Inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight champion is set to put his titles on the line against a challenger that was chosen on short notice in virtual unknown Andy Ruiz Jr.
Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) was originally slated to make his U.S. debut against Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller on the card that will be streamed exclusively on DAZN, but multiple failed drug tests by Miller brought that fight to a halt.
After a brief search, Joshua’s team landed on Ruiz (32-1, 21 KOs) to keep the marquee heavyweight championship defense intact.
