The PBC heavyweight is looking to stay active and get the big fights.

Heavyweight Andy Ruiz Jr made his PBC debut on last night’s FOX card, stopping veteran Alexander Dimitrenko after five rounds of one-sided action.

Ruiz spoke about what he wants to do next, and again said he’d be open to stepping in for Jarrell Miller against Anthony Joshua on June 1.

On when he had Dimitrenko hurt

“He started slowing down, I seen the face he was making every body shot I would give him. The main thing was stay disciplined, stay focused, not get too anxious, and just keep working the body until the tree falls down. He ended up quitting (after the fifth) round.”

On what he wants next

“I’m ready for whoever. I’ve been on a long layoff — six, seven, eight months. The main thing is to get back in the gym, keep training, try to get in better shape, and move on.”

On fighting Anthony Joshua on June 1

“That’d be a great opportunity if Al Haymon could talk to Eddie Hearn. I think it would be an exciting fight. I got some rounds in. If they give me the fight, I’ll go to the gym and start working out right now, like, right now and get ready for that fight on June 1.”

On facing Deontay Wilder

“Deontay Wilder, as well. He has a big fight coming up with Breazeale. Whoever wins in that fight, I’ll look to challenge them.”

On facing Dillian Whyte

“Dillian Whyte’s a really good fighter, heavy puncher. Whoever. The main thing is to stay busy, stay in shape, stay active. That’s something I’ve been lacking. Now that I’m with PBC, I’m pretty sure they have big plans for me. I’ll be ready for whoever.”
