The 30-year-old fighter has played songs by Stormzy, Giggs, Burna Boy and more for his past ring walk songs, but who will he choose for his Dubai fight with Ruiz on 7th December?

Anthony Joshua is gearing up to fight Andy Ruiz once again following his defeat back in June, and fans have long been wondering what he was going to choose as his ring walk song.

In an attempt to regain his world heavyweight titles, the 30-year-old will face Ruiz on Saturday 7th December in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia - but what will he choose as his entrance song?

Burna Boy, Stormzy and Giggs have all provided Joshua's walk-out songs in the past, with Stormzy even performing live for him in the past. However, this time, AJ chose to walk out to some huge anthems, with no live performer.

    AJ walked out to Burna Boy's 'Ye' before his shock loss against Andy Ruiz Jr. at New York's world famous Madison Square Garden in June 2019.

    Both Burna Boy and Anthony Joshua have Nigerian ancestry, so could AJ soundtrack his upcoming ring walk with another Nigerian artist?

    AJ also played another song before 'Seven Nation Army' during the ring walk prior to his Klitschko match.
