Mexican-American boxer, Andy Ruiz insists he will only agree to a rematch with Anthony Joshua in the UK if he is paid £40million.

Anthony Joshua activated his rematch clause with the new champion just a few days after suffering a humiliating defeat to the Mexican heavyweight. While Eddie Hearn claims Team AJ have final say on when and where the rematch is staged, Ruiz warned Joshua he will not come to the UK if his purse demands are rejected.

‘Right now my team, they’re negotiating everything right now. I’ve just got to stay busy, stay healthy and be ready for the rematch. I’d love it to be here in the United States or in Mexico you know.

It all depends on the team and what they negotiate. ‘If they want me to go over there, they’ve got to give me $50million. If they want to come over here…It’s just negotiations you know’ he told Fight Hub.

Ruiz reportedly earned around £5m for the first fight at Madison Square Garden, while Joshua pocketed around £20m for the fight.
