Luis Ortiz: I Looked into Wilder's Eyes - He is Scared, He's Worried!

Cuban heavyweight puncher Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) will be aiming to avoid the scorecards, as he wants to score a knockout victory over WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).

Wilder vs. Ortiz is taking place on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Showtime will televise.

In the televised co-feature, super middleweight contenders Andre Dirrell and Jose Uzcategui, who meet in a rematch of their May 2017 matchup, for the IBF-interim world title.

Ortiz feels a lot of motivation from the Cuban fans, because there has never been a heavyweight world champion in the country.

"Like I always say, this is my time and it's going to be a great triumph. This is big for all of Cuban boxing and I will make my country proud. This is going to be like two trains on the same track about to collide. I'm going to win and I'm going to take his belt," Ortiz said.
"This is not a video game. This is not using controllers. You have to actually step into the ring with me on Saturday night."

The two boxers were originally scheduled to fight last November, also at Barclays, but Ortiz failed a pre-fight drug test and the contest was pushed back.

When the two boxers stared each other down, Ortiz claims he saw fear in the eyes of the champion.
"Deontay is scared. He's talking a lot of nonsense. He's worried about what I'm going to do. This is my time. I'm going to show everyone. I'm 100 percent ready to go. Sparring has been amazing and I'm totally prepared for Deontay Wilder. Deontay's biggest mistake is that he talks too much," Ortiz said.
"I looked into his eyes and I knew that I'm not going to lose this opportunity. I'm going to be the first Cuban and the first Latino born outside the country to win a title. Saturday night will be historic. I'm going to make the most of my chance and knock Deontay Wilder out."

Trolling thin legs of a boxer is like trolling small hands of a president. Hands have nothing to amount of **** in person as well as legs to skill level.

[QUOTE=Butch.McRae;18534388]I read his camp feels strongly that Wilder beats Ortiz under any circumstances. I thought that was interesting. He's pursued Ortiz relentlessly. I guess they saw something on tape. We will see in a few hours if that was misguided.[/QUOTE]…
