And that makes the makes the current heavyweight division, if not exactly transcendent, in its own way resurgent. Sure, there have been recent exceptions like Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, but they're the outliers. He believes the best way to do that is to offer fans a highlight-reel ending similar to the one he produced against Bermane Stiverne previous year.

Wilder claims that it's Joshua's team that hasn't wanted to take the next step. The majority of the industry assumes that, if all goes to plan and the two heavyweights win their respective bouts this month, a megafight is around the corner. There's no way around that; it's simply a fact of the sport. He's a very skilled fighter with a lot of pop.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has been continuing to speakabout Anthony Joshua, and this time called Eddie Hearn out too. The only thing missing is convincing the public that he's the genuine article.

Assuming they both continue to win, of course.

The WBC wouldn't allow Wilder to fight Ortiz because Ortiz tested positive for two diuretics - chlorothiazide and hydrochlorothiazide - in a test administered by VADA as part of the WBC's "Clean Boxing Program".

Who hits harder between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder? Wilder went on to defend and finish Stiverne instead, setting up the bout for this year with Ortiz.

50 is a good dude, and he's a big boxing fan and a big boxing fan of mine as well. I don't think he has a promoter at the moment, so if he doesn't - Deontay just pick up the phone, drop me a line. With a Deontay Wilder fight, you just never know when it's gonna come.

Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs), nicknamed "King Kong", looked dominant against Daniel Martz in December, notching a highlight-reel KO in the second round. He'd be favored over every opponent Wilder has ever faced. Although he is 32 years old and a veteran of 39 professional fights, he very much resembles a guy who took up boxing late in life, and as an afterthought, which is exactly what he did.

Ortiz is a bigger and more refined boxer than Szpilka. We'll get this AJ fight, we'll make you some real money. There ain't no more time. Can Ortiz move around enough to not only avoid Wilder's right but also connect with his left?

"I had been taking that medicine for two years".

"I won't be chasing him around, but once I've finished with Luis Ortiz and if he wins against Joseph Parker, it's time, man".

"Hearn knows I'm a risky factor to his operation". Boxing needs Joshua-Wilder to be added to that list.

A group of nine players and officials, in Las Vegas for the world series this weekend, visited Parker and posed for a picture with the New Zealand world WBO champion who will fight Englishman Joshua in Cardiff on March 31.

Ortiz further stated, "Let Wilder talk and insult me all he wants to but he is in for a rude awakening come Saturday, March 3rd". "Although Wilder's size has been a huge advantage over most of his opponents, Joshua will be able to look him in the eye: "He is 6'6", has an 82" reach and routinely fights at around a chiseled 250 pounds. I'm the man that, when they put different fighters on the calendar. I want them to do that now and shower me with love now and understand what they are seeing. Until now, Wilder has refused to grant him his wish.

"And when I fight Joshua, he will be on the edge of his seat, which he should be".

"The British fans allow him to do this but once they stop entertaining this little cycle they got going on then we're going to find out".
