so apparently Ruiz's purse was set in the contract for the first fight. He won't get any of the Saudi money. that is some serious bullshit.

There's no way he takes this fight without coming out better (financially) than the first fight. He holds all the cards.

Yep. That first contract might as well be toilet paper. Joshua is nothing without avenging the loss. He got brutally knocked out. It's going to be out there forever. Like when Rahman knocked out Lennox Lewis.

The WWE guys that wrestle there get bigger payouts than WrestleMania.

And it will absolutely be sold out, with zero women in the crowd.

Completely different knockouts. Have you seen either fight?

AJ got his ass beat and didn't want to answer the bell. LL got slept by a Hail Mary punch from an average heavyweight and dominated him in the rematch.

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, is attempting to force Ruiz into honoring the first contract for a $9 mill rematch. 

Ruiz won’t take the fight without a significant pay raise.

Fight isn’t official yet.

Not should he, he’s the champ and they are getting $70m for it, he should get way more than $9m

I wasn't talking about the fight. I was talking about the need for a rematch, in an immediate sense. Lewis had to beat Rahman, and Don King (Rahman's promoter) instead signed a defense against David Izon. Lewis sued to enforce his rematch clause, but Rahman got a HUGE pay bump, to $10 million.

If Joshua wants Ruiz, they've got to show Andy the monaaaay.
