Andy Ruiz who shocked the world on June 1st after knocking out Anthony Joshua of UK/Nigeria to win all the four belts of the Heavyweight IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO may not honor his contract to fight AJ in Saudi Arabia.
Money is the problem not the venue, when he signed the first contract, he had 5.5m pound and if he wins he would get 8.5m pounds, that was the original contract.
Andy Ruiz won got paid 5.5m pounds now to defend the belts he has to be paid 8.8m pounds as originally stated, but Saudi Arabia is putting more on the table and Andy Ruiz the first Mexican to win Boxin Heavyweight wants a piece of it.
Until this is reviewed, December 7th 2019 fight may be in the limbo, why would he not get more than AJ the challenger seems to be the question everyone is asking.
Saudi Arabia was able to beat Dubai to host the fight with almost 83m dollars in bidding purse, and why should Andy Ruiz the Champion be paid only 8.5m pounds based on his contract?
At the same timeFans are not happy AJ took the fight to Saudi Arabia instead of UK, some mentioned human right abuse of Saudi Arabia as if Boxing is not a game of human abuse on its own.
