Andy Ruiz Jr demands more money to agree Anthony Joshua rematch

Saudis splash $40m on Joshua Ruiz Jr rematch Report | Andy Ruiz Jr. will not sign off on Anthony Joshua rematch

Hang on. The supposed confirmed rematch between Unified Heavyweight Champion Andy Ruiz and former Champion, Anthony Joshua, slated for Saudi Arabia December 7th isn't a done deal, yet.

This month Anthony Joshua said he was determined to get his "passion" back for boxing ahead of the rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.

He's already getting around $9 million (£7.5 million) to fight the Brit in December, but apparently wants "significantly" more before he agrees to the bout. If his Snapchat is anything to go by, he seems to have cut a considerable amount of muscle off his physique, as he prepares for his highly-anticipated second encounter with Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.

The rematch had been widely touted but Cardiff's Principality Stadium was tipped as favorite to stage the event.

The official press conference to formerly announce the fight is due to take place at The Savoy in London on Monday, August 12.

Joshua suffered the first defeat of his career at Madison Square Garden in June as he was knocked down four times before Ruiz sealed his surprise victory in the seventh round.

"Despite some long-overdue reforms on women's rights, Saudi Arabia is now in the grip of a sweeping human rights crackdown - with women's rights activists, lawyers and members of the Shia minority community all being targeted", he added.

In February this year, the Saudis hosted their maiden European Tour golf event which was won by former world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, while the world's most gruelling motor sports race, the Dakar Rally, will be staged in the kingdom next year.

Last month, British boxer Amir Khan won the World Boxing Council worldwide welterweight title with a fourth-round stoppage of Australian Billy Dib in Jeddah.

"It doesn't matter to me where it is", Joshua said.

"When I was there last, it had all changed". "They had a huge concert where everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves".

But according to The Athletic "in excess" of £33m was paid as a site fee for the fight held in Saudi Arabia.

"Maybe now they are changing to make it that new place where people can enjoy themselves and it's fair for women".

'But I think behind the scenes, the efforts, the education, the mind training that it takes to develop these skills and capabilities to be in that position are tiring.
