‘After that performance there’s no way he beats me’: Andy Ruiz Jr takes a swipe at Tyson Fury after the Brit’s dogged victory against Otto Wallin
- Tyson Fury beat Otto Wallin in Las Vegas with a unanimous points decision
- But the unbeaten Brit sustained a nasty cut which put record in jeopardy
- Ruiz, who fights Anthony Joshua in December, was far from impressed with Fury
Ruiz, who fights Anthony Joshua in a Saudi Arabian rematch in December, was seemingly unimpressed by Fury’s unanimous points victory.
Posting a tweet straight after the fight, Ruiz said ‘after that performance there’s no way he beats me with a hand tied behind his back.’
Fury fought with a deep cut above his right eye for nine rounds but won comfortably on points
Andy Ruiz Jr stunned the boxing world when he knocked out Anthony Joshua in New York
It was a tough evening in Vegas for Fury, who was a heavy favourite with the bookies before the fight.
However, a cut above the right eye sustained in the third round resulted in a hectic bout, and numerous medical check ups by doctors ringside.
Nonetheless, despite blood gushing out, Fury overcame a fatigued opponent, and won as all three judges scored in his favour.
It was a unanimous victory, with totals of 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110.
But Ruiz, whose victory in June against Joshua was one of the all-time heavyweight shocks, clearly backs himself against Fury, particularly after witnessing what was a strenuous evening for the linear heavyweight champion.
