Ahead of his return to the ring Andy Ruiz Jr sat down with PBC (Premier Boxing Champions) on FOX to discuss who his top five current heavyweights are. Ruiz Jr. stunned the boxing world when he knocked out Anthony Joshua in June 2019 to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO belts for himself. He will now face Chris Arreola on May 1, 2021.

Chris Arreola

“He’s a Mexican heavyweight fighter, just like me. He don’t give up. Me and him are bangers and we like to give the crowd what they want.”

Deontay Wilder

“He has a great right hand, he’s tall, he’s a dramatic knockout artist.”

Andy Ruiz Jr.

“I know what I’m capable of and I know what I’m gonna do to become a second-time champion of the world.”

Anthony Joshua

“Me and him have unfinished business that we need to handle. I won one, he won one, so we’re just waiting for the trilogy.”

Tyson Fury

“He’s a man of God and he’s a Christian like me. We don’t give up.”
