According to this recent interview with Luis Ortiz by DAZN, Ortiz isn’t happy with the WBC heavyweight champion and how he conducts himself in the ring.
“I don’t necessarily see anything that could have been done differently on my part,” Ortiz said through an interpreter on a recent conference call. “I think that some of the things that Wilder did, and the antics that Wilder does could be dealt with differently this time around, the illegal things. Blows that he throws with the inside of his fists, punching down from the top of the head down and all kinds of craziness that he does, which makes it very difficult to get settled in any fight and quite frankly should be illegal and borderline criminal.”

Wilder said about Ortiz: “He’s one of the best in the world. Nobody has given Ortiz an opportunity, even after I defeated him.
“Normally after you knock somebody out, other guys are willing to fight him because they have seen weakness, chinks in the armour. They didn’t want to fight Ortiz, they don’t want to fight him now.
“This might be his last hurrah, at 40 years old. You all know that when you fight Deontay Wilder, I take something from you.
“This is what it’s all about – the heavyweight division, the big boys, the heavy hitters – where one hit can end everything, no matter how hard a person has worked. No matter how many weeks, how many months. One blow can end it all, and we already know I am the hardest hitter in boxing history.”
Who Will Win?
Wilder is now emerging as the most powerful of all the current heavyweight boxers. While he drew with Tyson Fury, “The Gypsy King” may have wandering eyes for the WWE and now talks of a MMA fight are emerging. Wilder is focused on the prize and with a second win over Luis Ortiz he can secure a rematch with Tyson Fury as that’s the real fight we want to see again.
