Joshua, who arrived in the country over the weekend, will be looking to regain the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO title belts after his shock defeat.

Ruiz floored Joshua four times en route to a seventh-round stoppage at Madison Square Garden, handing the Brit his first defeat as a professional.

The first-ever heavyweight world title fight to take place in the Middle East will be staged in the 15,000-seat Diriyah Arena.
