Boxing news: Deontay Wilder reveals he plans to stream Andy Ruiz vs Anthony Joshua rematch via friend’s FaceTime

Deontay Wilder has revealed he plans to watch the Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua rematch via alternative means, as he still hasn’t downloaded DAZN.

The new US streaming service, which launched with Eddie Hearn’s stable of boxers last year, are direct competitors to Wilder’s broadcasters and even tried to sign him earlier this year.

However, the WBC heavyweight champion ultimately stayed loyal to Al Haymon’s PBC broadcast partners Showtime/FOX amid a tense landscape in boxing politics.

AJ’s rematch with Ruiz Jr is the biggest fight on DAZN at the end of this year and bares massive relevance to Wilder as the winner will be his fellow heavyweight champion.

When asked if he’d be attending the bout in Saudi Arabia, the American told ThaBoxingVoice: “Nah, I ain’t gonna be able to attend. I got a lot of s*** going on.

“I’mma try to watch it, we’ll see what happens. I don’t have – what is it going to be on? DAZN?

“My homeboy’s probably gonna call me and we’ll FaceTime each other.”

Pressed further on the questionable way he plans to witness the fight, Wilder explained: “Nah, it’s just, I say that because it’s been the routine ever since it came out.

“I never thought about downloading it because every time the fight comes somebody will hit me who already has got it on.

“I’ll be watching it through that. When you get into a habit of some s*** you already know what to expect, like, ‘Alright, they’re gonna call me.’

“I’mma keep the tradition alive, why change it?”
