Andy Ruiz Jr has backed his former opponent Anthony Joshua to beat Tyson Fury later this year. Joshua is set for a huge heavyweight clash with Fury, having reached an agreement to face his domestic rival twice in 2021.
“Fury has a really weird style,” the Mexican-American told the Daily Mail. “I feel if Joshua doesn’t box around – like he did to me – and goes forward, throws his combinations, I think Anthony will pull out the victory.”
Ruiz beat Joshua in New York in their first fight, but Joshua fought back his free heavyweight belts in December 2019. The Mexican is set to make his long-awaited return to the ring against Chris Arreola on May 1.
