Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz 2: What time does fight start in Australia? Ring walks, TV channel and more

The highly anticipated heavyweight rematch is upon us as Anthony Joshua looks to recapture his world titles from Andy Ruiz.

The Briton was stunned back in June by the Mexican-American in New York and now faces the daunting prospect of an immediate rematch.

Joshua will know the ramifications if he loses and it will involve a long road back to the top with Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury set to face off in at least one more fight to start next year – while a third fight between the pair is already pencilled in for the summer.
