Andy Ruiz Jr has said he would “end Anthony Joshua’s career’ when the two meat for a rematch in Saudia Arabia.
Ruiz had on Saturday announced his agreement for the December 7 fight in the Middle East.
Speaking to SkySports, he said, “I dethroned the king (Joshua) June 1st and made history becoming the first Mexican/American champion of the world,” wrote Ruiz Jr, who initially demanded the fight take place in the United States.
“I’m looking forward to ending his career in the desert. I will show the greatness of Mexican boxing in Saudi Arabia.”
Ruiz Jr, who stunned Joshua with a seventh-round knockout at Madison Square Garden in June, was reluctant to fight in the UK as he felt it was “unfair”, according to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn.
‘The Destroyer’ downed the 2012 Olympic gold medallist four times in front of a sell-out crowd in New York, inflicting the first defeat of Joshua’s career to become the first Mexican world heavyweight champion.
