Former heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, will face Andy Ruiz for the second leg of their showdown to hold in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
With barely five days to the much-anticipated rematch, a report from Saudi Arabia has confirmed that the British-Nigerian born fighter will rake in a staggering $85 million whether he wins or loses the fight.
The rematch, dubbed clash of the dunes, was scheduled to hold in Cardiff City after Joshua triggered a rematch clause in his contract with Ruiz’s promoters.
