JOSHUA, RUIZ JR REMATCH ON


Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr will square off again on December 7 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Joshua lost the belts in a shock defeat to Ruiz Jr on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. Promoter Eddie Hearn reportedly secured a sum of over $40million (£33.3m) from Saudi Arabia backers to host the fight.

Ruiz Jr’s purse is said to be around $9m (£7.5m) as was already agreed in the contract for the first fight, which contained this rematch clause. Therefore, Joshua will pick up the lion’s share of the money despite the fact he has been deposed as champion and is fighting to regain his belts.
