WBC Heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder finally took the ring at the end of this year. Wilder will defend the WBC Heavyweight championship belt in a duel against Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas, United States, on November 23.
At the first meeting, the undefeated Uncle Sam’s country fighter knocked down the Cuban Heavyweight champion nicknamed the King Kong in the 10th round on March 3, 2018. Wilder will try to knock down King Kong for the second time at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
“I agree with those who say that Luis Ortiz is my toughest fight to date. Nobody wants to fight it and they still don’t have the courage,” Wilder said.
Wilder revealed if there were no other Heavyweight boxers who dare to face King Kong at this time. And, in the upcoming duel, Wilder believes he can overcome King Kong.
“In the rematch, there is more confidence and motivation to do what I have to do. I have seen the style before, ” he said.
“This will make it even more fun. I can’t wait to see how he tries to deal with me when I’m in the best condition.”
Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortis warmed up before the boxer nicknamed The Bronze Bomber faced Tyson Fury in a February 2011 duel. When fighting against Fury, the fight ended in a draw on December 1, 2018.
Fury can’t wait to face Wilder. Speaking after defeating Otto Wallin in early September, Fury immediately launched a challenge. “Deontay Wilder, I want you next!” Fury said.
