Wilder promises an emotional bout with Ortiz

"The first fight with Ortiz was a contender for the Battle of the year, and this time it will not be worse," said The Bronze Bomber, who in March 2018 was close to defeat in the fight against the Cuban King Kong, but in the end won by KO.

Entering the ring with Luis Ortiz, Deontay Wilder risks his scheduled for Feb. 22 rematch with Tyson Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs), although, according to bookmakers, he is a big favorite in the meeting with the Cuban.
