Luis Ortiz Coach Expects Wilder Rematch, Feels Joshua Will Delay

By Elisinio Castillo

German Caicedo, who is the trainer of heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KOs), believes his boxer will get the rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) in the near future.

While there is a lot of discussion about a unification at the moment, Caicedo does not expect IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) to fight Wilder.

"Yes, I think [the rematch will happen]. Joshua is young, he does not have to hurry, he has time, he can wait as long as he wants with three titles and he continues to sell out stadiums," Caicedo told George Ebro.

Last month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Ortiz nearly derailed Wilder when he had him in serious trouble during the seventh round.

Wilder was able to weather the story and came back to knock Ortiz out in the tenth round.

Regarding Wilder, Ortiz believes his pick of marketable opponents is running thin and he needs a fighter like Ortiz.

"[Wilder is] a little older, he has no one to fight with. Luis was winning the fight before the knockout, so Wilder has to offer the rematch because he has no other opponent. Who will give him a fight? Breazeale? Martin? There is no other important opponent ranked under the World Boxing Council. I hope it happens on pay per view," the veteran coach said.

And of course, there will be some adjustments for the second fight.

"Some things [will be changed]. My way is to work hard, but I listen to the boxer, so let's find the best way to decipher the Wilder puzzle." Caicedo said.

The World Boxing Council recently ordered Ortiz to take part in a final WBC eliminator against Dillian Whyte of the UK. There is still no definitive word if Whyte intends to go in that direction.
