Andy Ruiz makes his first appearance in the ring since losing his heavyweight title, tonight as he looks to get his career back on track against veteran slugger Chris Arreola. Read on for your full guide to watching an Andy Ruiz vs Chris Arreola live stream and don't miss a single punch.
It's been a lengthy wait for Ruiz to return to action, with the former undisputed heavyweight champ having not fought since his rematch defeat to Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia all the way back in December 2019.
The Mexican-American fighter famously pulled off one of boxing's biggest shocks by beating the British fighter in their first encounter at Madison Square Gardens a year earlier to take the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO.
But after coming under fire for being comically overweight for the rematch and keen to prove his title-winning victory was no fluke, Ruiz begins his comeback this weekend with a new slimmed-down look.
Looking to be in the best shape of his career and now under the tutelage of trainer-of-the-moment Eddy Reynoso, the deceptively quick-handed Ruiz will hope to make a winning return against four-time title challenger Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola.
The 40-year-old veteran has fallen short in bids for belts against Vitali Klitschko, Bermane Stiverne, and Deontay Wilder, and the experienced fighter should prove a tough challenge for a fighter looking to get his confidence back.
