Promoter Eddie Hearn says Andy Ruiz Jr has signed a deal to fight Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia despite speculation he is not committed to the bout.
The unified world heavyweight champion, has not shared any fight details on social media since the 7th December rematch was announced on Friday.
His trainer Manny Robles says “there’s a reason why” Ruiz has kept silent.
Hearn, who promotes Joshua, said: “Both fighters signed for this fight and The governing bodies have been informed.”
At a London news conference where neither Joshua or Ruiz were present, Hearn said the rematch will take place in an open-air stadium in Diriyah, on the outskirts of Riyadh
