Team Fury, however, have contingency plans in place for the WBC heavyweight champion’s December 3 return – which includes a potential clash with Ruiz Jr.

Dad John revealed to The Daily Mail: “We’re looking at other people.

“Look at Andy Ruiz, Luis Ortiz and Filip Hrgovic, or whoever wants to fight. It’s a good business.”

Former unified heavyweight champion Ruiz Jr revealed his desire to face Fury ahead of his decision victory over Luis Ortiz earlier this month.

He said: “I want to focus on four more years in boxing and give it all I’ve got, fight the top contenders.

“I hope and pray that Tyson Fury doesn’t retire because it would be an honour to fight him.

“It’s a bucket list fight. It would be a blessing to fight him.”

Fury, 34, performed a U-turn on his Monday deadline to AJ on Thursday, saying: “My promoter Frank Warren convinced me to let Queensberry carry on negotiating with your team this week, despite me knowing that you were never going to do this fight.

“So the deadline was Monday. “I allowed Frank to continue doing meetings with your team and your broadcasters and all that.

“Now we have BT, DAZN and ESPN all on the same page. They are happy with everything, they are all ready to rock and roll.

“You guys ask for a lot of stuff, you want to be co-promoters when you’re a voluntary challenger.

“Guess what, I said give it them, let them be co-promoters.

“You wanted full transparency, even though you’re not an equal shareholder in this party. You know what I said?

“Give them full transparency, I’ve got nothing to hide, I’m not trying to rob anybody, I’ve not robbed anybody of a penny in my life.
