Ruiz shocked the world on June 1 at Madison Square Garden, stopping the heavily favored Joshua in the seventh round, and is looking to repeat. For Joshua, this is a fight where his career is, in some respects, kind of on the line. A second straight loss to Ruiz would be crushing for him, at least in the short term.
The decision to showcase Joshua to an American audience may be close to fruition but plenty of boxing fans will want the heavyweight champion to dispatch Ruiz Jr quickly and his promoter Eddie Hearn to focus on striking a deal for his fighter to face one of boxing’s other big guns in town.
An early stoppage
Joshua will be hoping to announce himself to an American audience in some style and there may be added pressure on him to produce an electric knockout finish early to excite the crowd.
Ruiz Jr is nowhere near as big a price to win as Buster Douglas was when he knocked out Mike Tyson in 1990 and punters anticipating an upset should note that Ruiz Jr is 250/1 to win inside the opening three minutes and the only three rounds in which his price is shorter are rounds 9, 10 and 11, when you can get 175/1.
Pick: Anthony Joshua
