Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn says that the British boxer "doesn't remember anything after the third round" during his shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr last weekend.

Ruiz reportedly earned around £5m for the first fight at Madison Square Garden, while Joshua pocketed around £20m for the fight.

It's no secret that Ruiz Jr is a huge fan of the famous chocolate bar and is even known to consume them whilst training for a fight.

Joshua got the fight off to a good start having knocked the Mexican down earlier in the game but could not maintain the momentum in the later parts of the encounter.

The pair have agreed terms for a rematch which will take place at the end of the year, giving Joshua the chance of reclaiming his belts from Ruiz. "If they want me to go over there, they've got to give me $50million".

Bu it's unlikely Joshua will be too anxious about taking ownership of the novelty belt when he meets Ruiz Jr for the rematch, which has been touted for either November or December.

"Yeah, I think they did say November, December but right now my team, they're negotiating everything right now".

The new champion continued: "I would love it to be here in the United States or in Mexico". It all depends on the team and what they negotiate. "It they wanna come over there, you know - it's just negotiations".
