Tyson Fury is not the biggest fan of the heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-1, 22 KOs) .
Fury thinks he is not better than Dereck Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs), even saying that he’s in the same talent class as him.
“It’s an awkward style, but it’s tailor-made for me,” said Fury to TG2 when asked if he can beat Ruiz. “He’s 6’2”, squat, leaning forward. That style is easy for me. I think that’s the Chisora style. Is he any better than Dereck Chisora on a good night? I don’t think so. And I handled that quite easily, and closed my eyes actually. I had one hand behind my back.”
🗣 Tyson Fury when asked if he was impressed on Wilder's victory over Luis Ortiz:
"Definitely not, it was terrible. He lost every round to a 50-year-old man and then KO'd him when he slowed down."

“That style is easy for me to just jab and move. Wladimir Klitschko would make easy work of Ruiz, because that style for him is easy. That style, he’s fought loads of them. I’ve fought loads of them in my career. The average heavyweight is 6’1-2-3, but it’s the ones that are awkward, and gangly or a different style that people struggle with. The conventional styles are always easy to beat,” said Fury.
