I'll Fight Andy Ruiz If He Beats Anthony Joshua In Rematch – Tyson Fury


Tyson Fury on Friday said he is willing to put a blockbuster fight with Anthony Joshua to one side, if the former heavyweight champion is unable to regain his belts in a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.


Sky Sports reports that Fury is hoping to make light work of Otto Wallin on Saturday and pave the way for his own world heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder. He is, however, thinking beyond that and considering a potential unification bout.

After suffering his first professional defeat at the hands of Ruiz Jr in June, Joshua is confident of getting revenge when the pair meet in Saudi Arabia on December 7, but Fury is prepared to face either fighter.

In an exclusive interview with Sky, Fury said

"If he (Anthony Joshua) goes in there and gets knocked back out by Ruiz, then fair play to Ruiz. Who cares anyway? You know, I'll just fight Ruiz, doesn't matter. One hundred percent.

"I'm not concerned because whatever happens in life happens and we can't change it anyway. So, with every negative, there's a positive."

Speaking about this weekend's opponent Wallin, Fury added: "It's a different challenge, different opponent, different style and styles do make fights.

"This guy's 6'6'', left-handed southpaw. It's probably going to be a different challenge. Every fight is different, not one fight, all fights, is the same.

"So, we approach every fight (with a) different game plan, but when we're in there for the first minute or so, I'll know exactly what to do with Otto Wallin."
