Tyson Fury has backed Anthony Joshua to beat Andy Ruiz Jr so they can have an all-British fight.

The Gypsy King wrestles Braun Strowman in the WWE and waits for Deontay Wilder to defend his WBC crown against Luis Ortiz on November 23.

Fury said: “They have both lost quite a bit of weight and I think it will be a fantastic fight, the first one was although it did not go the way everyone was expecting. These big upset-rematches are always great to watch.

“I hope he gets his belts back because it makes a massive fight between me and him. But if he doesn’t then I will just have to go and beat up Andy Ruiz Jr.

“If Deontay loses in November against Luis Ortiz, I would take the winner of AJ vs Ruiz Jr in February or March.”
