Former world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. openly said that in a potential match between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua he gives preference to the current WBC champion. Ruiz thinks Fury is the favorite in that match and that he should win.
It looks like Fury is the type of fighter who doesn't suit Joshua and that Fury will try to take advantage of that. On the other hand, Joshua is a phenomenal fighter and he is certainly aware of the advantages of Fury and his disadvantages.
He will focus on certain aspects of the fight.
Ruiz on their fight
"I think it's going to be an interesting fight. I fought with Joshua, but I didn't fight with Fury. He has an unusual style, but I see Tyson as the winner of that match.
I wasn't really impressed with Joshua's performance in the last fight (vs. Kubrat Pulev), but he still managed to do his job, "Ruiz predicted in an interview with the YouTube channel Little Giant Boxing, adding: "Maybe Fury beats him, a lot will depend on how weird he moves, if he's boxing ...
Anthony hasn't fought someone who boxes with so much movement yet. We'll see what happens." We haven’t watched Ruiz in action since he lost the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles he won six months earlier in a rematch with Joshua in December 2019.
Since that defeat, Andy has taken the job seriously and announced that we will be watching him in another release soon. Namely, Ruiz should return to the ring this April, and Chris Arreola is mentioned as his most likely opponent It is certain that Ruiz wasn't happy after he was defeated by Joshua, but he should be happy with the fact that he managed to defeat Joshua before that and that he showed how good a boxer he is and how much he can do.
Still, Ruiz seems to be preparing something new for us. He seems to have been training hard and taking advantage of the pandemic by training hard. We can expect a great fight from him as always, and it will be interesting to find out what the outcome will be.
"When they see me in April, everything will change. Everyone will see my dramatic change," Destroyer said. April is coming soon and we are about to see what Ruiz will change and what we will actually watch
