While there’s still hopes for a rematch between Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr, it is going to take some time.
Joshua would need to rake up a few wins before he gets another shot at Ruiz Jr. However, both the men expressed their desire for a rematch in the post-match press conference.
Will There be an Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr. Rematch?
There’s a good chance that there WILL be a rematch between these two. However, the dates aren’t clear. We expect that this match will happen towards the end of the year, so that both these men can have at least one to two more fights before that.
