Andy Ruiz Jr Calls Out Tyson Fury After He Struggled Past Otto Wallin In Las Vegas
Andy Ruiz Jr was far from impressed with Tyson Fury's victory over Otto Wallin in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
The WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion gave a mocking assessment of Fury's points victory at T-Mobile Arena.
Fury suffered a nasty cut in the third round from an accidental clash of heads, but overcame the scare to beat his Swedish opponent by unanimous decision.
Many expected Fury to win more comfortably than he did, including Ruiz Jr.
After that performance theres no way he beats me with a hand tied behind his back.- AndyRuizjr (@Andy_destroyer1) September 15, 2019
After the fight, the 30-year-old Californian tweeted: "After that performance theres no way he beats me with a hand tied behind his back."
