WORLD champion Andy Ruiz Jr has teased Tyson Fury over his "imaginary" heavyweight crown.
The 'Gypsy King' claims to be the "lineal champion" of the division having not been beaten since his 2015 victory over Wladimir Klitschko.
And Mexican-American Ruiz Jr, who shocked the world by beating Anthony Joshua last month, took a shot at Fury after hearing about his recent insults.
During a joint interview with WBC champ Deontay Wilder, Ruiz Jr was told that the Briton had labelled him a "little fat f***er".
Ruiz Jr posted the video to social media and wrote: "Two champions holding all the belts in heavyweight boxing."
A fan replied saying: "What about the invisible belt Fury has?"
And Ruiz Jr went along with the joke, adding: "I can't forget his imaginary belt."
The spat began when the Mexican-American was announced as Jarrell Miller's replacement to fight Joshua.
Fury posted a picture to social media of Ruiz Jr alongside Disney character Russell from the film 'Up'.
Fury told Behind The Gloves: "He can take it however he wants, the little fat f****r.
“Andy Ruiz, if you want a slap, you can have one and all, because I ain’t bothered about you fatso.
“I’ll hit him up the body and make him spew marshmallows for a month.”
But Ruiz Jnr's most immediate opponent is likely to be Joshua in a rematch for the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: "That fight is happening.
"Do you think Joshua wants a warm-up? No."
