Where to watch the Andy Ruiz Jr vs. Anthony Joshua rematch in London and the UK: official screenings, pubs, clubs and bars

The heavyweight boxing title bout takes place in Saudi Arabia

Andy Ruiz Jr vs. Anthony Joshua II 

Boxing fans around the world will be tuning in to watch the heavyweight rematch between world champion Andy Ruiz Jr and challenger Anthony Joshua on Saturday.   

Ruiz Jr scored a stunning victory over Joshua in New York in June and the duo will go head-to-head again in what promises to be the biggest fight of the year. 

The “clash on the dunes” in Saudi Arabia will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office, but many pubs, clubs and bars will also be broadcasting the bout. 

Official London screenings of Ruiz Jr vs. Joshua II, staged by promoter Matchroom Boxing, will be held at Boxpark Croydon and Boxpark Wembley.

Eddie Hearn, managing director of Matchroom Boxing, said: “Of course, not everybody can get out to Saudi Arabia for the fight - so we wanted to create something for the fans which would be an exciting alternative. 

“We’ve seen before the popular fan parks which come with big football tournaments and matches, and we felt that this fight is on the same level and deserved something special as ‘AJ’ bids to become a two-time world champion and win his titles back!”

Here we look at the details of where to watch the fight in the capital and around the United Kingdom.
