Bob Arum says the fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will get four million views

Tyson Fury is open to fighting Andy Ruiz Jr next if he triumphs once again over Anthony Joshua in their rematch.

Fury has long since been discussed in regard to a British super fight against AJ before his stunning loss to Ruiz Jr in June.

And with a comfortable night expected against Otto Wallin on Saturday, Fury is now open to facing the winner of the rematch in Saudi Arabia despite plans in place to have his own rematch against Deontay Wilder.

“If he (Anthony Joshua) goes in there and gets knocked back out by Ruiz, then fair play to Ruiz. Who cares anyway? You know, I’ll just fight Ruiz, doesn’t matter. One hundred per cent,” Fury remarked.

“I’m not concerned because whatever happens in life happens and we can’t change it anyway. So, with every negative, there’s a positive.”

While Fury is expected to coast past Wallin, the ‘Gypsy King’ is not underestimating his opponent.

”It’s a different challenge, different opponent, different style and styles do make fights,” Fury added.

“This guy’s 6’6’’, left-handed southpaw. It’s probably going to be a different challenge. Every fight is different, not one fight, all fights, is the same.

“So, we approach every fight (with a) different game plan, but when we’re in there for the first minute or so, I’ll know exactly what to do with Otto Wallin.”
