Tyson Fury called out by Andy Ruiz Jr after Oleksandr Usyk fight collapse
TYSON FURY has been called out by Andy Ruiz Jr after the former’s megafight against Oleksandr Usyk collapsed.
Usyk’s agent Egis Klimas confirmed that the proposed undisputed clash is off and blamed it all on Fury’s camp.
Boxing fans were counting down the days until April 29 when it appeared the two heavyweights had managed to strike an agreement.
But it appears the bout will not go ahead after the duo failed to agree terms over the purse.
According to Klimas, the Gypsy King kept making more demands which made reaching a compromise impossible – including a no rematch clause.
This comes after Usyk publicly accepted his rival’s “greedy” offer of just a 70/30 split to unify all four belts at Wembley.
That means Fury is available again and Ruiz jumped at the opportunity to face the undefeated superstar.
The Mexican-American, who ended Anthony Joshua’s undefeated run in 2019, challenged The Gypsy King on Instagram with a graphic showing them in the ring with their respective flags and a cross.
Ruiz issued the following caption: “Lets [sic] do this!”
This comes after promoter Eddie Hearn suggested a four-man tournament consisting of three mega fights.

Hearn suggested a fight between Fury and Joshua, if he gets past Jermaine Franklin, as well as Deontay Wilder and Usyk with the respective winners facing off for the undisputed title.
That is despite the fact Fury and Usyk have beaten Wilder and Joshua twice respectively.
Wilder has thrown his name into the hat as the undefeated Ukrainian’s next opponent.
But Usyk seems set to face mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois, per the WBA’s request.
