    Ruiz hasn’t got a leg to stand on. Let’s be honest.

    Eddie will have a watertight contract stating that the rematch will be in a location of their choosing. Ruiz can barter and play stupid and threaten the belts but at the end of the day he’s going to get sued for breach of contract and loss of earnings. AJ stands to earn £50mil from this fight so good luck to team Ruiz.

    Part of me thinks Eddie has done this on purpose because Ruiz wouldn’t agree to Cardiff so he’s sold to the highest bidder so that the potential loss of earnings has increased to help force their hand?

    What if Ruiz decides to retire ?
    Can AJ sue his for loss of earnings for that too ?

    What happened to AJ cracking America ?
    Why isn't this being held in the USA ?
    That's the question Hearn should be asked.

    AJ has made no complaints about New York, so it's no surprise that Ruiz is suspicious of going to wherever Hearn decides.

    America cracked AJ, so he’s off to fill those cracks with sand...

    Ever heard of the Ali Act? If not I suggest you read up on it as that's clearly the route Big Andy and Uncle Al are going down. "Watertight" contracts are his problem. He had it sewn up so much in Joshua's favor, it looks like Haymon's bigtime New York lawyers have effectively ruled it null and void.

    Good luck getting an American judge to agree that Andy getting 10% as the champion is fair.

    lmfao Hearn has been had, bigtime, and has just had lots of Arabian sand just kicked in his face. This isn't going to be in Saudi.

    It's either going to be in America or nowhere. And I seriously doubt Hearn will risk the US anytime soon.

    Ruiz is gonna retire, and those shiny belts will be relinquished. Al Haymon and the bomb squad rubbing their hands for the super fight of Deontay fighting the blob to determine the real number one heavyweight. lol.

    Eddie has two choices. Put the fight in America with all the belts on the line. Take Ruiz to court, delay the fight, belts get stripped, AJ shelved (unless he wants to risk AJ losing for way less money).

    Which option is better?

    How does the contract Andy Ruiz signed violate the Ali Act?

    Interesting. So you are saying that every aspect of the contract breaches the act?

    Let’s look at it another way, we can see Ruiz giving it the big un but is he really honestly going to be saying all this stuff independent of Al Haymon? Al Haymon is the puppet master here otherwise he would be telling his fighter to pipe down.

    Ruiz seems to have an awful lot of say in the matter considering he was meant to be doing what he was told. First off he rules out the UK, then he rules out SA lmfao.

    If you're a seasoned promoter who wants to stop an upstart (in this instance; Hearn) from invading onto your patch.. this is playing out exactly how you'd want it.

    Be awkward with initial negotiations, let the rival promoter go to the trouble of picking and arranging an alternative venue.. then delay and frustrate that decision too causing them reputational damage and potential financial loss.

    I don't think this is anywhere near a done deal yet.

    Hear that? Oh yes it's the sound of construction screeching to a halt in the Arabian sun.

    When Saudi falls through, Peddie Hearns is going to be a laughing stock.
