Whyte Warns: Luis Ortiz is Old Man - I'd Leave Him in a Bad Way!

British heavyweight Dillian Whyte (23-1, 17 KOs) is still gunning for a world title crack at WBC champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

Whyte is the WBC's number one ranked contender.

The sanctioning body recently ordered Whyte to take part in a final eliminator with Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KOs).

The contest would be for a "second mandatory" position. Dominic Breazeale, according to the WBC, was given the mandatory position to Wilder.

Ortiz is coming off a knockout loss at the hands of Wilder - after they collided back in March at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Ortiz had Wilder in serious trouble in the seventh round, but he was unable to finish him off. Instead, Wilder dropped Ortiz twice in the tenth round for a knockout win.

Whyte has no idea how Ortiz, coming off a knockout loss, is right back in a final eliminator.

“Deontay Wilder doesn’t want it,” Whyte told iFL TV.

“He keeps coming up with excuses, he keeps trying to put barriers in-between me and him.

“Let’s break this down for the people. He just fought Ortiz, voluntary defence. Ortiz is ranked way below me. You knock him out – how can he just get knocked out in a voluntary defence and automatically he’s back in title contention again? No. When you lose for a world title, you go all the way down. It’s a normal process. When you lose you have to build back again."

If the WBC forces him to take part in the eliminator, Whyte cautions that he will batter and hurt Ortiz.

However, he will only face Ortiz if the WBC stipulates that Wilder must face the winner in a mandatory fight.

“But like I say, if Ortiz wants it, he can have it. But only if Deontay Wilder agrees to fight me next and nobody else. I’ll fight Luis Ortiz and I’ll run through him," Whyte said.

“He’s an old man, I’ll dismantle him. He’ll get tired and I’ll leave him in a bad way. A bad, bad way.”
