Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr 2 Predictions and Betting Tips: Revenge Is A Cold Dish

Ruiz v Joshua 2

Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr will face each other for a rematch valid for the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO World Heavyweight Championship. The hugely anticipated boxing event will take place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. Below you will find the best betting tips on this bout and also the best odds.

 The question everyone is asking is: will the British boxing ace be able to get revenge or will the first even Mexican Heavyweight World Champion show that the first result wasn’t a blip?

Over those months, we have seen lots of conspiracy theories. Some has been saying that AJ had a panic attack before walking into the ring, while others said he suffered from a concussion after being knocked out. Although those rumours are interesting, the better man likely defeated him on the night. 

Anthony Joshua (22-1) has a record and credentials that are unique to this sport. Even if he has come to the sport quite late compared with other boxers, he did very well in the 2012 London Olympics where he claimed the gold. Since turning professional, he has been delivering fantastic results. 

AJ won the first world title by defeating Charles Martin and legend Wladimir Klitschko. He then decided that it was time to crack America and booked a fight with Jarrell Miller. Miller was chosen as he was perceived as capable of causing some trouble, but not strong enough to cause Joshua some real damage. The plan, however, quickly changed as Miller failed drugs tests and AJ’s team had to find a different opponent. He decided to face the Mexican and the rest, is like they say, history.  

Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr 2 Fight

Andy Ruiz Jr (33-1) will be very keen to deliver Joshua another blow and defend his newly acquired belts. A second win against Joshua will open up the opportunity to face Deontay Wilder. It is not going to be easy, though. Let’s remember that Ruiz Jr has suffered defeat previously as he lost against Joshua Parker. AJ has had already outboxed Parker when the two faced each other in the past. Even if he is the defending champion, bookies are sceptical about the possibility that he can beat Joshua again. His first match performance was seen as a ‘one-off’ and AJ will be fully motivated to prove that thesis on Saturday night. 

Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr 2 Betting Tips

Joshua knows well that, after conceding the first professional loss of his career, the pressure will be on him to show that he has what it takes to make a strong comeback and archive that defeat as a blip. 

Many believe that AJ was not well before a punch being thrown. Maybe those rumours have some truth but let’s not make the mistake of taking anything away from Ruiz Jr performance on the night. The Mexican was able to stand tall to Joshua’s shots and land a crucial shot which decided the bout. 

This rematch will be in the neutral territory of Saudi Arabia, and it would be interesting to see how the two fighters will prepare for the different environment provided by this location. Ruiz jr has maintained his size while Joshua has slimmed down considerably ahead of this fight. This is not surprising as he looked a bit fleshy for his high standards in his last few fights. 

We believe that Ruiz Jr will try to close the gap with AJ by boxing in close, in the hope of frustrating the Brit. The Mexican has very quick hands and fast feet, and this allows him to close the distance before getting his combinations. Joshua will be more aware of his opponent’s strategy though and will try to utilise his jab to stop Ruiz’s Jr advances and keep him at a comfortable range. After tasting Ruiz Jr’s power, he will be more careful. If his strategy starts to work, as we believe it will, then the Brit can increase his confidence and finally get his revenge.
