Anthony Joshua is willing to fight Andy Ruiz Jr on ‘neutral ground’, but the British heavyweight star would love the rematch to be staged in Cardiff.

Joshua’s second world title fight with Ruiz Jr is yet to be confirmed following the Mexican’s shock victory at Madison Square Garden in New York, although Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn has suggested a final decision is edging closer.

Ruiz Jr has voiced his displeasure at the prospect of travelling to the UK, with Joshua remaining respectful of his wishes, but the Brit admits that home advantage could be crucial in a defining fight for his career.
