NENT Group to show Joshua fight against new opponent Ruiz
Nordic Entertainment Group, the media company that operates in Northern Europe, has acquired rights to British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua’s forthcoming world title defence against Mexico’s Andy Ruiz.
The fight takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York on 1 June, and NENT Group will be offering pay-per-view access in Denmark for DKr499 ($75.11), Norway for NKr499 ($56.93), Sweden for SKr499 ($51.76) and Finland for €49.95 ($56.13).
Ruiz is a replacement for USA’s Jarrell Miller who was ruled out of the fight after failing multiple doping tests.
The unbeaten Joshua is the reigning IBF, WBA (Super), WBO and IBO world champion, and NENT Group has shown all of his previous major title fights, as well as last autumn’s celebrated drawn fight between Deontay Wilder, the WBC champion from USA, and the UK’s Tyson Fury.
