Legendary Boxing Writer Breaks Down Deontay Wilder/Luis Ortiz This Weekend
This weekend, World Boxing Council Heavyweight Champion and Tuscaloosa's own Deontay "Bronze Bomber" Wilder (39-0) will take on Luis Ortiz (28-0) in Brooklyn and some are saying this will be one of Wilder's toughest fights to date.
Combat sports writer for Yahoo Sports Kevin Iole joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss the first time he discovered Deontay Wilder, what Luis Ortiz brings to this fight and Wilder reaching the peak of his success with this fight and a victory and move him a step forward for the throne in the heavyweight division.
The Wilder/Ortiz fight was suppose to happen late last year, but a failed drug test by Ortiz canceled the fight and Wilder ended up having a rematch with Bermane Stiverne and defeated him my first round KO.
