Joshua ready to fight Ruiz on neutral ground

By Saheed Ibrahim, Deputy Sports Editor

British heavyweight star Anthony Joshua said he is willing to fight Andy Ruiz Jr on “neutral ground”, but he would love the rematch to be staged in Cardiff.

Joshua’s second world-title fight with Ruiz Jr is yet to be confirmed following the Mexican’s shock victory at Madison Square Garden in New York.However, match room boxing boss Eddie Hearn has suggested a final decision is edging closer.

Ruiz Jr has voiced his displeasure at the prospect of travelling to the UK, with Joshua remaining respectful of his wishes, but the Brit admits that home advantage could be crucial as he attempts to avenge the seventh-round knockout loss in June.
