The newly crowned world champion, Andy Ruiz Jr, 29, will only get  a paltry sum of £5million after his significant victory over Anthony Joshua, 29,  at Madison Square Garden, while Joshua will be having the fatter cash. 

The Mexican boxer knocked down the British/Nigerian boxer four times, before forcing a seventh-round stoppage to dethrone the WBA, WBO and IBF champion and became the first Mexican-American heavyweight world champion.
