Wilder Claims Ortiz Will Be KO’ed By Third Round
Deontay Wilder is known for his trash talk, and is now attempting to prognosticate the round in which he will knockout his opponent on March 3rd, Luis Ortiz at Barclays Center.
In a story reported by Boxing News, the WBC champion told reporters that “…people ask me the round and I always see threes.”
Wilder broke down the numerology a little more, claiming that his age is a factor.
“This year is a magical year. It’s the year of the 33. So, I see threes everywhere. I see three rounds or less, maybe shorter than that. It all depends on how I feel when I see him.”
Wilder also made a prediction regarding frequent target of Parker’s smack talk, Anthony Joshua’s upcoming unification fight with Joseph Parker. Wilder claimed that “I’ve always said ‘later rounds’. I see that fight going later rounds if Joseph Parker is smart in what he does. He has nice movement and is able to execute on all of the opportunities that he sees with Joshua. Because Joshua can’t move his head. He’s a muscle, body-building type of guy.”
You’ve seen my dance? [chuckles] With that, if he’s able to calculate what he needs to do in the ring – because the ring has a lot of secrets – if he’s able to do things he needs to do, I see late rounds. But, like I said before, I think they’re going to have to knock Joshua out because they’re not going to give it to him.”
