Pay-television broadcaster RMC Sport has acquired exclusive rights in France for the heavily-anticipated boxing rematch between Andy Ruiz Jr. and Anthony Joshua.

The fight will take place in Diriyah on December 7, after Saudi Arabia in August fought off competition from several other nations to land the hosting rights to the event.

The fight follows on from Ruiz’s shock victory over Joshua at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1.

Altice-owned RMC Sport has broadcast Joshua’s fights since it was formed in 2016.
