Andy Ruiz Jr Has Slammed Dillian Whyte Yet Again After Brutal Alexander Povetkin KO

Andy Ruiz Jr has told Dillian Whyte to "stop playing the victim card" following his shock loss to Alexander Povetkin.


Whyte suffered a brutal KO defeat to Povetkin last weekend in the main event of Eddie Hearn's final Matchroom Fight Camp.

The Brit is desperate to reclaim his spot as mandatory challenger to WBC champion Tyson Fury and has requested a rematch with the Russian.

Former WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO champion Ruiz Jr, who has history with 'The Body Snatcher', has slammed Whyte's reaction to the loss.

"Stop playing the 'victim' card bro," he begun.

"You talk all this s**t, disrespect your opponents at weigh-ins, post stupid memes and now we gotta feel sorry for you cause you got KO'd??"

It comes just a week after the 30-year-old admitted he was happy to see Whyte "get his a** knocked the f**k out."

"I was so happy that Whyte got his f**king a*** knocked the f**k out," the Mexican-American said.

"You know what, because he doesn't have respect for the fighters - that's what gets me p***ed off."

Ruiz hasn't fought since losing his losing his titles to Anthony Joshua back in December.

Meanwhile, Whyte is desperate for his rematch and is hounding Hearn "every day" to get it.

He told Sky Sports earlier this week: "I'm good and secondly I just want to say thanks to everyone, all the fans and all the support. It's been amazing.

"I've never been this excited for a fight before in my life. I was excited for the first fight. Now, it's like turning pro all over again. I'm buzzing.

"I want to go to training now. I'm forcing myself to take the two weeks' rest. It's all good. I learn quick. I just can't wait to get back in there. I want to go now.

"I have been hounding Eddie every day to hear what they are saying about this rematch."

Speaking after the main event, Hearn explained the loss will have hit Whyte hard, but has has no doubts the 32-year-old will "come back" from it.

He said: "We have a rematch clause. First thing Dillian said when he came out was, 'Get me that rematch, get me that rematch.'

"We will exercise that rematch clause, we will look to make that before the end of the year.

"And listen, it's a huge fight. it's a very dangerous fight now because obviously back-to-back defeats for Dillian Whyte throws a very different shade on it.

"But I know that he'll come back from this."
