Deontay Wilder next fight

Wilder clearly hasn't forgotten about the incident and appeared to take aim at Ortiz

Wilder clearly hasn't forgotten about the incident and appeared to take aim at Ortiz

The long awaited heavyweight championship fight between Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder, 39-0, 38 knockouts and also current W.B.C Heavyweight Champion vs. Luis "The Real King Kong" Ortiz, 28-0-2 N.C., 24 k.o.'s is finally signed, sealed with a delivery date for Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York. "Everyone knows who is the man in the heavyweight division, hands down", Wilder told Sky Sports. Most of the time it's R&B and old-school funk in the gym.

The promoter says he is prepared to offer a two-fight deal to Wilder, which would see Joshua making his debut in the US. "We don't know what he really did". Add to that Joshua fared better with the only common opponent they have, Eric Molina, that he's a better boxer with superior form and balance, with equal power, in my opinion, and AJ must be considered the better fighter until they meet. I'm going to keep proving people wrong just like I've always done.

Despite confident claims from the larger than life Wilder this week that he is the most risky man in the division and Joshua has been putting off a meeting between the two, it appears that is not the way the big Brit sees it.

"He's got an opportunity to be the first Cuban heavyweight champion of the world".

After his first round demolition of former WBC world champion Bermane Stiverne in November, Wilder is strongly favoured to get past Ortiz. He's talking a lot of nonsense.

"I'm feeling great, camp has been going great", he said during a recent interview. This is my time.

"Somebody's "0", got to go and you all already know what I come to do".

"I'm 100 percent ready to go". In many ways Wilder is trying to be a realist about his current place in the world and admits that he needs to be smart enough to get out at the right moment.

Fighters usually don't take a big risk when they're on the verge of a mega-money fight when losing would no doubt destroy it. I'm going to be the first Cuban and the first Latino born outside the country to win a title. "Give the fans what they want to see".

"We're gonna put the most unsafe with the most feared, and mix the recipe together and see what kind of cake we come out with", Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) told amNewYork on Wednesday after his media workout at the arena.

Deontay Wilder has tried to sell his whole fight on Anthony Joshua - he should worry about Luis Ortiz. They're going to make him mandatory sooner or later: "he's No 1 with the WBC". "So that was a great experience for me and he was teaching me a lot".

Wilder's fight with Ortiz is not the clash that was cancelled due to a failed drug test. But Wilder is fighting Ortiz because he's sick of taking the blame for the anonymity of his opponents. I like whatever sounds good, all types of artists, I like listening to Kevin Gates, but most times I'd rather not mention it because there are so many names-you can forget names. When I look at Ortiz, he doesn't look powerful.

We'll see if Ortiz is able to change the course of the heavyweight division and disturb Wilder's future plans.

When the first meaningful punch is landed by either fighter we will then realize who the eventual victor might be.
