Tyson Fury’s Manager Calls Andy Ruiz Jr. A ‘Disgrace’ To Heavyweight Division!
If that is NOT enough incentive for Andy Ruiz Jr to snap back into shape, then maybe this may help. See, Tyson Fury’s Manager was NOT done RIPPING Ruiz, oh no, he also said that the Mexican heavyweight looked like an “Elephant.” Read on…
CelebNSports247.com reports that Andy Ruiz Jr has been labeled an “elephant” and a “disgrace” by Frank Warren after his failed world heavyweight title against Anthony Joshua.
Andy Ruiz Jr. has learned that they all love you when you’re on top, but when you slip, they all turn on ya!
Like we said earlier, Andy Ruiz Jr. lucked out beating Anthony Joshua back in June. Ruiz reign as world heavyweight champ lasted 6 months since Joshua regained the WBA, WBO and IBF titles with a comfortable score victory in Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
Joshua put Andy Ruiz Jr. on the one-hit-wonder list joining previous heavyweight champions Buster Douglas and Hasim Rahman.
After going down to a stunning defeat that shocked the boxing world against Ruiz in June,
Strategy & loyalty! I’m not perfect but I’m trying, another defining moment for British boxing. Thank you to all my team, a night we will remember & thank you Ruiz Jr. we made history ???? 2X pic.twitter.com/CL0emzfbUY

Ruiz weighed in for the bout at 20st 3lb and conceded afterward that he had paid the price for “three months of partying.”
Undefeated former champion Tyson Fury’s manager Frank Warren had this to say after his failed world heavyweight title defense against Anthony Joshua.
The high-profile fight angered Warren, so Frank wrote on his website:
Andy Ruiz Jr brought disgrace to himself and the sport by simply failing to prepare for any sort of required level. Just because you are a heavyweight it shouldn’t mean you don’t have an obligation to display a certain degree of athletic intention.
Yes, he was heavy last time around and usually wobbles a bit around the middle, but this was ridiculous. When eyebrows were being raised at the weigh-in he literally was the elephant in the room. Joshua must have wondered which chin he was supposed to aim for. It is a bit late after the event to come out and say you partied too much and regret carrying so much weight.
Frank Warren – “Professional athletes have a responsibility to ensure a level playing field!”
He went on to say:
Spare a thought for those punters who might have had a punt on the champion, who had every right to believe he had put the graft in having had the benefit of a full camp.
Professional athletes have a responsibility to ensure a level playing field on behalf of those who pay for the privilege of watching. What we ended up with was a fella who basically scoffed himself out being world champion and a spectacle that suffered as a result. The fault for this lies firmly with Ruiz.
The bottom line from what we saw over in Saudi is that Ruiz was a disgrace to the belts he was defending. He did a Buster Douglas and ate himself out of contention.
Frank Warren: – If his dream was to win the titles then stuff himself stupid and lose, then his dream has become a reality.
I saw an interview before the fight with Ruiz saying he had achieved his dream. Well, if his dream was to win the titles then stuff himself stupid and lose them for the first time of asking, then his dream has become a reality.
King of the heavyweight division to Burger King in the space of six months.
Fury is due to face WBC champion Deontay Wilder in February. You won’t see anyone coming into that fight slipping, overeating or giving a poor excuse saying they partied too much.
