Eddie Hearn Believes That Andy Ruiz Would Tear Deontay Wilder To Pieces
By Mike Parrott
Eddie Hearn believes that Andy Ruiz Jr. would tear Deontay Wilder into pieces after his dramatic loss to Tyson Fury.
The six heavyweight belts belong to Britain after superb victories from Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury over the past three months.
And with AJ beating Andy Ruiz Jr. on points - and Tyson Fury beating Deontay Wilder via TKO - everyone is talking about a potential Joshua-Fury showdown.
However, if Fury-Joshua goes ahead, it leaves some potential mouth-watering fights between the 'best of the rest'.
With Wilder being linked with boxers such as Dillian Whyte and Ruiz, promoter Eddie Hearn believes that Wilder would get torn into pieces by the Mexican.
"I can't wait for Andy Ruiz to come back. The fights between Ruiz and Wilder - watching Wilder the other night, Ruiz would tear Wilder to pieces," Hearn told Behind the Gloves:

The Mexican also reacted to Wilder's loss shortly after the bout, saying:
"I think Tyson Fury did an awesome job. He did everything that he had and his ability, his long reach and all that and he's the man right now."
"I was really shocked because I thought Deontay Wilder was going to win. I just want a shot with Tyson Fury as well."
