The WBA heavyweight ‘mandatory challenger’ Luis Ortiz was not kidding when he demanded a fight against Anthony Joshua.
According to the rankings the Cuban is the next number one contender for Joshua’s WBA heavyweight title. The WBA stated that ‘serious alternative’ is required for Joshua to not defend his WBA title against Ortiz. This most likely means a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko and the angry Cuban is not happy about this.
“I’m ready for the biggest fight of my life and it’s not with regular opponents but with no other than the world ranking of the WBA,” Ortiz told BoxingScene.com.
Ortiz is willing to go all the way against the WBA if they won’t grant him a fight against Joshua.
