“Let’s Get The Trilogy” -Andy Ruiz Ready To Replace Dillian Whyte To Face Anthony Joshua In Saudi Arabia



Andy Ruiz Jr. volunteered to come on as a late replacement to face Anthony Joshua in the main event on August 12 after his previously scheduled opponent Dillian White was removed on the next card.

Although Joshua and Eddie Hearn are intrigued by the idea of ​​using Ruiz as a substitute, match negotiations will be near impossible soon until August 12th.

Ruiz realizes he has Joshua in a cage, needy, desperate, in a vulnerable position and will demand a small fortune.

Former Unified Heavyweight Champion Ruiz (35-2, 22 KOs) would be a great, but very dangerous replacement for AJ to fight for seven days.

Joshua will be in trouble if he agrees to fight Ruiz, 33.

Eddie Hearn, Joshua, I think I’ve found a new replacement. Come back, let’s get the trio,” Andy Ruiz Jr. posted on social media, volunteering to replace Anthony Joshua on Aug. 12.

AJ was fired four years ago when he chose to use buxom Ruiz as his opponent after original opponent Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller tested positive for a banned substance.

Ruiz shocked the world by beating Joshua in the seventh round.

Joshua then avenged that loss by defeating the yet-to-be-formed Ruiz in a rematch in December 2019 in Saudi Arabia.

The more than $10 million that Ruiz earned from two fights with Joshua greatly affected his ambitions because he has rarely participated since then, fighting only twice in the past four years, beating Chris Areola, 40 and 43. Luis Ortiz.

If the goal is to find a competitor who will bring PPV to DAZN on August 12, Andy Ruiz Jr is the one Joshua should bring.

Again, there probably won’t be enough time to negotiate a deal with Ruiz because he wants the ridiculous amount, and he doesn’t deserve it because he didn’t continue his career by staying on the property.

Ruiz has been forgotten since his loss to Joshua in 2019. It’s been 11 months since Ruiz’s last bout, but he’s still training, losing weight, and preparing for what he hopes will be a big fight against Wilder.

It will be a serious fight for Wilder, as he will soon face Joshua in Saudi Arabia.

Ruiz recently entered into negotiations with ex Deontay Wilder, but the negotiations went nowhere due to Andy’s insistence on getting even.
