Andy Ruiz Calls On Wilder to Offer Proper Pay to Fight

Former unified heavyweight champion Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz (35-2, 22KO) has taken to social media to demand that former WBC champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (43-2-1, 42KO) pay him what he’s worth.

The Bronze Bomber had previously mentioned to 78 Sports TV that plans were underway to arrange a fight with Ruiz. Fans awaited an official announcement that never came. Ruiz disclosed that he received a disappointing offer from Team Wilder, shedding light on the delay in finalizing the fight. In recent months, he’s shared videos showcasing his rigorous training regimen.


In a live social media session, Ruiz boldly claimed that if Wilder witnessed the intensity and dedication he invests in his training, he might be inclined to lower the payment even further.

“If you show Wilder what I be doing inside the gym and how I be looking, he’s not going to want to fight. He going to want to pay me less money. Fucking pussy ass fool. He’s going to want to fight me for less money.”

When someone insinuated that he might be avoiding a match against the former WBC champion, Ruiz made it unequivocally clear that he was not evading the contest. In his eye, he was rather emphasizing the importance of being fairly compensated.

“Ain’t nobody ducking Wilder, man. Tell him to pay me what I deserve bro.”

Tired of Ruiz’s unrealistic demand, Wilder appears to have shifted his focus toward Anthony Joshua. It’s undeniable that Ruiz has struggled to generate excitement around his name following a series of unimpressive performances. Additionally, he hasn’t stepped into the ring since September 2022. His challenge lies in aligning his compensation expectations with his current standing in the sport.
