World heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. didn’t react well to the news Dillian Whyte is facing trouble over the failed drugs test, posted World Boxing News.
Addressing the situation, Ruiz snapped:
“I’m not going to the UK for the rematch! At the end of the day, I just want a fair playing ground. The fact that Rivas had no idea about it is a bit sketchy. I will and want to fight AJ next – no ifs or maybes about that.”
A short time later, Ruiz retracted what seemed a final statement on the matter, by saying:
“I love everyone’s passion for boxing on twitter. I appreciate the people who can argue without insulting those are the people I will always reply to. It’s all love. Whether the fight happens in the UK or the USA it will be another epic fight.”
Madison Square Garden remains the favorite to host Ruiz v Joshua II over Cardiff in the UK.
