Luis Ortiz (31-1-0) was offered a “low ball” to replace Jarrell Miller on June 1, his management team stated. The heavyweight Cuban was the top priority to team Joshua according to Eddie Hearn, but the British promoter previously said that Joshua-Ortiz won’t be happening because the manager of “King Kong” allegedly answered to Hearn that Luis needs more time to prepare.

The 29-year-old WBA “Super”, IBF and WBO world champion will still make his US debut on June 1 in New York and he expects an opponent to confirmed in the coming days.
