Andy Ruiz Jr. returns to action tonight with a former two-time heavyweight title challenger.

Andy Ruiz Jr. fights tonight in a heavyweight eliminator against Cuban veteran Luis Ortiz at the Arena in Los Angeles, California.

Ruiz pulled off one of the biggest surprises in boxing in the summer of 2019 when he defeated Anthony Joshua, winning the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles.

Joshua would win them back in Saudi Arabia at the end of that year and Ruiz spent time away from the ring to recover and improve, and he defeated Chris Arreola in May last year.

Ortiz has been a stalwart in the heavyweight rankings for years, with his only defeats coming in memorable bouts against former longtime heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. Most recently, Ortiz stopped Charles Martin in the sixth round on New Year's Day in an all-action affair. 

The winner lines up themselves up for a significant fight in early 2023, while the loser has to think about their standing in the weight class.
