Anthony Joshua triggers Andy Ruiz Jr rematch clause, says Eddie Hearn


Anthony Joshua will have the chance to claim back his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts after his promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr will take place in November or December.

Joshua suffered a surprise seventh-round knockout defeat to the Mexican in New York at the weekend but the terms of their fight agreement contained a rematch clause.

Joshua was floored four times by Ruiz Jr before the referee stopped the fight in round seven

And Hearn confirmed that clause has been triggered following a meeting between AJ, his coach Rob McCracken and the management team.

Hearn tweeted: “After meetings with AJ, Rob Mc and the management team in NY, we have today triggered the contracted rematch clause with Andy Ruiz Jnr.

“The fight will take place in Nov/Dec at a venue to be confirmed shortly.”

The location of the fight has yet to be decided but it is thought it will take place in the UK.
