Deontay Wilder urges Andy Ruiz Jr. to get back into shape and claims that Mexican motivation has been lost
“Andy, if you listen, you get a ** back at the gym”: Deontay Wilder urges Andy Ruiz Jr to get back into shape and claims that Mexican motivation has been lost after the loss of Anthony Joshua
Deontay Wilder has urged Andy Ruiz Jr. to stop investing in his lush lifestyle that arose from his two fights with Anthony Joshua and return to the gym.
Wilder is preparing for Tyson Fury for their mega fight in Las Vegas, more than a year after their first fight that ended controversially in a draw, but that didn’t stop him from thinking further than the long-awaited rematch.
And the heavyweight champion of the WBC maintains that Ruiz can be a future opponent for him to defend his title against, but admits that he will only consider fighting him when he is back in shape.

“Will I ever give Andy Ruiz a chance?” If I finally have no opponents anymore, and we need someone to beat up, “Wilder said on social media.
“As long as Andy Ruiz stays in shape and comes back to reality because I think he lost some kind of hunger for the sport or whatever after the Joshua fight,” Wilder continued.
‘*** that money is running out, man. I’m not going to tell a grown man what to do with his money, but if you are going to spend it, invest it in something.
And Wilder told him to stop spending the money he earned with the two Joshua fights
“Good, on real estate or whatever. Invest it and then come back, man. “
Ruiz Jr. is believed to have earned £ 5 million from his first win over Joshua in June last year, before reportedly earning £ 10 million for the rematch.
And Wilder claims that it is the lucrative nature of these deals for Ruiz that he has lost his way.

“If you come out of nowhere and you get millions, then you start doing things you could never do in your life,” Wilder said of Ruiz.
“I think that took him away from the structure and devoted himself to boxing. So hopefully he comes back, and I hope he doesn’t come back when the money runs out.
“Think about it, small numbers add up to large numbers, and that’s what brings people.”
