Tyson Fury Trolls Andy Ruiz Jr By Saying He’d Beat The Heavyweight Champion With Just One Hand
Tyson Fury has savagely mocked Andy Ruiz Jr by claiming he'd beat him with just ONE hand in another dig at the heavyweight world champion.
The lineal heavyweight champion will return to action on September 14 when he faces Otto Wallin before facing Deontay Wilder in a blockbuster rematch next year.
And ahead of taking on the undefeated Swede, he's aimed a dig at rival Ruiz Jr.
The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' believes he could beat the unified heavyweight king with one hand.
Speaking to TMZ, he said: "Listen, we never know what's going to happen in life and I can never say no to anything.
"But one thing I will say is, I will let the fans decide, which hand I put behind my back and beat Ruiz with the other hand - because I only need one hand for him."
His upcoming opponent doesn't sit well with Anthony Joshua who called Wallin a "lower-tier" heavyweight to which Fury replied by questioning Ruiz Jr's status before shocking the boxing world.
"What about Andy Ruiz then? Was he a top tier heavyweight when he fought him? He got knocked out by him," he said.
"No, he wasn't, that's the answer to that question. Nobody knew who Andy Ruiz was. He was a two-week replacement opponent.
"People only become somebody by getting an opportunity. This time last year Andy Ruiz was nobody, absolutely f**king nobody.
"Today he's heavyweight champion of the world. If he wasn't given the opportunity on two weeks notice then nobody would know his name.
"He contradicts himself quite a lot actually. AJ, you must think before you speak, you little p***y."
