Tyson Fury ‘Enraged’ Top Name In Las Vegas

Add Andy Ruiz Jr. (34-2, 22 KOs) to the growing list of fighters willing to step in and fight Deontay Wilder (44-1-1, 41 KOs).



As noted, after more than ten members of his team reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and/or the new Delta strain, Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) will not be able to make the intended July 24 fight date in Las Vegas, Nevada for a court-ordered trilogy bout against the aforementioned “Bronze Bomber.”

While Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) has already offered his services, Ruiz Jr. recently did the same while speaking with Fino Boxing (see below) for an on-location interview over the weekend.

During the discussion, Ruiz Jr. spoke about his desire to stay busy following his hard-earned victory over Chris Arreola (38-7-1, 33 KOs) back in May, and noted the previously mentioned Whyte and even former two-time Wilder opponent Luis Ortiz (32-2, 27 KOs) as potential opponents in addition to offering his services for “The Bronze Bomber” himself.

One thing is for certain, anyone but Fury standing in the squared circle with Wilder on any date other than July 24 is something that isn’t making MGM executives happy.

It was recently noted via Las Vegas Locally that MGM execs are “enraged” over the Fury-Wilder III postponement.

“MGM executives are enraged that Fury-Wilder 3 will have to be pushed back to the fall,” stated the report. “They were depending on it to provide a big revenue boost as convention business and international visits continue to lag.”
