One Night: Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr. (DAZN)

Leading into their rematch, DAZN has a look back at the massive heavyweight upset this past summer.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

With Andy Ruiz Jr. set to rematch Anthony Joshua on December 7th, just a few months after his monstrous upset win in June, DAZN releases a promotional video featuring tons of behind the scenes footage of the first fight between the two heavyweights.

The video starts off by covering all the expectations behind Joshua’s ascension in the heavyweight division, his scheduled American debut against Jarrell Miller, and ultimately what would turn into a late substitute opponent in Ruiz after Miller tested positive for banned substances.

That leads us into the actual fight itself, with some pretty damn good commentary coming from the likes of Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Sugar Ray Leonard, Sylvester Stallone, and even Dolph Lundgren along the way.

A lot of these promotional videos tend to be pretty bland and cookie-cutter, but I’d say this one is definitely worth the watch. Re-live all the excitiment and awe of the first match-up between Joshua and Ruiz before they run it back in just a couple of weeks.
