    Don’t think it’s there. Ruiz is on record saying it is agreed and won’t be held in the UK.

    I think if it was straight forward and Cardiff was the venue, it would’ve been announced by now. Hearn seems to be saying to expect an announcement ‘within days’ for several weeks now.

    I see Lennox Lewis pushing for the venue to be Mexico! That would be epic.

    Rumors abound the rematch clause is currently serving as a handy liner for Al Haymon's cat litter tray.

    I don’t think it’s gonna be the U.K...

    He wants to respect Ruiz’s reluctance to fight here, whilst pretty much saying ‘he’ll fight where we want him to fight though’.

    Why I’m I getting Mexico vibes? Azteca stadium.

    DAZN would love that!

    I see Hearn has been dropping the Chinese Bird’s Nest Stadium into conversations. I doubt that will be the location for this fight but they were defo planning to fight that big Chinese bum there during their ducking Wilder phase.

    Would be quite embarrassing for Hearn if it’s not UK. He’s been saying for months that they’d have final say on location. If it doesn’t happen here, clearly that’s not correct!

    Notice the distinct pause before "the right on that". If I get chance I'll do a breakdown about what he actually meant in this snippet. He knows enforcing "the right" basically then means Haymon throwing all kinds of legal and not so legal spanners in the works, hence why he "wants to avoid it".
