Andy Ruiz Sr. Takes Aim At ‘Liar’ Deontay Wilder For Contract Negotiation

Andy Ruiz Sr. – the father of Andy Ruiz Jr. – has taken aim at Deontay Wilder.

Wilder recently came out and took shots at Ruiz Jr. for not signing the contract as all signs point to those two fighting. Yet, Ruiz Sr. says Wilder is a liar and the money being offered to his son is not fair.

“What happened is that Wilder is a liar,” Ruiz Sr. told Izquierdazo. “He (Wilder) and his trainer (Malik Scott) want Andy to accept a ridiculous amount of money. But Andy is not a random name. Andy is a former world champion, the first Mexican heavyweight world champion in history. A former champion, he made history.”

According to Andy Ruiz Sr., Deontay Wilder is offering Andy Ruiz Jr. only 30% of the purse but they want it to be 50-50 given neither are the champion right now.

“Wilder wants to offer Andy around 30%,” Ruiz Sr. explained. “We want 50-50, because Wilder is no longer a champion, he is coming off a very bad fight, where he fought against a sparring partner (Robert Helenius). I think that sparring partner took a dive. And Andy is coming off a good fight that lasted 12 rounds (with Luis Ortiz). It’s not good money, and I will tell you why. They are offering almost the same amount of money that (Andy) received when he beat Ortiz. How is it possible to receive the same amount of money with Wilder as we did with King Kong.

“Andy and Wilder are going to fill up a stadium, they are going to sell a crazy amount of PPV, because everybody wants to see that fight. They are not offering a fair split. The only thing we are asking is a 50-50 split, we are not asking for anything else,” Ruiz Sr. continued about Ruiz Jr. vs Wilder. “50-50 and we are ready to fight Wilder, and give him a good beating. Wilder will suffer the same beating as (Anthony) Joshua. Andy has enough money because of the investments that he has done. He has millions of dollars, and that’s why Wilder is angry, because he had to negotiate with me.

“He wanted me to persuade my son to fight for a certain amount of money, and he is dumb, he is stupid, if he thinks that I would try to persuade my son to accept a fight for that kind of money when Andy doesn’t want to fight for that amount,” Ruiz Sr. concluded. “He (Wilder) is out of his mind.We don’t have a deadline. Wilder doesn’t have any other options at this moment. Where is he going to fight? His option is to fight again with King Kong (again). But Ortiz is low profile now, nobody knows about him, he is not in the news anymore. There is Chris Arreola, but Arreola is going to fight Frank Sanchez. Joshua? He is not fighting Joshua at this moment. Fury? He is going to fight with Usyk in December, and most probably they will have a rematch clause, and they will fight again at the end of 2024. Wilder will be 40 years old. That’s why Andy is his only option, and with both of them receiving good money.”

As of right now, it remains to be seen if the Deontay Wilder vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. fight will happen.
