Dillian Whyte called out by dangerous Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz, responds instantly

BARNBURNER

A potentially stunning clash for late 2018

Dillian Whyte has been called out for a brutal bout by Cuban monster Luis Ortiz and instantly replied saying he’ll take the fight.

The Brixton man was issued a public challenge by Ortiz after previously questioning his desire and bottle.

Earlier in the week, Deontay Wilder gave an interview in which he stated he would be happy to face Whyte, if he first beats the Cuban (who Wilder knocked out in March).

He responded by telling Sky: “I offered to fight Ortiz years ago, but he didn’t want to know.

“He didn’t even want to know this summer and asked for silly money coming off his knockout loss to Wilder, and 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 fighting someone else on that day.”

After seeing the 30-year-old’s comments, Ortiz, 39, responded in an interview with BoxingScene.

“Didn’t anyone teach you to respect your elders, son?” he began.

“You must be smoking some good s*** to think you got anything for us.

“For a young guy you sure have a big mouth.”

The Cuban continued by calling out Whyte for a showdown on the undercard of Deontay Wilder’s next WBC title defence against Tyson Fury on December 1 in Los Angeles.

“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,” he concluded.

Upon seeing these quotes, Dillian Whyte simply stated: “We can go, December 22.”

It is well known that he is currently in negotiations to rematch Dereck Chisora on that date at the O2 Arena in London, however the pair are yet to come close to agreeing a deal.

As a result, Whyte has now offered the date to Ortiz.
