Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the world in June by knocking out heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden. Joshua is 6'6" and sculpted, with endorsement deals from Hugo Boss and Beats (among others), and the Brit was considered by many to be the next great heavyweight. Meanwhile, Ruiz was a relatively unknown Mexican-American with a noticeably pudgy build who grew up fighting in the street. Now, the two heavyweights meet again on Saturday in a highly anticipated rematch. The Athletic's Mike Coppinger is in Saudi Arabia for the fight and joins us to talk about what to expect and why Ruiz's first victory might not have been a fluke.
