In a game that lived-up to the hype, Nigeria beat…
By Abdulwahab Olatunji
Boxing fans will be treated to a feast 2:00AM when Luis Ortiz will challenge Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title.
This fight will likely live up to the hype ! We have a Cuban ogre facing a 6 ft 7 beast.Both wilder and Ortiz have gone through amateur boxing and have never lost a fight (wilder 39-0-0 / 28-0-0 Ortiz)
How will the fight likely go? Ortiz has never fought someone this tall, he will try to weaken Wilder with body shots from the inside and eventually try to land a K.O .
Wilder usually swings wild shots, his precision has been under scrutiny but one thing you can’t take away from the 28 year old is his ferociousness in the ring.Not many people will like to be in a ring with wilder, Ortiz will do well to avoid Wilder’s right hand.
The fight will be a defining moment for both of their careers .It either launches Ortiz onto the spot light or sets us up for a potential Wilder vs Joshua fight.
Prediction : Wilder by K.O
