Eleven Sports has secured live and exclusive coverage of the Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr rematch in Belgium, Portugal and Taiwan.

Joshua will be fighting to reclaim the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles from ‘The Destroyer’ in Saudi Arabia on the seventh of December, vying to regain his sport atop of the exciting heavyweight division.

Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, Eleven Sports, said: “We want to bring the greatest sporting events to ELEVEN SPORTS fans, and it doesn’t get much bigger than the battle to be the heavyweight champion of the world.

“This fight is a great addition to an already very strong portfolio of rights across Belgium, Portugal and Taiwan which includes the UEFA Champions League, Premier League, La Liga, Formula 1 and much more besides. We hope our fans enjoy it.”

Whether Ruiz repeats one of the greatest upsets in boxing history or Joshua reclaims his crown as heavyweight champion of the world – the bout is likely to go down in heavyweight history.
