Anthony Joshua set to more than DOUBLE his net worth from Andy Ruiz Jr rematch by earning £59m, claims Jarrell Miller – The Sun

ANTHONY JOSHUA will earn a career best pay-day in his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr by pocketing £59million – according to rival Jarrell Miller.

The potential purse for his Saudi Arabia showdown on December 7 would see AJ double his net worth, with Forbes already valuing the heavyweight at £43m.

American mouth-piece Miller, 31, was set to face Joshua, 30, before he failed multiple voluntary pre-fight drug tests allowing Ruiz to swoop in and score a 25-1 upset in New York.

And after watching Brit star AJ drop to the canvas four times on the way to a seventh round defeat in June only to double his purse in the rematch – “Big Baby” is eyeing a Middle East bout of his own.

Miller told FightHub: “Nobody has never fought in Saudi Arabia.

“Them fighting in America would have been different. I know the atmosphere would have been different. Andy was hungry [for the first fight].

“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 a**, I’m going to Saudi too. We’ll see.”

After Miller’s doping bust in May the New Yorker was slapped with a six month suspension by the WBA and told by promoter Eddie Hearn he was no longer welcome on DAZN.

The ex-kickboxer also missed out on the chance to face Tyson Fury this summer in Las Vegas as he was without a license.

But with suspension now up Miller revealed he is closing in on a return, needing only to secure a promotional company to work with.

He added: “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?.

“I wouldn’t say officially, but their paperwork is the closest one to what I kind of want. But nothing’s official. I haven’t signed with nobody yet.”
