Former heavyweight world champion Andy Ruiz Jr is back in action on the weekend as he fights in California.

He steps into an all-Mexican duel against Chris Arreola with no title bout on the line.

If Ruiz Jr can see off his compatriot  Arreola, then that could push him back towards a potential further title fight again. He needs to keep re-climbing the ladder.

Andy Ruiz jr Preview – Will the Destroyer get the easy win?

If the bookies have this right then this is going to be all one-way traffic from Andy Ruiz Jr on the weekend.

The former heavyweight champion is the 1/9 odds on favourite in boxing betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

This will be the first fight for him since losing all his belts in a rematch with Anthony Joshua in December 2019.

He was never really in that rematch with Joshua, out of shape and a bit unfocused it is fair to say.

A change of backroom staff has happened since then and Ruiz Jr now works with Eddy Reynoso who trains Canelo Alvarez.

So he had about a sixth-month reign as the world champion and it would likely only take a couple of fights to get him back on the title radar.

The career record for Ruiz Jr is now 33-2 with eleven wins coming by a knockout.

Our betting prediction:
Ruiz Round 7

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021)


Ruiz Jr has lightning hands, it’s what undid Joshua in that first meeting in 2019.

The combinations that the Mexican fighter produces are stunning and we could see the main route to victory for Ruiz Jr being by a KO TKO or Disqualification.

That’s not offering too much though in terms of favourite boxing betting odds at 2/9* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

So we have to look around. Of his last five fights, all but one have been settled before the 11th round.

An Andy Ruiz Jr Round 7-12 round group option is at a quote of 11/8* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

We think that looks about fair.


Chris Arreola Preview – Can The Nightmare upset the odds

Of Mexican heritage as well is Chris Arreola who has had three shots at a title during his career.

Those losses on the biggest stage of all were against Vitali Klitschko, Bermane Stiverne, and Deontay Wilder.

The most recent fight that Arreola had was in August 2019 against Adam Kownacki.

The two of those went hammer and tong at each other in an excellent spectre.

But Arrealo lost the bet by a unanimous decision.

The 40-year-old will be doing very well to stick in there right through to the final bell in this contest, although that is the fight that he is expecting.

The professional career record for Arreola is W38 L6 with 33 of his wins coming by a knockout.

Chris Arreola has won only two of his last six fights now, with two losses and a no-contest in that span.

Since that loss to Deontay Wilder in July 2016, he has only fought three times and none of those were against anything near as strong as Ruiz Jr.

We don’t quite see him sticking the distance against the quick hands of his opponent.

The bookmakers have Arreola as a big 8/1 underdog in boxing betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

This could be a gruelling fight for him.


Andy Ruiz jr vs Chris Arreola Betting Advice

The most likely outcome in this one is that Andy Ruiz Jr gets the win stopping his opponent.

We see it coming later in the fight so the 7-12 round group betting option at 11/8 looks like a good option to roll with for boxing betting* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Ruiz Jr should be too strong and sharp for his opponent at the end of the day.
