Boxing: Three Boxers in Deontay Wilder’s Mind to Face


WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder already has three opponents mapped in his mind. Two re-duels (vs Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury) and another match against Andy Ruiz (after facing Anthony Joshua in a duel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 7 December 2019).

Wilder has announced a rematch against Luis Ortiz at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, California, USA, November 23, 2019. At the first meeting at the Barclays Center, New York City, March 3, 2018, Wilder won TKO in round 10 out of the planned 12 rounds.

When asked about the schedule for his three battles, Wilder told ThaBoxingVoice that after Ortiz there were other questions. “After Ortiz, will fight (Tyson) Fury. Then after Fury, (Andy) Ruiz Jr.”

“I call Ruiz, because I think Ruiz will defeat (Anthony) Joshua. And if Ruiz does it, it means a meeting between me and Ruiz.”

“I want Ortiz, Fury, Ruiz, and that’s what I want. Back to back, back to back.”

If Jik Wilder can defeat Ortiz again in a duel again, then he has a great chance of getting the fight against Fury he wants.

In the rematch clause against Ortiz, there is actually a third duel clause (trilogy), as long as the loser decides to activate it.

However, Wilder did not expect this would disrupt his plans. Wilder did not expect there will be a third match against Ortiz. This means that the boxer born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA, October 22, 1985, was obliged to win against Ortiz.

“Right, the rematch clause was there. But, he won’t do that after I beat him a second time and dropped him again. We don’t need to worry about that.”

“He doesn’t even want to fight now, that’s why he ran away from the rematch.”
