Andy Ruiz Jr. was also asked about last Saturday’s Deontay Wilder – Tyson Fury rematch. The former IBO / IBF / WBO / WBA Super Champion Ruiz was impressed by Fury’s performance against Wilder. Ruiz said Fury was very good, using his abilities and his long reach. This fight reminded him a little of his first fight with Joshua. Wilder was down to the floor at same round (3th round), like Joshua and the fight finished in the same round (7th round).
He said Fury had done his utmost to stick to his gameplan. He’s sure he can do it again (I think he’s thinking about the third fight against Wilder), “He’s the man right now.” – said Ruiz. The Mexican says if Fury would fight with him, he is here and he is ready.
He was very surprised that Wilder had lost, he thought he would win. He also noticed that something was wrong with Wilder’s legs. He felt weak and unsteady, and his punches had no real power, especially after his ear hit. And Fury made good use of his height and weight superiority and did a good job.
