Ruiz vs Joshua 2: Live coverage NOW!

Today at Noon ET from Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, we’ve got a big heavyweight card headlined by the massive rematch between WBA, WBO, and IBF titleholder Andy Ruiz Jr and the man he took the belts from six months ago, Anthony Joshua.

We’ll be here with live, round-by-round coverage for the full card. Wil Esco is on the round-by-round call for you today. Ring walks for the main event are expected around 3:45 pm ET.

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 undercard will feature Alexander Povetkin vs Michael Hunter, Dillian Whyte vs Mariusz Wach, Filip Hrgovic vs Eric Molina, and Mahammadrasul Majidov vs Tom Little, all heavyweight bouts.
