Regardless of where the rematch takes place, it may give us the answers to some unanswered questions from the first fight.
Originally Posted To My YouTube Channel Sports Talk With Troy Anthony Joshua Andy Ruiz Rematch Announced, But Not Agreed On! Back in June Andy Ruiz Jr. Shocked the world and upset Anthony Joshua to win the WBA, WBO & IBF Heavyweight Championships. His contract had a rematch clause that favored than champion Joshua. It was announced by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing that the rematch will take place on December 7th in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. However, despite the rematch clause, Ruiz has not agreed to these terms. The question is who has the most leverage? Joshua has the contract that Ruiz agreed to, Ruiz has 3 of 4 Heavyweight Championships. Who has the most to lose? If Ruiz refuses the current terms? I am of the opinion that one way or another Joshua is fighting on Dec 7th in Saudi Arabia.with at least one if not all three of the A Heavyweight Championships he lost to Ruiz in June on the line. If it’s not against Ruiz don’t be surprised if it’s against Oleksandr Usyk who is the #1 contender with the WBO and a Matchroom fighter. If Ruiz holds his position. He is promoted through the PBC and as long as Deontay Wilder wins his rematches with Luis Ortiz & Tyson Fury. He should get a shot at WBC Champion Wilder.
Who is the #1 Heavyweight? Andy Ruiz Jr? Deontay Wilder? Tyson Fury? I am of the opinion that these three heavyweights have a claim to the crown. Because Andy Ruiz decisively beat Anthony Joshua the former unified champion is not in consideration neither is future heavyweight and the top boxer in my most recent pound-4-pound rankings Oleksandr Usyk.
