A rematch between Anthony Joshua and his conqueror Andy Ruiz Jr will take place in November or December, says Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn.

American-born Mexican Ruiz produced one of the biggest shocks in heavyweight boxing history to take Joshua’s IBF, WBO and WBA world heavyweight titles in New York on Saturday.

A rematch clause was part of the contract for the fight.

Hearn said the clause had been triggered on Tuesday after talks.

“After meetings with AJ, Rob Mc[Cracken – Joshua’s trainer] and the management team in NY, we have today triggered the contracted rematch clause with Andy Ruiz Jr,” Hearn said on Twitter.

“The fight will take place in Nov/Dec at a venue to be confirmed shortly.” (BBC)
