Joshua and Ruiz take stock after battling it out in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia, Diriyah

Ruptly is live from Diriyah on Saturday, December 7 as British heavyweight Anthony Joshua and his Mexican-American opponent Andy Ruiz Jr. talk to the press following their world heavyweight title rematch.

The bout, titled 'Clash on the Dunes', was the first heavyweight world title fight ever held in the Middle East and is set to take place at a custom-built 15,000-capacity arena on Saturday night.

Promoter Eddie Hearn defended the decision to host the clash in Saudi Arabia, saying that moving it outside of boxing's typical venues could lead to 'a big change in the dynamics of the sport.'

Ruiz stunned the sporting world with his against-all-odds knockout of the Briton in New York City's Madison Square Garden back in June.
