Ahead of the rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz jr, Tyson Fury has warned the British boxer against losing muscle and changing his style during the match.
Joshua who was defeated at Madison Square Garden in June has the chance to win back his titles as he faces Ruiz in Saudi Arabia on December 7.
The Nigerian born boxer stated that he will expose and defeat Ruiz in a rematch. Fury charged the British-Nigerian boxer not to try to work on a new fighting style to beat Ruiz.
“I see he’s lost a bit of weight, he’s been taking notice of people saying he’s got too muscle on him,” Fury told BT Sport.
“But really that can be taken out of context as well. ‘You can’t change a bull into a racehorse. It doesn’t work like that. ‘A racehorse can’t tow a wagon or a heavy load. Doesn’t work.”
“So if you take that big heavy horse, strip his muscle off, and then put him in the same cart he was in trying to pull that heavy load again he’s not going to manage it.”
“So I think they are going to try to lose weight and try to move a lot. But you can’t do that in one camp, that takes a lifetime practice.”
“We saw Tony Bellew try to do it against [Oleksandr] Usyk, tried copying my style but after eight rounds his legs went. It works, it’s effective, I’ve been successful 29 times in a row with it. You can’t learn it overnight.”
