Deontay Wilder To Face Luiz Ortiz Before Joshua-Parker Winner

Deontay Wilder To Face Luiz Ortiz Before Joshua-Parker Winner

Deontay Wilder manager has been in talks for a unification of titles in the Heavyweight division and somehow this hasn't been fruitful, as his main target, the IBF, IBO WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has seen him unrealistic in demands.

Whatever the outcome of his negotiations with the Champion, Luis Ortiz still stands on his way to making his unification dream come true.

Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) was scheduled to face the Cuban back in November 4th but pulled out due to a pre-fight fail drug test and replace with Bermane Stiverne, who got knocked out a minute into the first round.

The WBC are out to make two big fights for Deontay Wilder and his Manager Jay Deas feels positive about the idea “I think the odds are pretty good (that this fight occurs),” said Jay Deas, Wilder's co-manager and trainer, to the Tuscaloosa News.

“He did test positive. That’s the second time he’s done that. They’ve really kind of given him a life line. The WBC has given him every chance to succeed. What happened is, he was hit with a really hefty fine and now he has to go under really stringent testing. He has to be clean all the way through. I think they have let him know, one more strike and you’re done. He knows it, and he would have to be an absolute idiot to test positive or take anything, even an aspirin or an multi-vitamin.”

He views the picture as an elimination where the four big fighters in the division face off then the winners square off for the final unification.

“Now it looks like what could be happening is...it could be the top four heavyweights in the world fighting each other and the two winners fighting for all the belts. That would be Joshua versus Joseph Parker and Deontay against Luis Ortiz, and then the two winners would meet. I think they’re trying to put Joshua and Parker at the end of March, so we’re trying our best to get in before that," Deas said.
