Andy Ruiz Jr Calls For A Match Against Tyson Fury After Anthony Joshua Rematch

Andy Ruiz Jr is eyeing up a big-money fight with Tyson Fury after his upcoming rematch with Anthony Joshua.

The Mexican-American boxer, 29, is set to defend his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles before the end of 2019 against 'AJ.'


But Ruiz is already planning for the future and has his eyes set on bouts with the undefeated Fury, 30, and WBC champ Deontay Wilder, 33.

"When I win [against Joshua], I'd love to fight Tyson Fury," he told The Joe Rogan Experience.

"[Deontay] Wilder's there, too. He has the belt that I want, I want the WBC belt...

"I'll be undisputed if I have that belt, I'll have all the belts in the heavyweight division and I'll be the new king.

"Tyson Fury, I think he's one of the biggest names out there."

Fury has previously slammed Ruiz by calling him a "bum" and a "fat f****r" following his stunning upset against Joshua, 29, in June.

Ruiz produced a sensational comeback against Joshua at Madison Square Garden in New York City to hand the Brit his first professional defeat.

The unified heavyweight champ wants the rematch to take place in the US, but Joshua's camp is pushing for the bout to take place in the UK.

Cardiff's Principality Stadium is the favourite to host the rematch on 14th December, while Madison Square Garden on 29th November is another date and venue being considered.

Ruiz also revealed that he is getting into much better shape for his clash with Joshua.

"I want to be more toned, just shock the world even more, you know? I'll have more ability, more speed, more power if I turn the little flab I have into muscle," he said.

"I'm not trying to be with six-pack abs and big muscles and all that.

"None of that, you know. But just look a little different and more lean.

"That's something I'm working on now, choosing the right foods.

"If not, I would be eating a three-patty hamburger with bacon and all kinds of cheese."

Who will win the rematch?
