TYSON FURY and Andy Ruiz Jr could be on a collision course for a blockbuster summer bout.
The Gypsy King is looking for an opponent after his mooted unification fight with Oleksandr Usyk fell through last month.

Andy Ruiz Jr wants to become heavyweight champion once again
The Ukrainian will now have to defend his belts against mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois, with Fury at a loose end.
Anthony Joshua’s former conqueror Ruiz Jr has been seeking a fight with Fury’s old rival Deontay Wilder, in what would be a title eliminator.
But a date has failed to materialise, with the Bronze Bomber instead linked with a crossover bout against former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
This could lead to Ruiz Jr skipping the queue and getting a title shot at Fury.
The Gypsy King’s US promoter Bob Arum told Cornerman Boxing of his client: “He’s been in Italy on vacation with his family.
“He’s back in England, and we’re talking to him, and we’re looking for the best available guy for him to fight this summer in the UK.
“Maybe it’ll be Andy Ruiz or somebody like that.”
Ahead of a possible meeting between the heavyweight champions past and present, SunSport compares the lavish lifestyles of the two men.

With Fury worth a reported £52million and Ruiz Jr estimated at £8m, both have more than enough in the kitty to treat themselves to a nice pad or two.
Despite his immense success in the glamorous world of heavyweight boxing, the Gypsy King hasn’t abandoned his Morecambe roots.
The 34-year-old still lives in a house worth £550k in the Lancashire town.
Fury can often be seen going for jogs with dad John around Morecambe, as he stays in shape between fights.
He also has a pad in Marbella, while he stays in Las Vegas during certain fight camps.
Ruiz Jr, on the other hand, has lived in California for most of his life.
After beating Joshua, the Mexican spent “millions” on a new Cali mansion for himself, then-wife Julie and their five kids.
The sprawling property features a luxurious pool and a spacious, modern interior – as well as room for his car collection and even a treehouse for the kids.

Fury has amassed a sensational car collection that would be the envy of virtually everybody in the world.
But it’s not all supercars and flash motors…
Yes, the Gypsy King does have TWO new Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II cars – priced at a staggering £384,000 each.
And yes, he has also been spotted out in a Ferrari GTC4Lusso worth around £250k and a £140k Porsche Taycan.
But he has also shared a snap of a £20k 2006 Vauxhall Passat on his drive.
He gushed: “This is the best car on the rd 2006 iv cleaned her right up, sparkling.”
After Ruiz Jr beat Joshua, he swiftly amassed a car collection worth £783,275.
He has driven a Rolls Royce Cullinan, also owned by Manchester City star Erling Haaland, worth around £260k alone.
While he also bought a £165k Lamborghini Urus.
Ruiz Jr then added a Mercedes G Wagon G550 worth a whopping £96,275.

Fury has a penchant for fancy clobber, and he isn’t afraid to sport a daring look.
Whether it’s a loud shirt, or the full shebang of an even louder suit, the Gypsy King is never wary to make a statement with what he wears.
Tyson favours a Claudio Lugli number, often with a message that he shows off at press conferences before a big fight.
While he also likes wearing sunglasses, they don’t always have to be super expensive…
Last year he showed his down to earth side, popping into a Cancer Research charity shop and buying a £3 pair of shades.
Ruiz Jr, on the other hand, has a less daring fashion sense – although he does enjoy wearing chains around his neck.
The former heavyweight champ favours a simple Nike T-shirt and distressed jeans look, although he is also one for a nice pair of sunglasses.

Fury possibly isn’t as flash as the likes of Conor McGregor when it comes to jewellery, but that doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy a nice timepiece.
The Gypsy King has been spotted wearing a £500k Richard Mille Rose Gold watch, as well as a Rolex.
While he has also been seen in a diamond-encrusted necklace.
As mentioned earlier, Ruiz Jr does enjoy wearing chains around his neck.
And he is especially fond of one in particular featuring his initials “AR”.
His collection has recently been depleted, however, after his ex-wife Julie recorded herself throwing out a collection of his clothes and possessions, including diamonds, after learning of his new romance.
But more about that later…

Loved-up Tyson Fury has one of the most stable relationships in showbusiness.
The 6ft 9in star has been dating other half Paris since he was just 17.
They wed in 2008, and have enjoyed a glamorous lifestyle together as Tyson’s career has gone from strength to strength.
The happy pair already have six children together, and last month confirmed that Paris is pregnant with a seventh.
While Tyson has stability in his love life, Ruiz Jr has been hit by drama this year.
Having separating from ex Julie, Ruiz Jr has reportedly moved on with social media influencer Mayeli Alonso.
He claims that he had been single for a while before beginning his “new chapter” – but that didn’t stop Julie taking the news badly.
After Ruiz Jr and Mayeli were spotted hand in hand at Mexico City International Airport, Julie recorded herself throwing her former husband’s things into the bin before posting the clip to TikTok.
As part of a lengthy statement, Ruiz Jr, who has five kids with Julie, said: “I clarify that at the time I decided to open my heart again, my previous romantic relationship had already ended.
“I want to live this new stage of my life that began recently peacefully. All human beings deserve a new opportunity to find happiness and that is exactly what I’m doing right now and I thank God for it.”
Ruiz Jr discussed his then-wife while appearing on Mike Tyson’s podcast in 2019.
When Iron Mike revealed that he used to sleep with his fans during the height of his fame, Ruiz Jr said: “My girl would f*** me up. She’ll break all my cars or something.”
