Words before battle
Deontay Wilder: “I will fight with Luis Ortiz, and I am proud that this is my 10 title defense. Many thought that I’ll never be a champion, and I have 10 times going to defend his belt. And I want to win nicely. Victory is always a victory, but I don’t like to leave the ring without a knockout. I am the master of knockouts. I don’t go around and around and just knock the opponent. Quite simple.
Always talking about the age of Ortiz. But who cares? There are many boxers who came out to the ring and showed class, being even older — for example, Bernard Hopkins or George foreman. Ortiz says he’s 40 years old and if you look at it — at least 45. And maybe all 50. But it doesn’t matter. Let it be 99 years old, I still intend to beat him“.
Luis Ortiz: “I don’t believe that Wilder knocked me out. In that fight I’m just dead tired, exhausted and lost all power. Honestly, it would be better knocked out than to experience such weakness.
However, I am aware of the power of the opponent. Deontay is the best puncher of the division, but this time I’ll be better prepared physically. Wilder is the best heavyweight of the decade, but only as long as someone doesn’t beat. We will have a different strategy to fight, which we hope to bring to life. The difference with the first match. I have a plan to send Wilder out, but I’m ready to go the full distance“
