- Andy Ruiz said he has been advised to be humble with celebrity status that comes with victory
- The Mexican champion made this known when opening up on meeting boxing legend Mike Tyson
- Ruiz will be defending his heavyweight belts when he faces Joshua in an epoch-making bout in Saudi Arabia
Mexican Champion Andy Ruiz Jr has opened more lid on the advice he was given by boxing legend Mike Tyson ahead of his bout with Anthony Joshua.
The Mexican champion will be defending his heavyweight belts when he faces Joshua in an epoch-making bout slated for December 2019 in Saudi Arabia.
"The Destroyer" as fondly called stunned the boxing world in June 2018 after deposing the British-Nigerian pugilist of his WBA, IBF & WBO championship in a fight he came as an "over-weight" underdog.
Ahead of his the fight, Ruiz was seen in a viral video helping a stranded driver push his car on his way back from training in what has been described as a show of champions strength.
The Mexican champion has now opened up on meeting Tyson and the advice given to him by the boxing legend in respect to life inside the ring and outside it.
''Mike Tyson, he was one of the biggest fighters that I always wanted to meet, and once I did he gave me some advice,'' the 30-year-old said.
“He just told me to be careful outside of the ring. Inside of the ring he said I am doing good and all that but just to be careful outside of it,'' the Mexican champion said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Anthony Joshua courted another criticism to himself with boxing legend Mike Tyson positing the British-Nigerian pugilist lacks knowledge of his potentials.
Tyson's comment came barely less than two months to his much anticipated fight against the Mexican champion Ruiz Jr slated for Saudi Arabia.
