Joshua camp announces venue for rematch, Ruiz mum for now

 LONDON — The cat appears to be out of the bag. On Friday, after around two full months of speculation and promoter posturing the public finally received a when and a where for the hotly-anticipated rematch between unified heavyweight boxing champion of the world — Imperial’s own Andy Ruiz Jr. — and the man he dethroned.

Per Matchroom Boxing, which promotes ex-champ Anthony Joshua, the fight will take place on Dec. 7 in a yet-to-be constructed temporary venue in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
