Tyson Fury out until March, considers Andy Ruiz Jr. offer

Phil Jay 30/11/2013

Peter Fury has informed WBN that Tyson Fury will be out of action until at least March following a year of frustration for the big heavyweight since his April US debut win over Steve Cunningham.

The 25 year-old has endured two cancellations for a huge domestic clash with David Haye and plans to take a further break from the ring by clearing his diary until the spring.

“Tyson has talked about wanting to mix it up with American heavyweight Deontay Wilder but he won’t be back until the end of March,” Fury told World Boxing News on Saturday.

Undefeated Fury has been flooded with interest since the disintegration of the Haye pay-per-view fight and Peter intends to sift through them once the two return to action following a planned vacation.

“There’s been plenty of other offers for Tyson to consider, with Andy Ruiz Jr. one of them,” revealed Fury.

Ruiz Jr. is Top Rank’s latest heavyweight prospect and recently stopped ex-Prizefighter winner Tor Hamer in Macau, China on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao v Brandon Rios.

At 24 and with an identical record to Fury of 21 wins and 15 stoppages, Ruiz Jr. would make for an intriguing contest as both fighter’s make their way towards a possible world title chance in 2014.
