    I JUST WANT A SHOT

    Andy Ruiz Jr says he wants to fight Tyson Fury next and has laid down the gauntlet, before a tequila-fuelled session.

    Ruiz said on PBC on Fox: “I think Tyson Fury did what he had to do, he stuck to the game-plan.

    “I’m pretty sure he could do it again and I could do it too so, if they pick me, I’m here and I’m ready.

    “His legs were weak, they were wobbly, even other punches that he tried to throw, they didn’t have a lot of power so I think Tyson Fury did an awesome job.

    “I was really shocked because I thought Deontay Wilder was going to win.

    “I just want a shot with Tyson Fury as well.”

    PPV SUCCESS

    IN THE RED CORNER

    Frank Warren wants Old Trafford to host Tyson Fury's rematch with Deontay Wilder.

    The boxing promoter said: “He deserves the chance to fight as a WBC world champion in front of his home fans.

    “I’d love to do it in Manchester at Old Trafford. That’s always been a dream of Tyson’s.

    “Directly after the fight Tyson said he’d love to do the unification fight with Anthony Joshua.

    “That’s his next target. He wants to unify the belts, but he’s prepared and happy to fight Wilder again.”

    MUST DO BETTER

    Tyson Fury is adamant he can perform BETTER than he did against Deontay Wilder.

    He said: “I'm my own worst critic and even though it was a fantastic performance and I got a great win, I know I can do better.

    “I've only just started with my new trainer, SugarHill Steward.

    “We only had seven weeks to perfect a Kronk Gym style. But I'm a quick learner and I aim to get back to the gym straightaway, to work on balance and straight punches.

    “I'm going to be putting people to sleep left, right and centre. Don't forget when I came here people said I can't punch. Wilder himself said I've got 'pillow fists' in the past.

    “Well it didn't do badly for an old fat guy who can't punch, did I?”
