Andy Ruiz v Anthony Joshua 2 Predictions
Method of Victory – Joshua to Win by Decision / Tech Decision @ 7/2 with BetVictor
The rematch takes place at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia, with “AJ” knowing that his legacy as an elite heavyweight may never recover should he fail to beat the Mexican-American a second time.
“The Destroyer” was widely overlooked last time, but his 33-1-0 record deserves the utmost respect and it would appear that Joshua has seriously upped in his game in preparing for the second fight.
Joshua has a considerable height and reach advantage, although he’s often struggled with shorter fighters slipping inside his jab and throwing counter punches. Apparently Joshua has been working extensively on his footwork on training and that could pay dividends here.
