The Mexican-American boxer, 30, tipped the scales at a staggering 20st 3lbs for his loss against Anthony Joshua in December.

Ruiz tipped the scales at 20st 3lbs for his December defeat against Joshua

Despite reports in the build up to the Clash on the Dunes stating he’d lost weight, Ruiz had actually gained 15lbs from his June win over AJ in New York.

He would go on to lose in an absolute masterclass from British ace Joshua – who himself has massively bulked up for his upcoming fight with Kubrat Pulev.

But Ruiz showed off a more slender frame in his most-recent training video on Instagram.

The Snickers-loving star captioned the clip of himself working on his abs: “One of my favourite core workouts.”

And fans were quick to comment on the weight loss.

One said: “Look about 4-5 stone lighter!”

Another replied: “Dang, you looking slimmer. Keep up the good work, bro.”

A third joked: “Think you should go down to cruiserweight you will dominate.”

Ruiz currently has no fight lined-up – but he admitted he’d love to “shut up” Dillian Whyte.

The pair were embroiled in a war of words online earlier this year after Whyte claimed Ruiz rejected a £4million offer to face him.

Ruiz, who has switched trainers after linking up with Canelo Alvarez’s coach Eddy Reynoso, has not forgotten about the rivalry, and insisted he does want to fight Whyte.

He told eSNEWS. “I’d like to fight Dillian Whyte, and I’d like to shut him up.

“That would be an amazing fight in the United States or over there.

“I know I can win. I feel like I can win against Everybody, but it’s just up to me.”

As well as a fight with Whyte, Ruiz wants to settle the score with Joshua in the third fight of their trilogy.

The Mexican-American ace also wants to squeeze in a mega-fight with either WBC champion Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

Ruiz continued: “I’d like to fight the rematch again, the third fight with Anthony Joshua, and either between Wilder and Tyson Fury.

“Nobody thought I’d be champion of the world with the way I looked. I want to get back at it and be the man I’m supposed to be.

“And I don’t have a fight date yet, but I’m for sure going to fight this year.

“I just want to be in shape and show everybody… this little chubby boy is going to look good.”
