Today at 1 pm ET streaming live on DAZN and various social media outlets, Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr meet up for their final press conference ahead of Saturday’s fight at Madison Square Garden.

Joshua (22-0, 21 KO) will be making his US debut in this fight, where he’ll defend his WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles against Ruiz (32-1, 21 KO), a short-notice replacement for original opponent Jarrell Miller, who was taken out of the fight when he failed a trio of drug tests.

The odds for this one are heavily in Joshua’s favor, similar to the May 18 fight between Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale favoring Wilder, and similar to the upcoming June 15 fight between Tyson Fury and Tom Schwarz favoring Fury.

But it’s what we’ve got, so we’ll be here this afternoon to let you know that both guys plan to win on Saturday, one of them as expected, the other in the shocking upset.
