    Wilder is number two according to Forbes then Fury then Ruiz when it comes to Heavyweight Pay.

    According to the

    Despite Frank Warren's original claim that the revenue would be split 50-50, it was revealed that if the fight generated 1 million PPV buys, Wilder could make $14 million (£10.94 million) and Fury would earn around $10.25 million (£8 million). Both boxers would see this increase to their base purses after receiving their percentages from pay-per-view revenue.

    It done a third of that. Do the maths and compare it to Ruiz flat fee for fighting Joshua.

    Sad to see a couple of lads getting dragged into trolling and given time out. It's a good thread about a subject which really ought to be brought up more and not just on forums.

    Spot on. He would sell out the AT&T stadium in Texas with no problems at all against either Fury, Wilder or Joshua and would probably bank around 500k PPV buys in the US alone. That's before you dip into the boxing mad £130million Mexican PPV market. He is a massive (no pun intended) star in Mexico now who has met the president on live TV and is one win away from being single-handedly responsible for stopping Trump building his wall.

    Of course they are, its intriguing people want to see if he can do it again.

    With all the controversy of the first fight, with AJ not being right, something was wrong with him etc etc...

    "Omar Khalil, working for the Saudi agency delivering the event, said fans who purchase a ticket will automatically be issued a visa to visit the country".

    So no background checks or anything like that? How desperate they must be to get this fight.

    Hopefully Ruiz gets a bit more money. Hard to say how the £84mil is getting broken down but Ruiz should be getting more than £9mil if AJ is getting £50m+ irrespective of what was signed

    If a fighter, manager or promoter had that sort of attitude in the board room they would allow themselves to be pushed around.

    Now I remember Ward trashing his original rematch terms and drawing up a new contract for Kov II fight.
    But Kov felt robbed and wasn't willing to stall his career to go to court with Ward who was basically retired by then.

    So if Ruiz wants to bail on the contract he signed that's on him but it looks silly. They will go to court and no he will not get to fight Wilder instead of AJ.

    What I will say is Klitschkos got slated for their "slave contracts" they used to offer like 1 million quid for a voluntary and if you won you had a rematch and if ypu won that THEN you had to fight the other brother.

    Well what's good for the goose is good for the gander so if you slated Klitschkos for that then you can't give AJ a pass

    For most fighters they add value, it gets their name around and hopefully makes them popular.

    Guys like Joshua, Canelo and Mayweather before them will make big money regardless now. Joshua could make more money than 99% percent of boxers just putting on a sparring exhibition.

    Sh1t thinking about it, Mayweather actually did vs that Japanese kid.
