Wilder: I Want To Knock Luis Ortiz's Head Clean Off His Shoulders!

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) is looking to make a big statement this coming Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Wilder make a defense of his title against undefeated Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs), who is viewed as the stiffest test of champion's career.

They were scheduled to fight each other last November, before the contest was pushed back after Ortiz failed a pre-fight drug test.


Unlike most of Wilder's past opponents, Ortiz has been widely avoided and comes from the highly respect Cuban school of boxing.

Ortiz feels Wilder's competition has been lackluster to this point, and believes that he can exploit the champion's shortcomings in one big swoop.

Wilder has the same thought process on the match. He says Ortiz has never faced anyone like him, which he feels will become the downfall of the feared Cuban.

"Somebody's '0', got to go and you all already know what I come to do.  I talk my talk to walk my walk.  It's going to be up to Luis Ortiz to prove me wrong.  He's got an opportunity to be the first Cuban heavyweight champion of the world.  It sounds good but he got a big task in front of him.  He dealing with a monster.  He dealing with a guy with a killer instinct," Wilder said.

"He dealing with a guy that ain't afraid of not one human being on Earth, especially when you get in that jungle and I am the king of the jungle.  I am the lion of the jungle.  He's never faced nobody with the pedigree with the killer instinct that I have inside of me.  He's never faced a guy that wanted to knock his head off so clean off his shoulders.
"He never been in there with a guy that won't back down, won't budge.  I can't wait.  I hope he's sleeping good, too.  I hope you're getting all your minerals, your protein and you're taking your medicine faithfully because March the 3rd it's going to be a real fight."
