Dillian Whyte BLASTS Andy Ruiz Jr's comeback against Chris Arreola as 'joke fight from fake Mexican'

DILLIAN WHYTE believes Andy Ruiz Jr has taken a 'garbage fight' in his comeback against Chris Arreola as he blasted the former heavyweight world champion.

The Mexican-American faces the Nightmare on May 1 in what will be his first outing since losing his rematch against Anthony Joshua in December 2019.


And Ruiz Jr is looking in great shape for the dust-up after shedding two stone since linking up with new trainer Eddy Reynoso.

Should he emerge victorious, he could face Whyte at the end of the year, with Eddie Hearn revealing to SunSport that a fight could materialise.

The Body Snatcher is confident Ruiz Jr will secure a knockout win as he criticised the level of boxer he is competing against.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Whyte said: "A strategic comeback fight. It's a fight that's going to make him look good.

"Make him look like, 'Oh yeah, he's this and he's that,' but on paper it's not.

"If you run it on paper, it's not, because Chris Arreola is shot. Chris Arreola has been shot for a few years.

"If he was fighting Chris Arreola a few years ago, people would be like, 'No, that's a garbage fight.' Now it's the same, if not worse.

"He was a decent fighter in his heyday but he's been retired for two years since losing to Adam Kownacki.

"It's a good strategic move from his team, him coming back and he'll bash Arreola. 'Andy Ruiz, yeah he's back, and he's motivated, and he looked so good.'

"Let's be honest, it's Chris Arreola he's fighting. Typical joke fight from the fake Mexican."

Whyte forced himself back into world title contention in March when he knocked out Alexander Povetkin in his must-win rematch.

Commenting on what the future holds for Whyte, Matchroom promoter Hearn claimed that the 33-year-old could fight in American next.

He told SunSport: "I feel like he needs to go and enjoy himself and by doing that, go to the US and raise his profile in a good fight in New York in the summer or something like that, that's what we're looking at. 

"I think realistically the bigger fight with Dillian is going to come at the end of the year. Whether that is Ruiz or Wilder."
