Andy Ruiz Jr is furious with Tyson Fury for attempting to represent Mexico during a open-workout by donning a Mexican wrestling mask and waving the country's flag.
Fury faces Otto Wallin in Las Vegas on Saturday and before taking on the undefeated Swedish fighter, the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' appeared in front of fans in a public workout and his stunt has angered the unified heavyweight champion.

The undefeated British fighter turned up to his media obligation in a Mexican wrestler's mask before waving their flag while in the ring as the country celebrates its Independence day anniversary this weekend.
Ruiz Jr, who became the very first fighter with Mexican heritage to win a boxing heavyweight world title, was left raging after Fury's actions.
"Tyson Fury's next," he angrily said. "Tyson Fury's talking s***, he's representing Mexico - he's not even Mexican, what kind of s*** is that?
"A British f******, he ain't even Mexican, wearing the f****** Mexican flag, messed up man.
"Stay in your lane, represent your country, Tyson Fury represent your country, represent what you represent."
Stay in your lane.

Of course, Ruiz Jr rematches Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia on December 7 and while the fight has been dubbed as the biggest rematch of the year, Fury insists he won't be watching his rivals go to battle.
"No interest at all. Don't care, won't even watch it," he said ahead of his ring return.
"December 7, I'll be busy. I've got no interest in watching that fight because I've got no interest in those motherf*****s. Not one bit."
Fury's in line to rematch Deontay Wilder for the WBC world title if he beats Wallin.
