Initially, the report came out that Deontay Wilder might be facing Andy Ruiz before he finally squares off against Anthony Joshua in December in the Middle East.
Now, it seems like this bout is actually a possibility now. A win against Andy Ruiz can get Wilder much-needed momentum as Ruiz was the first person ever to defeat Anthony Joshua in a boxing match.
It is also a great opportunity for Andy Ruiz to get some spotlight in this division by defeating Deontay Wilder before one of his career’s biggest fights.
If Andy Ruiz signs the contract, then the official announcement for Wilder vs Ruiz will take place very soon.
