The two Brits are set to square off in a unification heavyweight fight slated for June this year in a yet-to-be-named venue.
All four belts including the WBA, IBF, WBO titles held by Joshua and the WBC strap round the wait of Fury will be put on the line.
Ruiz Jr, once defeated Joshua courtesy of a seventh-round knockout but lost on a unanimous point decision in the rematch.
The Mexican-born American heavyweight once predicted that the Gypsy King would emerge victorious against his former challenger back in February.
"I think that it’s gonna be an interesting fight.
"I fought Anthony Joshua, I haven’t fought Tyson Fury. Tyson Fury has a real style, he’s tall, he fights tall.
"I kinda see Tyson Fury winning that fight. I wasn’t too impressed with Anthony Joshua’s last performance, but he got the job done.
"I think maybe Tyson Fury might get him, depends how awkward he is.
"If he boxes – Anthony hasn’t fought anybody that boxes around and moves around, so we’ll see."
However, Ruiz has now changed his mind and believes Joshua has what it takes to pull off the victory when the pair meet later this year.
However, Ruiz, Jr now thinks otherwise when he was recently interviewed by
In an interview with the Daily Mail:
"Fury has a really weird style.
"I feel if Joshua doesn’t box around – like he did to me – and goes forward, throws his combinations, I think Anthony will pull out the victory."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather has vowed to help WBA, IBF, and WBO champion Anthony Joshua prepare for his £200 million fight against Tyson Fury.
Although the venue and time of the encounter have not been agreed on, the boxers have signed a deal to face-off sometime soon.
The 44-year-old retired American retired fighter was by the ringside during Joshua's triumph over Kubrat Pulev last December and he is hoping to by his corner this time for his bout against Fury.
