Tyson Fury has made a string on WWE appearances feuding with fellow giant Braun Strowman.

The Gyspy King is now set to face Strowman at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia on October 31.

Unified champion Ruiz, 30, revealed he was approached by the WWE, but turned down the move as he is too invested in his boxing career.

He said: “They invited me to go a while back when I won the title – they invited be to go over there and check it out.

“But you know what, boxing is my life so this is the only thing I know how to do besides being with my family.

“I’m going to stick to boxing and accomplish more and maybe down the line we’ll look for something else to do.”

Ruiz scored the greatest heavyweight upset since James “Buster” Douglas knocked out Mike Tyson in 1990, when the he dethroned Brit star AJ in June.

Joshua was decked four times before the fight was halted in round seven – with the rematch taking place in Saudi on December 7.

Underdog hero Ruiz insisted 6ft 6in AJ will fight on the back foot and try and nick a win on points, having felt the power of the 19st Snickers lover in New York.

He said: “He’s going to try and win by points. Especially since he’s going to be running around.

“My job is to cut the ring, and that’s exactly what we’ve been training for.

“I don’t really worry about what he’s doing, you know. We have to worry about what we’re doing. He has to train hard.

“I feel that he has more pressure than I do. I just have to do what I have to do, and just let my hands go and focus.”
