Andy Ruiz Jr. and Chris Arreola will face off looking to give a boost to their boxing careers and to become belt contenders once again. The two Mexican heavyweight boxers will be back in the ring after a long time, and fans are excited to see it. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about the fight, such as preview, predictions, odds, and even how to watch the boxing fight in the US.
Ruiz has been under severe training ahead of this bout. His well-remembered triumph over Anthony Joshua in June 2019 meant one of the most epic results in the sport's history, but his hurtful loss in the rematch a few months later saw the big boy losing the four belts and entering a hiatus in his career.
On the other hand, the veteran will be facing probably one of his last opportunities to fight for a title once again. Arreola couldn't succeed in his attempts to become a champion, and the upcoming event could be his last chance to fulfill that dream.

Andy Ruiz Jr. vs Chris Arreola: Storylines
Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the boxing world in June 2019 when he defeated the British Anthony Joshua by KO. The Mexican landed to that fight with short notice and overcame all odds claiming the four heavyweight belts.
Still, the joy after that triumph didn't last very long, as in the rematch in December Ruiz showed up in bad shape and suffered a disappointing loss. He struggled to recover from that night, going through depression and he was seen very overweight. Still, Ruiz found a way to bounce back and started to work under Eddy Reynoso's guidance, who made the boxer lose his extra pounds to return to the ring aiming to be a title contender once again.
Meanwhile, Arreola will be also stepping back into the ring after a while. His last bout took part in 2019, when he was beaten by Alan Kownacki via unanimous decision. The 40-year-old lost all four times as a title challenger, and the encounter against Ruiz could be his last chance to fight for a belt.
