Andy Ruiz Jr, also known as ‘The Destroyer’, is open to the possibility of facing WBC world champion Tyson Fury, following Bob Arum's comments about a potential fight between the two. Arum, who is the Top Rank boss, recently mentioned that a bout between Ruiz and Fury could take place this summer, as Fury looks for his next opponent after failing to secure an undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk.
Ruiz, who last fought in October 2020 when he outpointed Luis Ortiz, originally appeared to be in line to face Deontay Wilder in a final eliminator for the WBC world championship.
However, negotiations between the two fighters stalled, making a shot at the full world title more likely for Ruiz.
Upon hearing the news, Ruiz took to his Instagram account to share a post with quotes from Arum, along with an image of the WBC Belt with a crown over it. If he manages to secure a fight with Fury, it won't be the first time he faces a British boxer in the ring.
In 2019, Ruiz made history when he stopped Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden to become the first Mexican heavyweight world champion. However, he later lost the rematch against Joshua that same year.
Ruiz's fighting style has always been exciting, and a potential fight with Fury would undoubtedly be a must-watch for boxing fans worldwide. While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, it will be interesting to see if this fight comes to fruition and whether Ruiz can add another world title to his name.
