Andy Ruiz Jr reveals Tyson Fury fight wish and plans for life after boxing | Boxing | Sport

Andy Ruiz will take on Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia in December in a rematch of their June 1 fight.

The Mexican shocked the boxing world by knocking out Joshua in New York.

Ruiz stripped the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles away from the Brit, but will rematch him in December.

However, the 30-year-old has already set his sights on a potential fight against Tyson Fury, should he com through against Joshua unscathed.

The Mexican appeared on Mike Tyson’s ‘HotBoxin’ podcast on Monday night and discussed his plans for life after boxing.

Surprisingly, he revealed that he plans on ditching boxing for construction at some point in the future, after he has defended the belts.

“I know I became the heavyweight champion of the world and I want to defend it a lot of times,” he said.

“I want to fight Tyson Fury.

“In life after boxing – my Dad’s a contractor, so I want to get involved in that.

“I want to get involved in construction and build a lot of houses in my home town.”

Ruiz also issued a light-hearted update on his training camp for the rematch against Joshua.

The champion revealed that he will be back in camp in Mexico shortly.

“Training camp starts next week,” he continued.

“It’s hard, especially when you have a lot of kids.

“I’ve got to be away from them and away from my wife.

“I dunno, it’s hard, man.”
