Deontay Wilder Ready For Challenges Of Luis Ortiz

  • Deontay Wilder faces a big test in Luis Ortiz in Boxing's March Top 5

Super-anticipated showdowns in the heavyweight division between two big punchers are rare.

A proposed fight between Wilder and Anthony Joshua remains unlikely to be agreed until late this year at the earliest, giving Hearn confidence Whyte could benefit. "I am the most unsafe man in the division, hands down".

"Anthony is happy to go into that fight next".

"I think Deontay deserves incredible props for taking this kind of risk and embracing it", promoter Lou DiBella said. I know he has nice skills like all Cuban fighters. This fight is happening because Deontay is that good and he's that proud. Ortiz is a southpaw, which might cause Wilder some problems. He'd be favored over every opponent Wilder has ever faced.

Ortiz is also unbeaten with a 28-0 record and has genuine knockout power, but at 38 is six years older than Wilder, who was supremely confident he would extend his own record to 40-0.

"It's going to be big for me to get this win on Saturday for myself and for Cuban boxing". I'm a heavyweight. I don't need to make weight. He looks good, like that.750 hitter in high school who has a first-round draft grade, but until you see him against major league pitching, it's all just projection and opinion.

Look the part surely means a devastating performance this weekend. He's anxious about what I'm going to do. Check your sports books closer to fight time for changes and more fights.

"Deontay Wilder put everything aside to face one of the greatest amateur heavyweights in the history of boxing".

No boxer has held all four heavyweight belts simultaneously.

This time though, the speech was not just about guns and the Second Amendment. "They hate individual freedom". He said existing gun laws and regulations, if executed properly, would decrease instances of mass shootings.

"The heavyweights have always been the shine and glory of boxing, " said Wilder, who, with some luck-along with a stroke or two of his right hand-could bring some of that back to sport that desperately needs it. "I've been fighting since I was 10 years old". Knocking Wilder off his collision course with Joshua would move Ortiz into position to make millions for future fights.

"But I think the fact remains: I am the most unsafe man in the heavyweight division".

When Ortiz does manage to get inside of the champ's reach, he will hit and perhaps even hurt Wilder, but that shouldn't be often. He's got to deal with Parker first on March 31, it's a tough fight. Also, take note in those matchups there wasn't one pairing of two punchers with the exception of Lewis-Tyson and Lewis was really a boxer-puncher.

If Wilder and Joshua face-off this year, who takes it?

Parker will face Joshua in a unification bout for the Kiwi's WBO title, and the Brit's IBF and WBA crowns at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

"I'm not the kind that likes to trash talk, but I've had it with this guy", Ortiz said. "And the last offer I made, they don't think I'm serious about it".

The fight was canned, and now he had a valid excuse not to schedule another fight against him. Therefore I can't pick against Wilder. I don't believe Hearn wants this fight at all.

"We know his story about his daughter, and you guys all know my story about my daughter, so when I saw that I thought, 'You know, I've got to bless him with a second opportunity because he's trying to support his family just as well as I'm trying to support my family'".
