Andy Ruiz Jr. Vs. Anthony Joshua Fight Analysis And Betting Preview

Andy Ruiz was a replacement fighter against Anthony Joshua last year, and he ended up springing one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Ruiz Jr. was a 22/1 at most sportsbooks, and not only did he win the fight – he got a TKO on the previously undefeated Anthony Joshua.

Joshua immediately exercised his rematch clause, but this time, the time fight wouldn’t be in New York or Joshua’s native, England – it would take place on neutral ground. Riyad, Saudi Arabia.

The Three titles Fight

There will be three belts on the line in this fight, which are currently held by Andy Ruiz Jr. The WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Championships.  

The title bout will take place on Saturday Dec. 7, on the subscription channel, DAZN. Since the fight is taking place in the Middle East, the contest will be in the afternoon in North America.

It will take place at 3:45 PM EST, making the bout a late-lunch, slobber knocker.

Our Moneyline Pick

If this were the first time around, bettors would be chomping at the bit to get money down on Joshua. Honestly, the number looks pretty on point to me, but I still find myself wanting to lay some cash on AJ.

Yes, he doesn’t seem to have much a “chin,” which is boxing slang for not being able to take a punch or a hard shot. There have even been rumors that AJ was hurt in a sparring session, something that his camp has denied. 

But I still want to believe in the Anthony Joshua in this YouTube knockout mixtape. Yeah, that’s irrational as it gets, but there’s no way a specimen like him should lose to a guy that looks like Andy Ruiz.

Yes, I know he already lost to him. But, I can’t see Joshua losing this one, and I think he convincingly does the job.

The First Chapter Between Ruiz And Joshua

Ruiz didn’t get lucky, even as a massive underdog to Joshua in their first fight. He won the June 1st fight convincingly.

After getting knocked down early, he fought back to knock down Joshua in the same round. Then, he took him to the mat in the 7th round twice before ultimately getting a stoppage from the referee.

Bet On Ruiz vs. Joshua II At

A lot of people predicted AJ to drop Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. in 6 rounds or less. Right now, the odds point to this fight going over 7.5 rounds as it is juiced heavily on the -150 over number.

However, I find value in the under 7.5 rounds. I will plant my flag with Anthony Joshua once again and say he knocks him out early.

A. Joshua By KO, TKO, Or DQ -105
A. Ruiz Jr. By KO, TKO, Or DQ +225
A. Joshua By Decision Or Technical Decision +300
A. Ruiz Jr By Decision Or Technical Decision +1000
Draw Or Technical Draw +2500

If you have not guessed by now, this is another spot I am going with AJ. Indeed, check around to get the best price before betting props as it may be possible to find something 10-15 cents better.

I love the Joshua prop to win by KO, TKO, or DQ at -105. It’s close to even money for the way I think the fight most likely plays out.
