Luis Ortiz Slams Whyte: Strap Your Nuts On, Face Me on Dec. 1

By Ryan Burton

Yesterday an article was published on in which heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte claimed that former interim champion Luis Ortiz prized himself out of potential fight a few years ago and again this summer.

“I offered to fight Ortiz years ago, but he didn’t want to know,” Whyte said in the article. “He didn’t even want to know this summer and asked for silly money, coming off his knockout loss to Wilder. And [he] made it clear that he wouldn’t be ready for July 28, which was the date we had available. Funnily enough, it didn’t stop him from fighting someone else on that day.”

Ortiz ended up facing Razvan Cojanu on that date and blasted him out in two rounds on the Mikey Garcia-Robert Easter undercard.


The Cuban is now hoping to return on the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury undercard and would love nothing more than for Whyte to be his opponent.

"Didn't anyone teach you to respect your elders son? You must be smoking some good shit to think you got anything for us and yeah I said us. That goes for me, Wilder or even (Jarrell) Miller. For a young guy you sure have a big mouth. Down here us boys in the South don't do a lot of talking. That’s for cowards so you and Joshua - if you want some come get some because down here in the good ol' USA we bring it. We don’t sing it," Ortiz told

"So listen here young man. There is a spot open on this Wilder-Fury card so why don’t you strap your nuts on and come face me so I can show you a good ass whooping son. If not please take my name out your mouth."

Perhaps Eddie Hearn would consider putting Whyte in the ring with Ortiz after all. However, he needs the assurance that he could get Wilder vs Joshua on April 13; Because Ortiz is a very risky fight for Whyte and if…
