Andy Ruiz Jr furious with Tyson Fury for wearing Mexican wrestling mask and headband at public workout ahead of Otto Wallin fight – The Sun

ANDY RUIZ JR has slammed Tyson Fury for trying to represent Mexico with a public workout dressing up stunt.

Fury took part in a public session in Las Vegas last night ahead of this weekend's fight with Otto Wallin – and decided the time was right to make a dig at Ruiz Jr.


The 30-year-old became Mexico's first ever world heavyweight champion when he stopped Anthony Joshua in June and is proud of his national heritage.

And Ruiz Jr was left fuming when he saw British star Fury donning a Mexican headband and wrestling mask in an attempt to promote his fight with Wallin on Saturday.

It left the champion, who defends his WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO belts against Joshua in December, insisting Fury would be his next victim for his attempt to mock the Mexican way.

Ruiz Jr said: “Tyson Fury’s next.

"Tyson Fury’s talking s***, he’s representing Mexico – he’s not even Mexican, what kind of s*** is that?

“A British f******, he ain’t even Mexican, wearing the f****** Mexican flag, messed up man.

“Stay in your lane, represent your country, Tyson Fury represent your country, represent what you represent.

“He just needs to stay in his lane – represent where he’s from, shouldn’t be representing another country that he’s not even a little close of."

Fury has a history of stunts in the build up to his fights, including rolling around the floor dressed as batman ahead of his clash with Wladimir Klitschko which saw him win the world title.

In his last fight against Tom Schwarz, he even donned an American top-hat, dressing gown and shorts in a tribute to the Rocky IV character Apollo Creed.

The 31-year-old is attempting to build up interest in his clash with little-known Swede Wallin – a fight criticised by Eddie Hearn who says hardly anyone will turn up to watch.
