Boxing trainer Jorge Capetillo has lifted the lid on who Andy Ruiz Jr. believes will come out on top in the huge upcoming bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
The two British heavyweights will soon clash in a fight being described as one of the biggest in history, although a date and venue is still yet to be confirmed.
Capetillo has worked with both Fury and Ruiz, who famously caused a huge shock by beating Joshua in 2019 before losing the rematch six months later.
And Fury and Ruiz were brought together last weekend in Las Vegas by Capetillo for a charity initiative called Project Hope, and could be seen in deep discussion.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Capetillo revealed what the duo the talked about.
"Tyson told Andy: 'You were the first man to beat Joshua and now it will be my time too'," he said.
"Andy beat him. He knows.
"Andy truly believes Tyson will smash Joshua. I believe Fury has the bigger heart, more IQ and is the more skilful fighter."
Fury and Ruiz clearly have huge mutual respect for each other, and Capetillo went on to add: "I am so grateful for the opportunity to have them both – the best heavyweight of our era and the first-ever Mexican heavyweight champion.
"It was something from my heart. I talked to Andy first. Then Tyson arrived. I introduced them – we were on the same page with the same feelings.
"It was a really special moment. Andy was inspired by Tyson's comeback. And Tyson thinks Andy has great skills and ability.
"They spoke about their mental health, about their shared experience of being on top when everything comes easy to you. They shared experiences, knowledge and love."
