Andy Ruiz Jr. and Anthony Joshua rematch is in jeopardy as the Ruiz declared that he will not fight Joshua in the United Kingdom as he fears it is a ‘set-up’.
The Mexican champion stunned the world on the 1st of June, 2019 when he defeated Anthony Joshua in the seventh round to become WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO champion of the world.
While reacting to the news of Dillian Whyte’s alleged fails drugs test, the Mexican-American posted a tweet saying: ‘I’m not going to the UK for the rematch #issasetup.’
Andy Ruiz Jr rules out UK rematch with Anthony Joshua; says Whyte reportedly tested positive ‘for at least two banned substances’ before to Saturday’s victory over Oscar Rivas.
Daily Mail reported that the British Boxing Board of Control allowed the fight to go ahead according to legal protocol pending B sample tests and appeals. If Whyte’s B sample is negative then he would be cleared of any wrongdoing.
