Andy Ruiz Jr’s next fight is expected to take place before the end of this year, with Luis Ortiz and Charles Martin two potential opponents.
The former world heavyweight champion stopped Anthony Joshua to sensationalize the titles in June 2019, but was completely knocked out in their rematch six months later.
After an 18-month absence, Ruiz Jr finally returned to the ring with a victory over Chris Arreola in May.
According to Andy Ruiz Sr, his son suffered from a knee injury the entire time.
He underwent surgery to finally fix the issue in August and is now slowly approaching a fight date.
According to ESPN, Ruiz Jr’s next fight is scheduled for December.
Ortiz – one of the possible opponents – is a highly regarded Cuban competitor.
His only losses came at the hands of Deontay Wilder by knockout.
Martin – referred to as the second potential enemy – is a former champion, albeit briefly.
The “Prince Charles” was sadly dethroned in two rounds by AJ in 2016.
