The Mexican star has been looking to regather momentum in his heavyweight career since losing his rematch to Anthony Joshua in 2019. Ruiz Jr outpointed Chris Arreola in a lacklustre display last year, and is now looking to take another step back to the top when he faces Luis Ortiz this September.

Earlier this week, Fury laid the blame squarely at Joshua’s feet, insisting that the current world heavyweight did not want to risk losing his belts.
Joshua suffered a devastating defeat by the American back in 2019, when he was floored four times before eventually being defeated in the seventh round.
Fury took to social media on Sunday evening to declare that the heavyweight unification bout with his British rival will take place on August 14 in Saudi Arabia.
Joshua and Fury are set to meet in the ring with the undisputed heavyweight championship on the line this summer after signing contracts for the £200million mega-fight.
According to the newspaper, Joshua’s recently filed accounts show the Londoner has over £100 million, most of which was earned in his two fights with Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019-2020, which saw the 31-year-old Joshua lose and then regain the four titles.
The Mirror revealed that between March 2019 and March 2020, Joshua made several investments, including three houses in Watford.
Joshua was sensationally stopped by the unknown Andy Ruiz Jr. in June 2019, with the Briton falling to the first defeat of his professional career in the seventh round.
