Luis Ortiz accepts challenge from Dillian Whyte

Rather than sit on the sidelines while rival Alexander Povetkin recovers from COVID, Dillian Whyte recently made clear his desire to stay busy, calling out a number of heavyweight contenders. One of them, former interim WBA champion Luis Ortiz, claims he’s game.

Manager Jay Jimenez tells Sky Sports:

“I guess Dillian was calling his name and other names, and he reached to me and asked me, ‘Look, if that’s true, I would like to step in the ring with him. That would be a great fight.’

“I told him that I would find out. I think yeah, that would be a great fight.

“Luis Ortiz would love to take that fight. I say January, February [Ortiz could be ready].”

Ortiz (32-2, 27 KO) has fought just once since his unsuccessful rematch with Deontay Wilder in November of last year, needing just 45 seconds to finish Alexander Flores in a farcical mismatch He’s still no walk in the park, even at 41 years old , so Whyte (27-2, 18 KO) deserves some credit if this ends up being more than empty bluster.
