'Anthony Joshua Is Getting $75 Million' For Andy Ruiz Fight In Saudi Arabia
Jarrell Miller claims Anthony Joshua will be receiving a whopping $75 million (£59 million) for his heavyweight world title rematch against Andy Ruiz.
Joshua is hoping to reclaim his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles on December 7 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia and according to the Big Baby, he will also be getting the biggest pay-day of his career by far.
"Nobody has never fought in Saudi Arabia, so I don't know," Miller told FighthubTV when quizzed on the fight, as per boxing247.com.
"Them fighting in America would have been different. I know the atmosphere would have been different. Andy was hungry [for the previous fight with Joshua].
"Has Andy kind of settled down the last couple of months? Is AJ more hungry now? In Saudi Arabia, what can be done, and what can be tolerated? I don't know. So when you hear that...and he got his a- whooped, and he's getting $75 million. Listen, when I beat their ass, I'm going to Saudi too. We'll see."
Miller was originally slated to face Joshua at Madison Square Garden in June but tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance mere days before the fight.

Ruiz would then take the fight last-minute and end up putting in a scintillating performance whereby he floored Joshua on a number of occasions en route to becoming world champion in the seventh round.
Their second bout will take place in Saudi, where Amir Khan fought in a £7 million fight back in July. It sounds like Joshua will be getting a much higher purse than what he normally gets for main eventing a MatchRoom Boxing card.
Mille, meanwhile, has been out of action for over a year but is targeting a return before 2019 is up.
"Yeah, we've been in the gym, and going through the motions really. It's a little bit different when you get a fight signed. Hopefully, late November or early December. I don't know when exactly, but I'm working on it," said Miller.
"Big Baby is almost back. I am back. I'm going to figure which team to go with. It could be ESPN, it could be Fox, and it could be DAZN,"
"We don't know yet. Money talks. I don't know yet, but we'll see, you know?"
