Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz weigh-in before Saudi showdown

Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua weighed in on Friday before their heavyweight rematch in Riyadh, when Joshua will attempt to reclaim his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in the so-called ‘Clash on the Dunes’.
While world champion Ruiz is more than a stone heavier than when the two met in New York in June, Joshua tipped the scales at his lightest weight in five years. As Ruiz squared up to Joshua for the head-to-head, the Mexican-American had to lean back slightly to avoid hitting the Briton with his sombrero.
