SWITZERLAND, NOVEMBER 25 – Anthony Joshua arrived in Saudi Arabia over the weekend with less than two weeks to go until his massive rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.
After being dethroned by the underdog challenger in New York on June 1, AJ and his team opted to take the December 7 rematch to territory that will be less familiar for the Mexican-American.
Ruiz Jr initially kicked up a fuss about fighting in the Middle East, but all issues were soon resolved and the fight is now fully set.
To acclimatise, Joshua has headed to Riyadh early and videos have been uploaded by his team showing him checking out the facilities.
AJ first took a look inside the gym that has been specially built for him to complete his training in.
A ring of course adorned the centre of the space, with a corner filled with punch bags that the former champion was quick to test out.
He later went to Diriyah, the nearby heritage site which will actually host the bout, and had a look at the purpose-built arena in construction.
