Andy Ruiz Jr (33-2, 0 KOs) will be looking to recapture his former glory when he meets Chris Arreola today. Ruiz Jr, 31, shocked the world in Summer 2019 when The Destroyer floored Britain's Anthony Joshua four times en route to a seventh round stoppage.

Just six months later, Ruiz Jr was forced to give the belts back when Joshua took revenge. The Mexican warrior hasn't ventured into the ring since but he's hooked up with Canelo Alvarez's coach Eddy Reyonoso, so he should be in good shape for this one.

“I have known Chris Arreola since I turned professional," Ruiz Jr told reporters earlier this week. "He’s a Mexican warrior just like me, and I expect him to come at me with everything he’s got.”

As for Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola (38-6, 1 KO), the 40-year-old has lost his last four fights but says he's looking forward to putting on a show at the Dignity Health Sports Park this weekend:

“He’s motivated to knock my block off but I’m motivated too. I want to win. He may have been the first Mexican heavyweight champion but the best Mexican is right here. People that know me and have watched me fight, know I try not to be in a boring fight at all."

A limited number of fans will be allowed into the stadium.

How to watch Andy Ruiz Jr vs Chris Arreola abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Andy Ruiz Jr vs Chris Arreola rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
