Wilder: Last Fight Showed Nobody Has Skill Set To Beat Me!

WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) believes his last fight made a huge statement to the critics.

Wilder collided in the ring with undefeated Cuban challenger Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

After dropping Ortiz in the fifth round, Wilder was in serious trouble during the seventh round and barely survived as Ortiz was pouring on the punches.

Wilder full recovered by the end of the ninth round, when he buzzed Ortiz with a big punch.

And then in the tenth, Wilder unleashed his power punch combinations to drop Ortiz two more times for a knockout victory.

“Ortiz puts good combinations together and hit me with clean shots, but I didn’t go down,” Wilder said to Premier Boxing Champions. “I was a little buzzed, but I adjusted, which is the perfect example of a champion’s heart and mindset.”

After coming through his last fight in dramatic fashion, Wilder is confident that there is nobody in the heavyweight division with the necessary skills to beat him.

“It’s a dangerous sport, but I believe in myself, my heart and my power. Beating Luis Ortiz shows there’s nobody with the skill set to beat me. My goal is to unify the division, proving to the world that I’m the best. This definitely solidified my position as the baddest man on the planet at the top of the food chain,” Wilder said.

The undefeated champion is now planning to be ringside on March 31, when IBF, IBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua will collide with WBO champion Joseph Parker in a unification at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Wilder intends to call out the winner of the contest.

The clear target for him is Joshua. If the two boxers are able to reach an agreement on the financial terms, the fight would potentially land in the tail-end of this year.

Actually, it showed a 38-48 year old man suffering from a heart condition, coming off a long layoff, and 4 inches shorter than you was able to almost knock you out. Joshua is going to put you to sleep, you…

And Joshua has one win against a greatly diminished Klitschko. Charles Martin was a tomato can. Joshua looked like crap in his last fight with a gift stoppage against a sub mediocre blown up cruiserweight. Beyond a washed up Klitschko…

He only beat a guy who was undefeated with 22 knock outs that no one else wanted to fight. Wilder took less money to fight a feared heavyweight, rather than making more money against that creampuff Dillian Whyte. That speaks…

And a granite chin.

Despite what you say Wilder has a perfect record, with all except one coming by KO. Leading in a fight means squat if you get knocked out cold.
