Official London screenings of Ruiz Jr vs. Joshua II, staged by promoter Matchroom Boxing, will be held at Boxpark Croydon and Boxpark Wembley.

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!”

Here we look at the details of where to watch the fight in the capital and around the United Kingdom.
