Tyson Fury Finally Reacts to Anthony Joshua Beating Andy Ruiz Jr

Tyson Fury has broken his silence on Anthony Joshua reclaiming the world titles against Andy Ruiz Jr and he's aimed a dig at his heavyweight rival.

Joshua beat Ruiz Jr on points to recapture the WBA (super), IBF and WBO belts in Saudi Arabia, and his long-time rival Fury has congratulated him on his victory.

"Fair play to AJ, he outboxed a fella who knocked him out before. It takes a lot of guts and boxing ability. I thought he looked fantastic. I've heard the criticism. I'd rather win and stink the place out than lose in a very entertaining fight," the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' said.

But Fury also took a swipe at Ruiz Jr vs. Joshua II by claiming boxing fans are more interested in his upcoming rematch with Deontay Wilder.

"Let's face it, no-one's really interested in Ruiz and Joshua," he added. "They're just two other heavyweights on a collision course. The real fight is me and Wilder. This is the biggest heavyweight fight of my lifetime. Won't be a bigger one any time soon."

Ruiz Jr entered the championship contest 15lbs heavier than the first fight with Joshua and Fury has reacted to him ballooning up in weight.

"Well, everyone to their own. I can't call out anyone out on what they do because I've made many mistakes and will continue to do so," he explained.

"Maybe he ate too many chocolates or pizzas. Whatever he was eating he came in a little bit too heavy and couldn't get his shots off."

Fury's set to rematch Deontay Wilder early next year for the WBC heavyweight world title.
