Wilder: Ortiz Doesn't Look Powerful, His Skills Mean Nothing!

Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) is widely viewed as the most dangerous opponent in the career of WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).

Wilder is not impressed with anything that Ortiz brings to the table.

Wilder vs. Ortiz is taking place later tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Showtime will televise.

The contest is concerning to people who are not even involved in the actual fight.

Eddie Hearn, who promotes IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, is worried that Ortiz could win - and it turn that victory would derail a potential fall mega-fight with Wilder and Joshua.

The British champion has some business of his own, when he faces WBO champion Joseph Parker on March 31 at Principality in Cardiff, Wales.

Wilder, in victory, would be ringside for the contest to call out the winner.

Wilder has no concerns when it comes Ortiz - whether it's his power or his boxing skills. Ortiz was a highly decorated Cuban amateur who won numerous international tournaments and had well over 300 wins in the unpaid ranks.

The 'Bronze Bomber' believes Ortiz's power might be a bit overhyped. Wilder just doesn't it. 

Against common opponent Malik Scott, Wilder stopped him in one round, while Ortiz was forced to go the twelve round distance - although he had Scott down a few times. 

"I don't have any worries about Ortiz at all. When I look at Ortiz, he doesn't look powerful. I know he has nice skills like all Cuban fighters. That's nothing to me. It's going to be up to him to prove me wrong," Wilder said.

"This is the fight game and everybody knows that you need to have confidence to be in it. I've had to fight all of my life because people said I wouldn't amount to anything. Here I am standing tall, because of that confidence I have in myself and my abilities. I don't believe any man can beat me."

Wilder is shook out of his mind. Ortiz will tag his ass up from rd 1 until he is slumped in the corner.

So it is clear...there is not a dumber khunt than Wilder connected to boxing. Broner is a total jag off but it appears his boxing IQ is so much better than Wilders. What a joke.
