BoxingScene.com recently spoke with heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz (19-0) and his manager Jay Jimenez. They wanted to clear the air regarding the Cuban fighter's promotional status. Recent reports have suggested that Ortiz has signed with a major promoter but Jimenez said that Ortiz is signed only to Dade Promotions, a Miami based promotional company owned by George Carmenate and that they are looking to sign a contract with a major promoter soon.

Ortiz is ranked #2 by the WBA and is due to fight a mandatory for the #1 position that is currently vacant. Chris Arreola is ranked #3 by the organization and Ortiz made it clear that he is willing to face Arreola or any other top contender.

"I am ready for the big names. I can beat any of the top guys in the division. I feel like none of the top three ranked fighters in any of the sanctioning bodies can hang with me," Ortiz told BoxingScene.com.

The 34-year-old Florida based Cuban plans on returning to the ring next month and hopes to fight for a world title next year.

he fought better guys in his first 7 or 8 fights then he has the last few years. his career has stagnated. he's big but it's hard to get a good read on him as a pro because of his weak level of opponents... here's a few fights... [url]http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=597908[...
