Andy Ruiz Jr targeting September return against Luis Ortiz or Dillian Whyte


Fox Deportes’ Héctor Cantú introduced us the newest on former unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. yesterday. “The Destroyer,” who acknowledges that he was “a bit rusty” in opposition to Chris Arreola this previous Might, is reportedly in talks with each Luis Ortiz and Dillian Whyte for a possible struggle in September.

Cantú stresses that nothing’s finalized but, and it’s most likely greatest to not get your hopes up. Ruiz (34-2, 22 KO) and Ortiz (32-2, 27 KO) have been linked to a possible struggle final yr, however Ortiz ended up smashing the hapless Alexander Flores as an alternative whereas Ruiz waited till this yr to beat a tougher-than-expected Chris Arreola. Whyte (28-2, 19 KO) has been speaking up a possible return to the States, however his goal is reportedly Jermaine Franklin.

Plus, contemplating the WBC’s ceaseless quest to screw “The Physique Snatcher” over at each flip, Whyte could not wish to take an actual danger. Which, you recognize, honest play.

I’ll be crossing my fingers for Ruiz vs. Ortiz; the heavyweight division wants a compelling matchup proper now after the stream of rubbish it’s oozed out these previous couple months.
