Why Andy Ruiz Jr. Vs. Anthony Joshua II On DAZN Is Must-See TV This Weekend

Who says that boxing is a dying sport? If you ask us, there’s nothing better than plopping down on the couch with some tall cold ones and taking in a good bout, just as our dads and grandads did. If that sounds like you and your buddies, then this weekend’s Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua fight on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m. ET. is perfect for you — and the only place to watch is exclusively on DAZN.


When we talk about this matchup being monumental, it may be an understatement, with the IBF, WBA (super) and WBO heavyweight belts on the line in a matchup between two fighters who went toe-to-toe earlier this year. It was, arguably, one of the biggest upsets in boxing history, with Ruiz (33-1, 22 KOs) knocking out Joshua (22-1, 21 KOs) in the seventh round, stunning the sport after coming into the bout as a 9-1 underdog.

As you might expect, there’s no love lost between these two fighters. And, while there’s mutual respect as well, the press conference showed that they’re both ready to knock one another’s heads off.

As mentioned above, Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Anthony Joshua II is exclusively being broadcast on DAZN, which is available on a variety of platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, iOS, Android, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Playstation 3, as well as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari browsers via DAZN.com. Here’s the pricing breakdown for a subscription as well.
