Photos: Wilder, Ortiz Ready For War - MONSTER Weigh-In Gallery

Deontay Wilder has big plans. They don’t particularly include Luis Ortiz, against whom Wilder defends his WBC heavyweight title Saturday (on Showtime, coverage starts at 9 p.m.). Photos by Ryan Hafey, Amanda Wescott & Ed Diller.

Wilder weighed in at a very low 214-pounds, while Ortiz was a shade over 241-pounds.

Wilder is looking at a matchup with fellow champion Anthony Joshua — as soon as possible.

That’s not necessarily a wise move, looking beyond an opponent. Wilder shrugs and lets out a hefty laugh.

“There’s no factor that will be difficult,” Wilder says of the matchup on Showtime at Barclays Center. “He does some good things as boxing fundamental skills. All Cuban boxers have it — they teach that. They put their combinations together well.

“Ortiz has got nothing, but maybe it goes three rounds. No, maybe he has four good rounds in him. I am going to finish with him in devastating fashion, send a message to Joshua. Tell Joshua he got to do what he got to do, but he should be worried about me.”

Wilder’s last defense was a joke. Ortiz dropped out of the bout when he tested positive for performance enhancers, and Bermane Stiverne stepped in. That lasted less than a round.

That Wilder even had to bother with the out-of-shape Stiverne was an annoyance to the Alabama star, who barely worked up a sweat in improving to 39-0 with 38 knockouts; Stiverne in 2015 went the distance.
