Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24KOs) is looking to make his comeback after suffering his first career defeat at the hands of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
However, he is not just looking for any old kind of comeback fight. Ortiz is entertaining a showdown with 6’9″ former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury who recently scored a TKO after a three year absence. While this fight is surely not to happen anytime soon, this would be a welcomed match-up from boxing fans.
With Fury scheduled to return August 18, Jay Jimenez (manager for Ortiz) stated his fighter is more than ready to go for that date. Alexander Povetkin, who is a possibility for Anthony Joshua next, is also on Ortiz’s radar.
Regardless of who Ortiz faces next it’s good to hear he is ready for the best in the division. Taking a step down in competition does not appear to be one of his top interests.
