Ending over a year-long hiatus from the ring, the 31-year-old went to the final bell and seemingly had a close fight against Arreola. Moreover, he was fed to the canvas in the primary stage, which alarmed the entire combat community.

Hence, Dillian Whyte turned to social media and ridiculed ‘The Destroyer’. Since Andy Ruiz Jr. couldn’t knock out a 40-year-old Chris Arreola, Whyte found all the reasons to demean his victory. Per Michael Benson, ‘The Body Snatcher’ had posted an Instagram story to address the issue.

“Andy Ruiz Jr. you are a waste man U couldn’t stop Chris. Chris is light work now s***,” wrote the Brit heavyweight boxer.

34-2 as a professional, former champion, Andy Ruiz Jr. can look to resurrect himself in the championship ride. Meanwhile, Interim titleholder Dillian Whyte is already a prominent name in the mix. So, a matchup between them makes sense.

Andy Ruiz Jr. vs Chris Arreola–A look back at their recent win

Andy Ruiz Jr. had to fight his way through Chris Arreola to claim the unanimous decision victory. The fight was a close contest from the early stage and remained the same. Although Ruiz Jr. could trouble his Mexican opponent, he had to receive the same from the other end.

Coming off strong in the fight, Chris Arreola could knock down Andy Ruiz Jr. He was also hit with power shots, but that didn’t seem to shake his confidence.

Meanwhile, Dillian Whyte has been active in the past few months. He has recently avenged his loss to Alexander Povetkin in a lopsided show. ‘The Body Snatcher’ fought for his lost WBC Interim strap and knocked out Povetkin to reclaim the spot.
