Luis Ortiz is confident he can put an end to Deontay Wilder’s plans to face Tyson Fury again on February 22.
Ortiz has a second chance to end the undefeated record of Wilder when they meet in Las Vegas on November 23.
The pair traded blows in March 2018, with Ortiz rocking Wilder before being taken out late on.
“I’m very happy to have this opportunity at the rematch. Wilder had the courage to take the rematch and that’s a big part of why this is happening. I’m excited about this fight and I’m going to make the most of it,” said Ortiz. “There are no excuses for me. The first fight is over. Now we’re on to this fight. I’m going to get the victory. There are things that are being done differently, but it will all be decided in the ring.”
On the potential to blow Wilder vs Fury 2 out of the water, Ortiz replied: “I’m focused on this fight and only this fight.
“I’m not a man of many words, but the opportunity is here and it was destined to be. Here we go. A warrior doesn’t abandon his mission. My mission is to become a world champion. I’ve trained very hard since my loss and it will all culminate on November 23. I won’t make the same mistake this time as I made in the last fight. I’m going to be more prepared, more aggressive and have more of everything. I’m taking it all up a level.”
