Fury: Luis Ortiz Was in His Prime 45 Years Ago - Can't Beat Wilder

Tyson Fury is not worried about a potential upset loss taking place when he February 2020 dance partner returns in the fall.

Fury will return on September 14, when he faces undefeated Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Should Fury win, he says a deal is already set for a rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on a date in February 2020. Wilder and Fury fought to a controversial twelve round split decision in December 2018, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

But before that rematch can take place, Wilder will have to win on his side.

Wilder is scheduled to face dangerous contender Luis Ortiz in a rematch on a date in November.

In March 2018, Wilder stopped Ortiz in the tenth round - but not before the Cuban boxer had the champion in serious trouble during the seventh round. Ortiz was down three times in the bout before the referee stepped in to wave off the contest.

Fury expects Wilder to win the rematch in style, much easier than the first time. Ortiz has won three bouts since suffering that loss.

Fury believes Ortiz is too old and mentally damaged from the first bout, after tasting defeat and a stoppage inside the distance for the first time.

"[I don't think Ortiz can] really [win] because Luis Ortiz is 147 years old. He’s way past his best. I think he probably would have been in his prime about 45 years ago so Deontay should take care of business quite comfortable to be fair," Fury told Sirius XM’s At The Fights.

"When you’ve already knocked somebody out, you’ve already got the beating of them and they’ve got it logged in their mind mentally and they usually go into the fight already beaten."

He fought well in the first fight and piled on three victories after that. The Cuban has worked hard and earned his rematch fair and square.

[QUOTE=uppercut510;20006885]this narrative is getting old, okay the guy is really 67 years old, we get it[/QUOTE] I still find it funny. Especially when you throw in his heart condition. Dudes like the walking dead.

I agree, this is a mismatch and there is no need to see that. Wilder already stopped Ortiz in first fight and he will do it even faster now.

[QUOTE=cameltoe;20004983]He didn’t do anything to prepare himself last time, except put on 25 stone, drink himself to oblivion, and snort more powder than Ozzy at backstage party. Yet Wilder still couldn’t beat him then, what makes you think February is…
