‘Fight date soon’ – Andy Ruiz Jr set to announce ring return in coming weeks as he targets Tyson Fury showdown

ANDY RUIZ JR announced he will be returning to the ring this year after calling Tyson Fury out.

Ruiz Jr, who famously ended British star Anthony Joshua’s undefeated streak in 2019, hasn’t fought since May 1 when he beat Chris Arreola in California.

And the Destroyer confirmed it is only a matter of time until he wears his boxing gloves again as his next fight is “coming soon”.

Ruiz Jr tweeted: “Happy new year, excited to get back in the ring this year. Fight date coming soon.”

This comes after Fury’s US-based promoter Bob Arum recently confirmed that the Mexican-American could be his client’s next opponent.

Arum claims the 32-year-old and Robert Helenius are two the “principal” options for the Gypsy King.

He recently said: “Frank Warren and I are looking for another opponent to do Fury‘s fight in Manchester or in Las Vegas, depending on who the opponent is.

“So we’re looking at Andy Ruiz as a possibility, he’s available.

“This big Finnish kid, who looked very good on the semi-wind up on the Fury – Wilder card, Helenius, big, big Finnish kid, who can really fight.

“Those are the two principal guys. I guess if it’s Helenius we do it in the UK and if it was Ruiz, we do the fight in Las Vegas.”

Posting a grab of Arum’s quotes on Instagram, Ruiz Jr said: “Let’s go I need that WBC.”

The former unified heavyweight champion then shared a snap of him alongside Fury, before urging Arum’s promotion to sort out the fight.

Ruiz Jr added: “Top Rank let’s go.”
