Joshua vs Ruiz Live Stream: UK time and how to watch the fight online

Joshua vs Ruiz Live Stream: How to watch Joshua vs Ruiz online

It’s the one we’ve all been waiting for. Anthony Joshua takes on Andy Ruiz Jr at New York City’s Madison Square Garden tonight. It’s AJ’s first fight in the US, and he’ll step into the ring as the overwhelming favourite. Here’s how to live stream Joshua vs Ruiz online – plus all the key details like the Joshua vs Ruiz UK time and undercard.

Joshua was originally down to fight Jarrell Miller, but Ruiz stepped in for the American after he failed a series of drugs tests.

Much of the discussion ahead of the bout has, understandably, focused on Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder − surely they can’t keep avoiding each other much longer − and Ruiz will no doubt be desperate to show that everyone has been wrong to overlook him.

The Destroyer, as he’s known, has 32 wins to his name (21 by knockout) and has been defeated once. He’s never been knocked down.

Here are all the details you need to watch Joshua vs Ruiz tonight.
