Luis Ortiz Calls Out Joshua-Wilder
Following a unanimous decision win on Saturday night over German heavyweight, Christian Hammer, Luis Ortiz decided to lay claim to a world title shot.
Ortiz, who has won three straight fights since his March 2018 loss to Deontay Wilder, has called to be next for either Wilder, who is slated to fight Dominic Breazeale on May 18th, or unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, who makes his United States debut on June 1st at Madison Square Garden against Jarrell Miller.
“I know my fans love to see me smash my opponents but this isn’t a video game, this isn’t Xbox. It’s real. You have to lace your gloves, strap your boots and exchange hard blows. You don’t play boxing,” Ortiz told BoxingScene.com.
“After going 10 full rounds with Hammer, I feel ready and able now more than ever for a Wilder rematch. If not Wilder, then bring me Joshua – because, I mean after all he did again say publicly he wanted to fight me. If he says no again to my call out then bring me Tyson Fury. Let’s get some real fights for 2019. Let’s give the fans what they want.”
