Wilder: Certain Weaknesses in Luis Ortiz We're Looking To Exploit

WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder is deep into training camp as he prepares for his blockbuster rematch against Cuban slugger Luis "King Kong" Ortiz taking place Saturday, November 23 in the FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View main event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Recently, Wilder showed his talents in front of the camera filming the fight commercial for his highly anticipated showdown.

Even with the big fight commitments, Wilder has flourished during training camp in Tuscaloosa, Alabama as he prepares to be primed when the first bell rings on November 23.
 
"Camp has been going amazing," said Wilder. "I haven't reached my full potential or peaked in camp yet. We're still pressing and everything is moving smoothly and on schedule. I'm feeling good and I'm looking good as well.
 
"I'm working on throwing a lot of jabs and countering. I know that Ortiz likes to counter as well. I've been in there with him before. I understand what he wants to do and I can recognize certain weaknesses we're looking to exploit. It's going to be a good fight while it lasts. Everyone knows what to expect from Deontay Wilder. I don't have time to play games and I don't get paid for overtime."
 
Always one to find ways to push his training and his overall physical fitness level, Wilder has incorporated swimming and scuba diving into his conditioning program.
 
"For those that don't know, I'm a certified scuba diver," said Wilder. "I enjoy it and I've been doing it for a few years now. It gives me relaxation and helps keep pressure off the muscles in my body. It helps my body tremendously. It's also strengthening my legs and expanding my lungs so that I have more stamina. Water is great for exercise and I love it."

He made it to the 10th and won every round he wasn’t knocked down in. [QUOTE=Slicc;20143477]That's a pretty big "if", since he gassed out in the first fight, and was finished before he could even hit the 12th. He's even…
