    I guess the place was chosen to let Anthony get his 'stamina' again... anywhere in civilization he could not use his magic juice...

    Ruiz couldn't come on stage, he was at the back scoffing his face with jaffa cakes, while the bodybuilder Joshua was lying on the beach somewhere in Dubai laughing that he don't need to train for this one, because he's got his special supplements delivered to him from Dubai.

    I feel Ruiz can outpoint AJ, he has faster hands and is harder to counter.

    You're wrong. It's a weird stipulation that isn't typical for a person getting a title shot.

    Lol Rumble in the jungle my ass. These guys are not Ali and Frazier.

    It’s just a normal rematch involving two regular fighters and whether it be in Saudi Arabia or not, i dont see no missed opportunity.

    The major sanctioning bodies should :
    1. Ban rematch clauses
    2. Stipulate that a champion always gets at least 50% of the total purse monies (barring unification matches, where it could be at least 30%).

    These would give boxing some integrity as a sport and bring some credibility to the titles.

    Contracts can be challenged under the Mohammed Ali act. In fact it is one of the main directives of the Mohammed Ali act.

    So if Ruiz, the champion, is only getting 9 mil, while Hearn and AJ pockets the rest of an 80 million pot, then that's an exploitive contract even if everyone signs. All ruiz and his team would need to do is bring it to court. What's more likely to happen is that Hearn will guarantee Ruiz more money so it never gets to that, but that Act will be there for any fighter that believes they were exploited by a promoter.

    Going by the Khan fight and WWE events, events in Saudi have a weird feel to them

    and not in a good way

    I'm sure you're right. It will probably be put on at a stupid local time in Saudi of like 1am Sunday so the UK PPV is unaffected. It's the only way this fight can get anywhere near the ~80mn pot Eddie has put out there.

    Very odd that he's saying these things publically if there's not something in it. Interesting that Ruiz hasn't commented on the social media announcement.

    I still think he’s just saying that to get as much out of Hearn and the rematch as possible.
