Anthony Joshua v Andy Ruiz Jr: live at Madison Square Garden bout


Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua's first fight in America will be broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Joshua's US bow on 1 June sees him face America-born Andy Ruiz Jr at New York's Madison Square Garden, a "bucket list" venue according to BBC Sport boxing correspondent Mike Costello.

The contest, for the IBF, WBA and WBO world titles, will take place at around 03:00 BST on Sunday, 2 June.

Costello said the 29-year-old's career is moving on to "another iconic venue".

Boxing calendar
Champions list
Costello, who will call the action from ringside, added: "There are hallowed arenas across all sports that bring an extra dimension to a commentator's excitement and Madison Square Garden, especially for a world heavyweight title fight, belongs high on the bucket list."

Joshua's bout will be one of three commentaries on BBC Radio 5 Live, following Callum Smith's defence of his WBA world super-middleweight title against Hassan N'Dam and Katie Taylor's lightweight showdown with Delfine Persoon, where all four women's world titles are on the line.

Throughout the week, 5 Live's boxing podcast with Costello and Steve Bunce will deliver fresh editions on Monday, after the midweek main event news conference, following Friday's weigh-in and on Sunday morning in the hours after the bout.

The BBC Sport website will provide updates throughout the week, as well as a live text commentary in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Joshua has not been in action since his impressive win last September over Alexander Povetkin, where he took his record to 22 wins from 22 fights, including 21 knockouts.

Ruiz stepped up for the bout when it was announced Joshua's original opponent Jarrell Miller failed drugs tests in April.

Ruiz, who has one loss in 33 fights, has said Joshua "fights like a big robot" in the build-up, while Joshua has labelled his opponent "a great challenger".

Ben Gallop, head of BBC Radio and Digital Sport, said: "Anthony Joshua is one of the most iconic British sportsmen of his generation and his first fight in the USA is an event not to be missed. I'm delighted we're able to bring our listeners exclusive commentary of the bout on BBC Radio 5 Live and the BBC Sport website following the conclusion of the all-English Champions League final, making for an unmissable night of sport on 5 Live this Saturday."

A Nigerian reject being celebrated over the World!! Nigeria, please say no to nepotism, despotism, endemic corruption, ethnic bigotry which the current government shields with their lives!

Today is democracy day, what has Nigeria as a country got to be celebrated?? It’s a sad story since independence!

Ok we done lose Joshua to BRITAIN our SLAVE MASTERS we done lose Izu Ugonoh to POLAND our fellow poor country these are current big names in heavy weight boxing.
But we have EFE AJAGBA who is still claiming Nigeria he has a perfect record of 10wins 9 wins by knockout the only fight he didn't win by k.o the other boxer ran away from the ring so he won by DQ, but we are not giving EFE any attention, money or support,He has NEVER made Nairaland front page once, USA will soon poach him his last fight I noticed they wrote Texas under his name his sponsors are now 100% U.S
USA is also about to take EFE APOCHI another Nigerian boxer with a perfect 100% win record he fights in the CRUISER WEIGHT.
You are waiting for your SLAVE MASTER to show you the next big boxer to put your weight behind right? If these guys decide to box for USA or UK those countries will OVER HYPE THEM and youd think they are God's they'll worship them but look us na we are too hungry and angry to think straight.

Nigeria will be claiming Anthony Joshua that isn't even
fighting as a Nigerian. Ever since the guy defeated the
aging Klishko the whole country hasn't failed to
support him for once but they let Samuel Peter that
grew up in Nigeria, worked here, trained here nd became a champion
here b4 conquering the world to fight with no support.
Maybe his crime was that he didn't bear a Yoruba,
Hausa nor Igbo name. My advice is learn to appreciate
those that have put in their best to contribute to the
development of this country b4 those ones that don't
even wanna be regarded as citizens of this damn
country. I wish u all the best, Anthony.

Have ever watched any of Ruiz's fight? Dude his fast and an extreme counterpuncher. His only loss was a questionable judge decision against Joseph Parker.
