Dillian Whyte to Sky Sports:
“Even now, Povetkin keeps delaying it, saying he’s sick. I’m like, ‘Okay, that’s fine, I want you to be at your best when I fight you’. Have as much time as you want, let me fight Luis Ortiz in February, and then I’ll fight you later in the year.”
Jay Jimenez (Ortiz’s manager) to Sky Sports.:
“Ortiz heard those rumours. I guess Dillian was calling his name and other names, and he reached to me and asked me, ‘Look, if that’s true, I would like to step in the ring with him. That would be a great fight.’ I told him that I would find out. I think yeah, that would be a great fight.
“Luis Ortiz would love to take that fight. I say January, February [Ortiz could be ready]. I know Dillian Whyte had that unfortunate loss and he was winning the fight, he got careless, and he got caught, but that’s the heavyweights. That’s the heavyweight division. You can’t afford any slippage. If that’s possible [to fight Whyte in the UK], yes we’ll go wherever the money is at. That would be a big fight.”
