Champ Rematch:Andy Ruiz Jr Demands £40M To Rematch Anthony Joshua In The UK


Andy Ruiz Jr has boldly demanded £40million to rematch Anthony Joshua in the UK after winning the last match in the seventh round last weekend to become heavyweight world champion.

Andy Ruiz dropped Anthony Joshua four times before stopping him in the seventh round during their last match. He triggered the rematch clause with the second fight due to take place in November or December.

“Right now my team, they’re negotiating everything right now. I’ve just got to stay busy, stay healthy and be ready for the rematch,” he told Fight Hub .

“I’d love it to be here in the United States or in Mexico you know. It all depends on the team and what they negotiate.

“If they want me to go over there, they’ve got to give me $50million. If they want to come over here… It’s just negotiations you know.”

Ruiz really wants the fight to be hosted in Mexico but that is highly unlikely with the terms of the rematch already agreed through the original contract.

Anthony Joshua is confident he will reclaim his championship at the heavyweight division.

“Congratulations to Andy Ruiz, he has six months to be champion because the belts go in the air and he’s going to have to defend against myself,” he said.
