Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Chris Arreola: Date, fight time, TV channel and live stream
An all-Mexican heavyweight clash four days before Cinco de Mayo. Ruiz steps back into the ring for the first time since December 2019, when he lost his titles in a lopsided decision to Anthony Joshua. He came in significantly overweight and didn't have the same focus as he did when he scored one of the biggest upsets in boxing history when he stopped Joshua in June 2019. Realizing changes were needed, Ruiz is now under the tutelage of Eddy Reynoso, who trains Canelo Alvarez, Ryan Garcia, and Oscar Valdez.
