Fury: I'll fight Ruiz if AJ loses again

Fury: I'll fight Ruiz if AJ loses again Tyson Fury is willing to put a fight with Anthony Joshua to one side, if he loses a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.

But Hearn believes Fury was fortunate to avoid a stoppage loss as the referee ruled the cut had been caused by a punch, and the Matchroom Boxing boss questioned whether the heavyweight can recover in time for an expected second fight with WBC champion Wilder.

Eddie Hearn has said that Tyson Fury was “ very lucky ” not to lose his heavyweight fight with Otto Wallin after he suffered a horrific cut above his right eye. The 31-year-old former world heavyweight champion was taken to the University Medical Center of South Nevada with two cuts over his right eye

Tyson Fury was "very lucky" to avoid a shock defeat against Otto Wallin after suffering a cut that could jeopardise his February rematch with Deontay Wilder, says Eddie Hearn.

Britain's former world champion battled to a points win over Wallin last weekend, despite sustaining a gaping wound over his right eye in the third round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Ruiz Jr hits back at Fury after Wallin win

Ruiz Jr hits back at Fury after Wallin win Andy Ruiz Jr was clearly not impressed with Tyson Fury's victory over the unheralded Otto Wallin in Las Vegas.

EDDIE HEARN claims Tyson Fury was lucky to keep his unbeaten record against Otto Wallin. He told iFL TV: “I was flying back from LA, so I landed and I put it on Twitter and obviously I was like ‘wow.’ “ Very lucky to not have his first ‘L’ - not because he lost the fight - but that cut would’ve been stopped

Promoter Eddie Hearn felt Tyson Fury was " very lucky " to avoid his fight being stopped last Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. A loss would have derailed Fury 's February rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deonay Wilder. The cut will take several months to heal.

"I haven't seen it, because I was on a plane, but I landed and checked my social media and saw the scores and saw the cut," Hearn told Sky Sports. "I think firstly he's very lucky not to lose the fight with that cut.

"I think any other country in the world, they would have stopped the fight. I just think in those fights against that opposition sometimes you don't get yourself motivated to perform and obviously he didn't perform at his best, but he had the injury as well and I think you'll see him perform a lot better against the likes of Wilder and stuff like that.

"I don't know how long he's going to be out for. I don't think he'll be ready for his February fight, but I don't think Wilder will be ready for the February fight either, so it might work in their favour. I expect a different Tyson Fury against Wilder, if that rematch gets made."

Hearn: Fury 'very lucky' to avoid loss © Getty Anthony Joshua can avenge loss to Andy Ruiz Jr, live on Sky Sports Box Office

Anthony Joshua will attempt to reclaim his world titles in a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and Hearn still hopes his fighter could take on Fury or Wilder in the future.

"Joshua's fight dates have always been extremely solid and this one, December 7, Saudi Arabia, that's what we focus on," he said.

"I hope that Wilder-Fury does get made - it's a great fight for the division. Two great fighters and I hope that AJ can do the goods in Saudi Arabia and hopefully move on and fight the winner, but right now, all the talking about future fights is out the window. Just pure focus on Andy Ruiz."
