Joseph Parker Pushes for Rematch Against Andy Ruiz Jr

This year is just getting better for boxing fans. Joseph Parker and Andy Ruiz Jr put on a masterpiece performance when they first met in 2016.

We might witness their rematch now, six years after Parker beat Ruiz Jr. on points to claim the vacant WBO heavyweight championship.

Since then, both heavyweights have had massive success. Ruiz went on to become the first man to knock out Anthony Joshua and Parker is coming off a major win against Derek Chisora last December.

In a social media post on Sunday, Parker called out his old foe. He wrote: “Who’s keen on this rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr? My team been reaching out bro. Let’s make it happen!”

Ruiz hasn’t responded to the call yet, but he is right up there among top contenders who deserve another shot against Parker, especially after beating Chris Arreola last May.

Even boxing promoter David Higgins was elated to hear that Parker vs Ruiz II is in the works.

“A rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr would be fantastic,” the 42-year-old New Zealander told Sky Sports.

“Parker beat Ruiz Jr in a very close fight in New Zealand. Had it have been in America, it may have gone the other way.
