Andy Ruiz Jr Brutally Mocks Dillian Whyte After KO Defeat To Alexander Povetkin

Andy Ruiz Jr brutally mocked Dillian Whyte following his crushing defeat to Alexander Povetkin.

The Brit floored the Russian twice in the fourth round before succumbing to a vicious uppercut that floored him in the fifth round.

And heavyweight rival Ruiz Jr pulled no punches as he aimed a dig at Whyte after he lost his WBC mandatory status.

"I was so happy that Whyte got his 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."

The former unified world heavyweight champion also poked fun at Whyte on Twitter.

Ruiz Jr hasn't fought since surrendering his world titles to Anthony Joshua last year.

Whyte, meanwhile, is set to rematch Povetkin after promoter Eddie Hearn revealed that they have a rematch clause in place.

Speaking after his show, 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."
