In Fury’s most recent fight, the Briton retained the WBC title with a late knockout of compatriot Derek Chisora, taking Fury to 3-0 against the 39-year-old.

While Fury has suggested that Ruiz Jr’s monetary demands have scuppered that potential bout, the prospect of Fury vs Zhang fell through when Joe Joyce activated a rematch clause last week to box the Chinese fighter again. Zhang, 40, beat the Briton via TKO in April.

“Who’s out there? Who’s available?” Fury asked on Thursday. “Zhang, he was a good little fight, but Joyce wants his rematch, so that’s not happening now.

“I’m looking to fight anybody, any time, any place. I cannot wait to fight Usyk, AJ. Whoever’s out there, I’m f***ing you up.”

Ruiz Jr is a former unified heavyweight champion, having taken the titles from Joshua with a shock TKO win in June 2019. Six months later, Joshua outpointed the Mexican-American to regain the belts.
