DEONTAY WILDER has not been examined by too many massive heavyweight names but it surely’s not via an absence of attempting.
As a result of the Alabama basher has a wild-looking model, his technical acumen is usually questioned however that is an Olympic Bronze winner.
Wilder might be splendidly mild for this combat – beneath 16 stone for a person of his towering 6ft 7in body – and that can afford him nice pace.
Ortiz is a two-time convicted drug cheat and mustn’t even be allowed to combat for the distinguished WBC strap, within the eyes of many combat followers.

The Cuban southpaw was once a terrifying force but – when forced off the juice – he has looked flabby.
And although he claims to be 38, plenty of fellow fighters laugh openly about his actual age being well north of 40.
Wilder stops people with vicious power and Ortiz – even with his Latino skills – should go the same way.
It’ might not be the super-quick finish Wilder has managed in recent fights. But we can definitely expect the challenger to tire and get stopped after the opening six rounds…
