    Lol, just saw a video clip of the guy in an interview saying that if they want the rematch in the UK, they better pay me $50 million. He is the A side and has all the belts and he put on a thorough ***** slapping ass beating on that chinny quitter, they better pay up

    I'd be playing the same cards. Would also make sure there's another rematch clause.

    Hearn's getting Hearned and it's glorious.

    There is also a recent interview with Adam Smith Sky (below) where is he is very scatty about where the rematch will be. He doesn't specifically nail down the UK and says it may well be in the US. Given that this is coming from the Sky boxing rep himself, seems like that contract wasn't so watertight afterall. My guess is is that it was solid on financials in terms of the dreaded percentages, less so on the venue and now Haymon's lawyers are ripping apart the financials bit on account of Ruiz being the one with the assets.

    You cant price yourself out of a rematch clause. Fight will happen regardless of Ruizs demands.

    when boxers like ruiz, who are not even the b side, more like the d side, sign these contracts they basically sign there life away to get these fights. Hearn probably has all the details glued in the contract so I am sure he calls all the shots. And if ruiz tries to budge they will sue his fat ass. he's a 1 hit wonder

    He has 4 belts, he is just asking for a fair payday, if he was trying to squeeze money out of the desperate Hearn, he would have asked for much more (price of Joshua career), 50 M for a UK fight where Joshua will come in ozzing with confidence...90k cheering him on, music beats in SyNC with the viens pumping energy and the war juices...Andy Ruiz is a humble man, hopefully he is sponsored by MCD, Blood Red on Gold will look great on him
