Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua Predictions & Betting Odds - Boxing Preview
December 05, 2019
Andy “Destroyer” Ruiz Jr (33-1-0) defends the WBA, WBO and IBF Heavyweight titles he won from Anthony “AJ” Joshua (22-1-0) in a rematch on Saturday night at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.
The previously undefeated Anthony Joshua lost inside seven rounds when he was stopped by the Mexican-American underdog at Madison Square Garden in New York back in June. He’ll be desperate to not only regain his titles, but also his legacy.
Many commentators and fans alike speculated over Joshua’s condition after the first fight with Ruiz, but the 30 year-old British fighter has apparently looked good in sparring in recent days and appears to be confident that he won’t make the same mistakes again.
Probably the biggest doubt surrounding the 30 year-old Ruiz is whether he still has the same hunger he had going into the first fight? There’s no doubt that his life has changed markedly for the better since beating Joshua. Has that made him complacent?

Ruiz vs Joshua Betting Lines & Boxing Prediction
In terms of boxing bet predictions for this fight, Joshua needs to take advantage of his considerable height and reach advantage over Ruiz on this occasion. He’s apparently spent a lot of time improving his footwork leading up to this fight so, if he can keep the dangerous Ruiz at a distance, he should be able to control the fight with his jab.
We prefer the Method of Victory market for the tip though, with Joshua to dictate the fight and win by Decision or Technical Decision at +375 (4.75) with bet365.
