Andy Ruiz Jr. and Anthony Joshua this saturday will fight again. Just now Joshua is the challenger and Ruiz is the champion. But still Joshua who is got much more money than Ruiz. Before the first fight, Ruiz signed a contract that included a fixed amount for the rematch.

So the Mexican boxer had no choice, he needs to accept the money Eddie Hearn offered him. And according to various sources, it’s about $ 10-13 million (USD). While Joshua has $ 60 million in some sources, and $ 85 million in other sources. Whichever amount is true, far more than what Ruiz gets. They are both set to earn career-high fight purses for their highly-anticipated heavyweight rematch.

Joshua is still the A-side in this matchup. So he and his promoter Eddie Hearn said the conditions, they decide in almost everything. But if Ruiz will win again, he will say the conditions and he will got the much money.
