Andy Ruiz Jr will begin his comeback trail on his way back to the top against Chris Arreola in the spring.
The former heavyweight champion of the world hasn’t fought since his defeat to Anthony Joshua in December
- Andy Ruiz, 31 is fit and ready to jump back into the ring
Ruiz is out with a point to prove after he was ridiculed for being overweight and unfit in his rematch
against AJ. The Mexican stunned the world when he stole the Brit’s three title belts in June 2019 before
waving the white flag six months later.
He has since undergone a dramatic body transformation and looks in fighting shape to cause further upsets
in the heavyweight division.
According to Boxing News 24, talk over fighting 39-year-old Arreola is set to end with both fighters ready to
sign a contract. Arreola last fought in August 2019 and lost to Polish fighter Adam Kownacki.
If Ruiz Jr wins, he is likely to land another big-name fight such as Dillian Whyte, Alexander Povetkin or
Daniel Dubois. Meanwhile, Ruiz Jr is taking inspiration from Tyson Fury’s comeback to salvage his reputation,
according to his trainer.
