It was a stunning upset on the final show of Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Fight Camp in his back garden.

Whyte immediately requested a rematch, which is likely to happen in November or December.

And he is already working towards gaining revenge against the Russian.

Matchroom shared a clip of the Body Snatcher working on the bag as he waits for his day of destiny to be confirmed.

The 32-year-old recently hit out at criticism he received from boxers, boxing experts and Twitter trolls after the shock loss.

One name he dropped was former heavyweight world champ Ruiz Jr.

And his newly-acquired trainer Dave Coldwell launched an impassioned defence of the Brixton brawler, saying he has “bigger b***s” than the trolls.

But Ruiz Jr, who stunned Anthony Joshua to win the WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight belts back in June 2019 before losing the rematch six months later, has slammed Whyte’s reaction.

The two have previous beef, with Whyte scoffing at Ruiz Jr’s boxing skills and battle with his weight.

Posting on Twitter, Ruiz wrote: “Stop playing the “victim” card bro.”

But Whyte pulled no punches with his response, saying: “Andy Ruiz is glad that he don’t have to fight me.

“He’s glad the only battle he’s got now is just with diabetes.

“I’m not on him anymore, he’s glad. Diabetes he can overcome, but he can’t overcome me.”
