Andy Ruiz Jr was quick to mock Tyson Fury’s win over Otto Wallin after the British heavyweight had suggested he would easily overcome the Mexican world champion.
Fury had to overcome a horrific cut and appeared to be hurt in the final round of his unanimous decision victory over Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Ruiz Jr watched with interest after recent critical comments from Fury and swiftly took to social media to deliver his own scathing verdict.
He tweeted: “After that performance there’s no way he beats me with a hand tied behind his back.”
The Californian has returned from a three-city media tour ahead of his rematch with Anthony Joshua in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“I will let the fans decide, which hand I put behind my back and beat Ruiz with the other hand – because I only need one hand for him,” said Fury earlier in the week.
