Eddie Hearn has confirmed the triggering of the Rematch clause on the Anthony Joshua Vs Andy Ruiz Jr contract, which will now be set for a November or December date.

After the knockout loss, his promoter Eddie Hearn made clear Joshua will be activating the rematch clause on the fight contract, which will give the Brit a chance to regain his titles.

Andy Ruis Jr. has also voiced after the fight, he will love the Rematch in his hometown "Mexico".

"I'd love to do the rematch but first I've got to talk to my team, we'll go from there and figure things out," 'The Destroyer' said.
"I'd love to be in Mexico, there's never been a heavyweight champion in Mexico so I'd love to have a rematch there.
"I'm still pinching myself that this is true, all that hard work and dedication, I've made my dreams come true. We've been working for this my whole life, it's overwhelming and I'm just excited."
