Another said: “Fairplay Andy looking in the best shape he’s been I definitely consider him top 5 behind Fury, Usyk, Joshua, Wilder.”

One added: “Scary speed.”

Another added: “An in shape, focused Andy Ruiz Jr is going to be very problematic for any heavyweight out right now.

“He is deceptively quick, strong chinned, good fundamentally, and rhythmic in letting his hands go. Should be interesting.”

Meanwhile Ortiz, 43, beat Charles Martin, 36, in six rounds at the start of the year.
