"I feel as good as I did at cruiserweight, I'm still the same powerful guy," Kayode said. "My trainer Freddie Roach has spent a lot of time in the gym with me. He has taught me a lot about my opponents and how to take advantage of them.
"I notice the difference when Freddie tells me things to adjust my game. He helped me with my footwork and positioning. He taught me new ways to make my opponents pay. Freddie told me that if I listen to him I will have no problem with this guy. He's there to make life easier for me.
"I will be able to keep composure and keep calm in the ring. It's not an easy task to fine-tune my brute force and strength but I feel great about where I am. After I knock Ortiz out or whatever I do to him, after that I will leave it up to my manager to try to get me a fight with Klitschko. I'm not scared to fight anybody."
