Tyson Fury recently said that Andy Ruiz Jr hasn’t hit the gym in the last 2 months, and has been too busy doing TV shows, riding Rolls-Royces and indulging in all kinds of publicity stunts. The Mexican fighter caused one of the biggest upsets in the history of boxing when he beat Anthony Joshua on June 1, in New York recently. Joshua is now preparing to take his revenge in their next encounter, scheduled for December 7, in Saudi Arabia.
However, Tyson Fury has learnt that the new IBF, WBO and WBA champion is completely out of shape and hasn’t been working out. The news would be melody for punters who’re backing AJ to win that rematch. Talking about betting, it’s worth noting that boxing is one of the most popular combat sports that gamblers prefer betting on. In a recent interview to Behind the Gloves, Tyson Fury stated, “If Andy Ruiz comes in, in-shape and has trained, then I think he does the same again. But one thing I know is AJ trains hard and he dedicates his life to boxing. I know that Ruiz has been running around in a lot of Rolls Royces and doing a lot of TV shows, eating a lot of tacos and he’s not been in the gym for two-and-a-half months, because I’ve been speaking to the guys and nobody’s seen him.”
Joshua itching to reclaim his titles
It has been learnt that the Mexican heavyweight fighter is expected to begin his training from August 26, with 80 days to go for his next fight with Anthony Joshua. Fury was uncertain if that training will start as scheduled or not. Everyone is hoping that Andy Ruiz would regain his fitness and possibly prove that his first win over Joshua wasn’t by fluke.
Fury emphasised that one fact he knows for sure about Antony Joshua is that the English fighter trains like a Trojan and he’d be itching to get all his titles back. In his opinion, Andy Ruiz has been the case where he has won a big fight, but he shouldn’t let the money go to his head. If the Mexican doesn’t discipline himself and starts focusing on his training routine, he’d be smashed in the December rematch.
Recently Anthony Joshua made an announcement on social media that he’d be fighting Andy Ruiz in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. His fans were majorly disappointed upon hearing this news as he had earlier claimed that he wanted the fight to happen in London. Fury believes that it doesn’t make much difference if the fight happens in Saudi Arabia or anywhere else as they are prizefighters and it is the job of Eddie Hearn to put on a good show wherever the maximum money is. So, if the money is in Saudi Arabia, the fight will happen in Saudi Arabia.
