Julio recently returned to 147-pounds and challenged Ortiz during a BoxingScene interview. Dan, who is ranked #4 by the WBC, is willing to give Julio a shot to secure a top five ranking and get close to an Ortiz shot.

Julio is being positioned for a slot on the Amir Khan-Zab Judah undercard on July 23 in Las Vegas. Dan is ready to face Julio on the Vegas card.
