Tyson Fury happy to fight Anthony Joshua-Andy Ruiz Jr winner
Tyson Fury says he’s willing to set a blockbuster battle with Anthony Joshua to one side, if the former heavyweight champion is not able to recover his straps at a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr..
Pave the way for his world heavyweight rematch with Deontay Wilder and fury is currently hoping to make light work of Otto Wallin on Saturday, but is already thinking past that to a possible unification bout.
After enduring his first defeat at the hands of Ruiz Jr in June, Joshua is confident of getting revenge once the pair meet in Saudi Arabia on December 7, now live on Sky Sports Box Office, but Fury is ready to confront either fighter.
“If he (Anthony Joshua) goes in there and has hauled back outside by Ruiz, then fair play to Ruiz. Who cares anyhow? You understand, I will only fight Ruiz, does not matter. One hundred per cent.
“I am not worried because whatever happens in life happens and we can not change it anyway. Thus, with each negative, there’s a positive.”
Speaking about the weekend’s rival Wallin, Fury included:”It’s a different challenge, different opponent, different style and fashions do create struggles.
“This man’s 6’6”, left-handed southpaw. It’s probably going to be a challenge that is different. Every fight is different, not 1 fight, all struggles, is exactly the same.
“So, we approach every struggle (using a) different game plan, but when we’re in there for the first minute or so, I’ll know just what to do with Otto Wallin.”
Wallin is seeking to Ruiz for inspiration and will be currently really still hoping to spring a surprise outcome.
“Just examine the other conflicts such as Andy Ruiz-Joshua. Mike Tyson, he was not supposed to have beat. He got defeat from Buster Douglas.
“We experienced a guy, Ingemar Johansson, sixty years ago he came to New York and beat Floyd Patterson. He was a huge underdog and he beat him. It may occur at any moment. So tune in and do not blink.”
