    Default Ruiz $9 Million / AJ $60 Million - Ruiz to be stripped of belts

    Read this on a few sites today; Joshua gets a huge slice of the pie $$ for the rematch and Ruiz point blank won't fight anywhere but the US/Mexico.

    Ruiz team seem to think there's "another contract" they've yet to sign for this rematch.?

    Long story short if Ruiz refuses to fight he'll be out of action and lose his belts.

    I don't think this fight will happen 😉

    If Eddie can do press conferences to announce fights without fighters the next step is obvious. Eddie can do the fight without fighters.

    Let’s not be silly, if the IBF just granted him an exemption to fight Joshua then Ruiz is doing his proper paperwork. It’s evidence he intends to fight Joshua otherwise he wouldn’t bother filing with the IBF. Eddie, and more importantly the wildly inept DAZN people, need to step up and make the fight happen. They desperately need Ruiz, so pay like desperate people pay and everyone is happy

    Yup rematch clauses are insurance policies....you didn't realize this? This is all a part of the game.

    I think that Ruiz is going to accept. He just said that he wanted it to be in the US or Mexico. He wouldn’t turn down that big of payday. He also went into the first fight knowing that in case of a rematch, he has no say in the venue.

    Used to be I didn't care who won. Now the more I read the more I'd love for the 2nd fight to end just like the 1st fight or worse.

    I agree, I think Ruiz wants a bigger slice of the pie and I think he will get it.

    I was rooting for AJ to win the rematch destructively because I want the AJ/Wilder fight to happen. But Eddie is such a constant lying dirtbag.... Hard not to root against all his fighters. In the end I will root for AJ, but phony AJ and Eddie make it hard.

    Lewis had to sue Rahman to force him to honour the rematch clause. The fact he won, which cost Rahman millions, would suggest Andy/Al Haymon will be doing this fight.

    One of Lennox arguments for the immediate rematch was that he was near the end of his career and had Manny Stewart go on the stand to explain that to the judge.

    Ruiz is just playing hard ball and I think eventually have the rematch once he gets paid an even huge amount than what is in his contract.

    For sure, Ruiz - well, his army of managers/advisers/lawyers - is merely playing the game. Those figures ($9 million/$60 million) are clearly guesses made by the media, the actual contracts are never seen by anyone but the tiny group it concerns.

    It's laughable to think multi-millionaire ruthless businessmen air their real business in public.


    Lewis's courtroom victory was instantly hailed as a landmark judgment by his New York-based lawyer, Judd Burstein. "In years to come Lewis v Rahman will be the case cited in all such hearings," said Burstein. Moments after the judgment a shellshocked Rahman was asked his views as he made his way down the courtroom steps. "If I don't get the purse I want, I won't fight," he fumed. This, however, is one rematch the champion would seemingly be wise to avoid. "If Rahman doesn't fight Lennox I'll hit him with a lawsuit for $10 million damages," warned Burstein.

    Aj getting nearly 7 times what ruiz is getting?

    This pisses me off. I'm all for rematch clauses but no way a challenger should get more.

    I like AJ but not a huge fan, and I'm liking the way ruiz is coming across. I also want to see fury school Joshua but it could be I start to root for Ruiz here - who I do expect to win still.

    Ruiz can't start bitching now because he's already signed the original contract and agreed the rematch split $$ which is why I think he'll pull out and be stripped.

    The figures are nonsense (unverifiable), click-bait, AJ won't be getting close to that amount.

    1st fight - it was reported AJ got $35m to Ruiz $5 million (7-times more).

    2nd fight - it is reported Ruiz will get $9 million, it doesn't take a genuis to multiply 9-by-7 - $63m. If Ruiz purse was reported as $20m these same fake guessers would be reporting AJ's is $140m.

    Didn't know rematch clauses had purse split agreements in them. That should be negotiable.

    I do get it that hearn gave him the shot mind.

    If this fight falls through its another major fuck up for the sport.

    The Saudis have pumped a SHITLOAD of dollars into this fight, they're building a brand new outdoor open air arena just for the fight so i reckon the figures are easily about right.

    Ruiz would be a fool if he does refuse to fight.
