Joshua vs Ruiz II – The Rematch

Joshua vs Ruiz II – The Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr caused one of the greatest upsets in boxing by defeating Anthony Joshua back in June. We discuss the rematch on December 7th, 2019 and all the betting odds available.

It has been the biggest debate in world boxing this year – did Anthony Joshua quit on his fight against Andy Ruiz Jr?

Joshua came into the first bout with an incredible record: 22-0 with 21 knockout victories. Ruiz was an 11.00 outsider. It simply shouldn’t have happened.

Yet whatever your opinion of the result – this is the rematch, and it is surely redemption time for Anthony Joshua. It’s hard to see any other result, although this time the odds are nowhere near as outrageous. Check out the Joshua vs Ruiz 2019 betting odds here:

Joshua vs Ruiz II Preview

The most amazing plotline of the Joshua vs Ruiz saga is that Andy Ruiz Jr wasn’t even supposed to fight Anthony Joshua – the original fight was to be Joshua vs Jarrell Miller, and the latter failed a drug test leading to a last minute switch. The rest, as we know is history.

This is now Joshua’s chance to prove the doubters wrong.

For around six months the English boxing superstar has had to field questions about is preparation, mentality and the inevitable digs at his integrity. On what will be a huge stage, this is the redemption story waiting to happen.

Yet Ruiz is no slouch. He has a record of 33-1 compared to Joshua’s 22-1, and has more experience. While he is not as dominant as Joshua, having 66% of his victories won by KO compared with Joshua’s 95%, Ruiz has the wood over his opponent, which is a huge advantage.

When and Where is the Joshua vs Ruiz Fight?

The fight gets underway on Saturday December 7th at around 4pm ET.

It will take place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Joshua vs Ruiz II Prediction

The statistics say that this fight will either be won by Joshua by KO, or by Ruiz by KO. It is hard to see the fight going the distance, and therefore we think the decision outcome is out of play.

There is a market for whether the fight will go the distance, and ‘No’ is the overwhelming favourite at odds of 1.30.

You can also look at betting on the exact method of victory, putting aside the fighter that will actually win. The top options here are:

  • Technical Knockout (TKO): 1.50
  • Knockout (KO): 3.50
  • Unanimous Decision: 4.50

Our pick is an Anthony Joshua victory by TKO. We agree with the top bookmakers that the fight is unlikely to go the distance, although can’t see Ruiz Jr going down on a straight KO. The safe option therefore is the Technical TKO at 1.50, as you will get paid regardless of who wins.

You can also bet on Anthony Joshua to win by KO/TKO or disqualification at odds of 1.83.
