Boxer who sparred with Joshua, Wilder, Ortiz and Povetkin ranks their power

Wilder clearly hasn't forgotten about the incident and appeared to take aim at Ortiz

It's frustrating how much a loss hurts a fighter in modern boxing. Ortiz will be looking to make history as becoming the first Cuban heavyweight world champion in boxing history if he could defeat Wilder and lift his WBC strap. The only thing missing is convincing the public that he's the genuine article.

A degree of paternal empathy with Luis Ortiz was a motivating factor for Deontay Wilder to grant him a second shot at his WBC heavyweight title. Super-anticipated showdowns in the heavyweight division between two big punchers are rare.

Despite confident claims from the larger than life Wilder this week that he is the most unsafe man in the division and Joshua has been putting off a meeting between the two, it appears that is not the way the big Brit sees it.

The last, and most apparent, reason the champion will likely retain is Wilder's reach advantage.

And Wilder insists he will do his bit to smooth over negotiations by agreeing to face Joshua in London should he come through unscathed against Ortiz.

Ortiz, the Miami-based Cuban defector, is the flawless fighter to test the defensive liabilities displayed by Wilder.

Wilder defends his WBC world heavyweight title against Cuban Luis Ortiz on Saturday, four weeks before AJ meets Joseph Parker in a unification clash for the IBF, WBA and WBO straps. He'd be favored over every opponent Wilder has ever faced. He's trying to collect as many checks as he can before it's too late. I think my face isn't on there. He explained that, as a heavyweight, he doesn't need to cut weight, which would make it useless for him to use a banned diuretic for illegal purposes.

For Ortiz, the questions facing him have more to do with age (he's 38, although unfounded rumors still circulate that he's much older) and whether his most dominant victories, including a dismantling of Bryant Jennings in 2015, were more the result of performance-enhancing drugs?

Responding to a fan who asked how Chi was doing, the 37-year-old responded that she's "the sweetest", calling her daughter the "best baby".

"I'm going to win and I'm going to take his belt".

"This is my time and this is my opportunity and it's going to be a great triumph".

"We're gonna put the most unsafe with the most feared, and mix the recipe together and see what kind of cake we come out with", Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) told amNewYork on Wednesday after his media workout at the arena.

Wilder is 39-0 with 38 knockouts and a U.S. Olympic bronze medalist who has a charismatic personality, a TV star girlfriend and a punch that could drop a horse. I have about 10-12 years in this sport, and I want to abide by that and get out.

"I have had to do some catchup in my professional career, " said Wilder, an all-around athlete who turned to boxing to help pay the medical expenses for his daughter, Naieya, who was born with spina bifida.

Counting Wilder out comes at the expense of acknowledging that he brings the most risky weapon of either man into the fight with his huge right hand.

Now he says beating Ortiz at the Barclays Center will prove it. The measuring stick for all big fights is the first fight between "Smokin" Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali back in March of 1971. You can listen to his podcast, "The Fight Junkies" here . Eddie doesn't have to take a punch in his life.
