One of the biggest fights of the year is just around the corner, and Boxpark is getting in on the action.

The venue's Croydon and Wembley locations are teaming up with Matchroom Boxing to host screenings of Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz 2 on December 7, welcoming sports fans for the heavily-anticipated rematch.

Joshua lost his IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO world titles to Ruiz Jr after a stunning upset at Madison Square Garden on June 1. The fight proved one of the biggest shocks in heavyweight boxing, after Ruiz Jr knocked his opponent down four times before the bout was called off in the seventh round.

The rematch, dubbed the Clash on the Dunes, is taking place, somewhat controversially, in Saudi Arabia. The fight will start at around 10pm UK time.

Tickets are £10 for general entry and £15 for a table seat, and both can be bought here.

The venues will be open from 4pm, with live music performances and screenings of the undercard fights Alexander Povetkin vs Michael Hunter​ and Filip Hrgovic vs Eric Molina.

Fans will have to chance to get themselves on TV too, as crowd reactions from the screenings will be shown on Sky Sports as part of their coverage of the fight.

Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Boxing, said: “Of course, not everybody can get out to Saudi Arabia for the fight – so we wanted to create something for the fans which would be an exciting alternative.

“We’ve seen before the popular fan parks which come with big football tournaments and matches, and we felt that this fight is on the same level and deserved something special as ‘AJ’ bids to become a two-time World Champion and win his titles back!”
