Vegas would probably be the place to go.
Fair point.

If I was Ruiz I wouldn't be coming to the UK. Perhaps AJ's camp are being clever, knowing a neutral venue is more likely if they suggest the UK first.

maybe (although if they were bright it would of been in the contract to have a rematch in the UK, since he has only won at home,) its all about games and who has the power.

AJ's camp have said the re-match will be in the UK so they must have made sure there re-match clause was heavily in there favour but reports that Ruiz may have a mandatory defence for one of the belts to schedule.

Ruiz got £8m for his new York fight so as champ he may get a much bigger pay day when the re-match happens.

Hit by a car, right?

A name I've always known, partly due to computer games strangely enough, but never really watched much of him over the years. I've seen people put him above Mayweather in terms of defensive fighters. Pretty high praise.

Crazy that you survive all those years as a boxer, then get run over by a car.

I don’t really remember seeing much of him either but knew at the time he was regarded as one the very best P4P boxers in the world with Roy Jones Jr.

He also won gold at the 1984 LA Olympics which was of USA’s greatest ever boxing teams. Whittaker wasn’t as box office as Jones Jr, probably because of their contrasting styles.
