The rematch had originally been set to take place in Britain - either in London or Cardiff - but Ruiz reportedly requested a neutral venue.

In doing so, he walked away with the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles, becoming Mexico's first world champion in the division.

World heavyweight boxing champion Andy Ruiz Jr wants his December title rematch with Anthony Joshua in NY instead of Saudi Arabia.

On Monday Joshua's promoter held a press conference to confirm the fight will take place in Diriyah on the outskirts of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on 7 December and confirmed Ruiz Jr had "100% signed the contract for this fight".

"I know everyone is talking about the fight and all that", Ruiz said on Tuesday in a live Instagram chat.

"I'm not going to tip-tap around boxing because we know where that got us last time don't we so I believe it's going to be him or me [getting knocked out]". Of course but it's gonna be on my terms and our terms, we're gonna bring it back here in the United States'.

More information is expected to be released during the fight's press tour in September which travels to Saudi Arabia, London and NY. "It's like I said, I don't have no protection over there (Saudi Arabia)".

Ruiz, however, is not sold on the idea of the bout taking place in Saudi Arabia. So, in his initial agreement, Ruiz's purse for a potential rematch in case he won was already specified - around $9 million, according to sources - as was the acknowledgement that Joshua's side would control the event, meaning the site, the date, the location, any broadcast deals, etc.

Back in June, the British fighter succumbed to his first defeat as a professional, with Andy Ruiz Jr stunning the sporting world in Madison Square Garden. If Ruiz is inactive for too long, he risks forfeiting the title. Ruiz-Joshua II is probably worth nine figures overall.

Hearn said a Saudi title fight might be a game changer for boxing. "Look, United States of America wants to. never mind, I can't say nothing". In the event Joshua wins the rematch and depending on how that fight plays out, we could end up with a part three blowing all of these mandatories out of the picture altogether.

Brown could not be reached for comment.
