That would fire Ruiz back into title contention after his devastating rematch loss to Anthony Joshua in 2019 – which saw the Brit reclaim his belts.

Ruiz told EsNEWS back in February: “I definitely want the winner of the fight. A lot of people wish it would have been Fury and me.

“But you know, I think that Whyte deserves his shot, so we are going to see what happens.

“I think it’s going to be a hell of a fight.”

Ruiz has also been called out by Derek Chisora.

Ruiz Jr tweeted: “Who should I fight next? Let me see in the comments.”

This prompted a response from Chisora, who replied: “Want to come to London?”
