Boxing: Andy Ruiz takes aim at Tyson Fury after brutal heavyweight win

World heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr has taken aim at Tyson Fury, after the Brit's brutal heavyweight win over Otto Wallin on Sunday (NZ time). 

Fury was expected to cruise to victory against his Swedish opponent, but was forced to battle through a horrific cut above his right eye and a relentless Wallin to remain unbeaten in the ring. 

The cut was so bad, he was rushed to a local hospital where he had 40 stitches. 

But Fury was uninspiring in the win, despite the unanimous decision, which the judges scored 116-112, 117-111 and 118-110 in his favour. 

Before the bout, Fury said he could beat Ruiz with "one hand", so Ruiz watched with interest, before taking a verbal jab of his own. 

He tweeted: "After that performance, there's no way he beats me with a hand tied behind his back."

Ruiz is currently preparing for a rematch with Anthony Joshua in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on December 8. 

In June, Ruiz stunned Joshua to claim the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight belts.

Kiwi heavyweight Joseph Parker was with Fury in the lead-up to the bout, with cameras showing the pair dancing together, before coming together for a prayer. 

Parker is in Vegas preparing for next month's bout against Dereck Chisora at the 02 Arena on October 27.  

Meanwhile, Fury is pencilled in for a highly anticipated rematch against Amerian Deontay Wilder for the WBC belt on February 23. 

But Fury's promoter Frank Warren fears the fight will now be postponed, due to the cut above Fury's eye. 

Fury and Wilder squared off in December in one of the best heavyweight fights in recent memory, which ended in a draw.
