Tyson Fury: Anthony Joshua is finished

England's Anthony Joshua fights with US-Mexican Andy Ruiz

Ruiz wants £40m for Joshua rematch

Promoter Eddie Hearn would prefer the fight in the United Kingdom but Ruiz is demanding £40m to cross the pond after his seventh-round stoppage of the former world champion.

Anthony Joshua has announced his intention to trigger his rematch clause with Andy Ruiz Jr immediately following his surprise defeat to the Mexican-American boxer in NY on Saturday night.

After the fight, Fury sent a message on Twitter that urged his fellow Briton to "rest up, recover, regroup and come again".

But this week he told BBC Sport: "When a man doesn't want to be there once, he will always do it and it's hard to come back from". Hearn went on to say that the stoppage at the end of the fight was "100% right", adding: "If you actually watch it back, we were watching it last night, and Anthony says 'yes, ' and goes to walk forward, and the ref just nudges him and he goes back on the ropes, and then the ref stops it, and I'm actually glad he did, because Anthony would have kept going all night".

Here's what Ruiz recently said to Fighthub about wanting $50 million to fight AJ in the UK: "If they want me to go over there, they've got to give me $50 million dollars".

"Everybody thought that man could beat me". The fact he knocked out a fighter like Joshua, who I had seen on television and in person against Joseph Parker, it shocked me.

Joe Gibbs Racing already has nine victories this season, but Gibbs has only one win in the past 14 races at MI . After rain delayed the start of this race, it has now been postponed until tomorrow.

Hearn triggered that rematch clause and hopes Joshua and Ruiz will face-off in November or December, with a location decided in the next fortnight.

"Physically Joshua could out-train everyone", said the 30-year-old, who is preparing to fight Germany's Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on Saturday.

"Boxing isn't rocket science and today people are trying to make it a scientist thing".

British fighter, Anthony Joshua, is now number four in the world heavyweight ranking, as published by Ring Magazine.

"People who don't understand boxing look at a fat man and think he can't fight".

The German has a 24-0 record, while Fury has 27 wins and one draw - against Deontay Wilder - from his 28 bouts. "Nothing at all. I've been hurt 1,000 times but Wilder didn't hurt me once".
