Deontay Wilder believes Andy Ruiz Jr will repeat history when he faces Anthony Joshua for the IBF, WBA and WBO belts on Saturday, December 9.

"I really do think he has his number," Wilder told Business Insider.
"There's no way [Ruiz Jr.] can be a lucky puncher. This man landed multiple times, that's a lot of lucky punches."
The WBC champion has twice taken on Bermaine Stiverne and Luis Ortiz and he is looking up to the rematch with Tyson Fury in February, 2020.
And the American believes Ruiz has a psychological advantage over Joshua owing to his win in their first bout.
"We're in a dangerous sport," Wilder said. "Somebody's gonna get knocked out and you just hope it's not gonna be you."
"I'm telling you, from a fighter's point of view, when you're knocking a guy down like that multiple times, you know what to expect and know what to do the second time.
"Try and do the same thing you did the first time, the second time. "You've figured out his weaknesses."
