Tyson Fury hints he could fight Andy Ruiz Jr after former heavyweight champion calls out Gypsy King

TYSON FURY has teased Anthony Ruiz Jr as his next opponent after being called out by the former heavyweight champion.

Boxing fans from all over the globe were tuned in to witness Fury's sixth-round demolition of Dillian Whyte at Wembley.




Fury's brutal uppercut put an end to Whyte's hopes of stealing the WBC title from the Gypsy King.

And now, Ruiz Jr, 32, is the latest challenger who wants a pop at Fury.

Before his win could even sink in, the Mexican took to Instagram to call out Fury.

Ruiz Jr wrote, alongside a pic standing with Fury: "I hope 1 day I can have the chance to share the ring with you, three countries will be watching.

"That will be my wish," accompanied by praying hands, boxing gloves, and angel face emojis.

And Fury, 33, teased the possibility of the fight happening by sharing Ruiz Jr's request on his Instagram story.

Ruiz Jr will fancy his chances against Fury after his shock win over the Gypsy King's British counterpart Anthony Joshua in 2019.

However, Fury's retirement announcement following his victory over Whyte could mean he's just toying with Ruiz Jr.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Fury is in line for a £100million payday if he returns to the ring.

Fury's wife Paris also appeared to rubbish claims that he would be retiring by mouthing 'no chance' as he made the declaration.

Fury's boxing promoter, Bob Arum, was quick to rule out WBC heavyweight champion's retirement too.

The Top Rank boss told USA Today: “No, he definitely won’t retire. Of course not. Are you crazy?”

If Fury opts to continue fighting, he's also been tipped for an epic clash against Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua and Usyk are set for a rematch in the coming months after the Ukrainian was given the green light by his country's sports minister to go ahead with the bout.

It's been suggested that the fight will take place on July 23, but the date is yet to be confirmed.
