Ortiz Believes Wilder Is Overcompensating
During Tuesday’s controversial conference call featuring WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, and contender Luis Ortiz, Ortiz and his manager are under the assumption that Wilder is trying to convince himself that he’s better than Ortiz.
As reported by Keith Idec, Wilder made it clear on Tuesday that he will knock out the Florida based fighter when they finally face off on March 3rd in Brooklyn, but Jimenez feels Wilder is overcompensating.
“He’s hyping himself and hyping himself, and trying to believe in himself,” claims Jay Jimenez, Ortiz’ agent who spoke during Tuesday’s Conference call.
The Alabama native claims that all Ortiz would need to look at is Wilder’s record to see where his confidence came from.
“I’m very confident in what I say,” Wilder said. “No matter what nobody may feel or how they’re saying my promoter’s hyping me up and I don’t believe in my hype or [I’m] trying to build my confidence up, no! I don’t have to build it up because it’s already there. I’ve showed it 39 times,  knockouts. It’s about to be my 40th fight, with 39 KOs.”
