    Will certainly be streaming this one regardless of how good the card is.

    Shall donate the PPV fee to Amnesty international.

    Of course anywhere other than the UK is a problem for most UK fans.. It's not cheap. Of course most UK fans will be watching on the TV. Most UK fans would be watching on TV even if it was in Cardiff.....

    Amidst rumours that Andy Ruiz hasn't agreed to this fight, Ruiz has 'unretweeted' a tweet last night from DAZN confirming the fight, and PBC on Fox have apparently removed their tweet about the fight.

    More drama to come it appears.

    Oh ffs. Serious?? I just want to see this fight. I don't care if it's on the moon at 5 o clock in the morning. Please just get the bloody fight done. What could've possibly gone wrong 24 hours after an official announcement?

    They've done the poster and everything! "Clash on the Dunes". As names go, it's not a good one.

    How about; "Ding Dong in Diriyah".

    This is a money grab, simple as. Ruiz has a fixed purse already agreed in the contract. Greedy Hearn and Joshua are only staging it in SA for the cash. Hearn probably trying to cash out in case Joshua gets chinned again. Coppinger saying Ruiz not happy and won’t sign off on venue unless he gets a bigger slice of the pie. Can’t blame him really. As it stands, the rematch is in doubt and could be heading to the courts.

    @SambaKing1993 think you might be onto something. Joyce’s manager, Sam Jones, has just tweeted this:

    Something tells me the fight won’t end up in Saudi Arabia

    The man is a bit of a tool so would love to be the first to have the ‘scoop’ if he’s heard something..

    Any chance Sky have seen the outrage and are the ones backing out?

    Bung Ruiz a load to take the fall for the moving of venues? And save face?

    Everything AJ has done has been a perfectly managed act, and the hero status is starting to derail.

    Him giving the range rover to his old coach was one of the most wanky things I have ever seen. Doing it with a Full BBC camera crew a couple weeks before a PPV fight. Reasons seem genuine.

    You can decide how much you believe of any publication and some deserve less than others. The Metro (yeah) state this:

    "The Athletic’s Mike Coppinger reports that ‘in excess of $40m (£33.3m)’ was paid as a site fee, but the exact details of how the deal was financed are, as yet, unclear. Ruiz is set to receive just £7.5m for the rematch as his purse for a rematch was guaranteed in the contract of the first fight."

    Why would Andy bother? Take it to court, let the belts be split up.

    That's not what I want at all, but fighting for that percentage is madness. - as per Gymbot's post earlier.

    Daym, who would have thought the biggest fight in the world would be held in the town which was the original powerbase of Wahhabism.

    Sounds like a soundbite from Hearn to his favourite public schoolboy journo aka Gareth "the fop" Davies, grew legs before Big Al gave the nod. Lel.
