Fight fans are in for one hell of an afternoon treat later today (Sat., Dec. 7, 2019) live on DAZN from inside Diriyah Arena in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, as Anthony Joshua (22-1, 21 KO) tries to reclaim his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles in a much-anticipated rematch with current champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-1, 22 KO).

Joshua and Ruiz will be running it back from their initial meeting back in June. That fight produced one of biggest finishes in boxing of the past 20 years as Ruiz upset Joshua with a seventh-round TKO stoppage.

Joshua made little excuses for the loss so it's safe to say Ruiz was simply the better man that night. Fortunately for Joshua, he will have his chance to avenge his only pro loss when he meets Ruiz in Saudi Arabia later today.

But when exactly can DAZN subscribers expect Joshua and "Destroyer" to step inside of the boxing ring for their main event rematch?

Boxing is always tricky to time given the lengthy in-event promotions and introductions, but Joshua and Ruiz should begin their respective walks to the ring sometime around 4:00 p.m. ET (subject to change so keep it tuned into Mania for any updates). That will be right after three separate heavyweight fights spark the DAZN main card starting at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Make sure you don’t miss the action as Joshua tries to reclaim his ranking as boxing’s best heavyweight and prove that he's a better fighter than Ruiz. will deliver LIVE coverage of the main event below. The DAZN broadcast begins at noon ET, with Ruiz and Joshua set to make their ring walks around 4:00 p.m. ET.
