Joshua, Andy Ruiz set to come face to face ...as pair meet in Saudi Arabia ahead of rematch.

Anthony Joshua comes face to face with Andy Ruiz Jr this Wednesday for the first time since he was unceremoniously relieved of all his world heavyweight titles on that sensationally upsetting night in New York.

They meet in Saudi Arabia, where Joshua will have his chance on December 7 of reclaiming his crown from the first Mexican ever to be become world heavyweight champion.

Riyadh sees the start of their whistle stop promotional tour which goes on to New York on Thursday and winds up in London on Friday.

They will take intense stock of each other.

Joshua will be hoping for visual confirmation of reports that the rotund surprise package who dropped him four times inside seven rounds in Madison Square Garden three months ago has not only been eating more Snickers bars than ever but also celebrating high on the hog.

Ruiz will be looking for differences in Joshua, too. Physically, whether he has reduced muscle mass to achieve a more mobile boxing physique. Psychologically, if he seems more switched on, focussed and less complacent.
