Las Vegas – All eyes will be focused on the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this Saturday night when Luis Ortiz challenges Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight championship in their much anticipated rematch on Nov. 23 (Fox PPV).
Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs), stopped Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs) by 10th-round TKO back in March 2018.
Since their first fight, Wilder is coming off of a split draw against Tyson Fury back in December, and a first-round KO over Dominic Breazeale this past May.
Ortiz has returned to the ring with three consecutive victories, beating Razvan Cojanu, Travis Kauffman and Christian Hammer.
According to https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/boxing/3977478/line-history/ Wilder is a -642 betting favorite, while Ortiz is a +475 underdog.
Now the question I ask the family is who do you?
The Fighting Voice Family Picks
“We all know that both men are known for being strong punchers, and either guy can stop the fight at anytime with one shot, we saw Ortiz nearly knock the champion out in their first fight. I personally see this fight being close and going the distance. No I will not be surprised if Ortiz shocks the world, which can happen, but Wilder is just a different animal all together! I have Wilder winning by Split Decision” – Mark Elezaj
“Wilder learned from the last fight that Ortiz can do big damage, really quickly. He also learned that Ortiz is a better counter puncher than he lets off. Wilder will use his reach to pick his shots and try to end it as quickly as he can. If Ortiz can work his way inside and replicate his game from the 7th and 8th round of the last fight, he could come out with the surprise win, my prediction is Wilder by KO” – Geo Kocovic
“Ortiz looks mean this fight and Wilder seems like he’s not focused on this fight, thinking about Fury. I have Ortiz by knock out” – Rocky Elezovic
“Wilder by early knockout” – Frank Elezaj
“Wilder by KO in the 5th or 6th round after taking lots of risks to secure the win” – Carmen Kocovic
“Wilder wins with KO by 8th round after taking some damage via counter punches from Ortiz” – Ben Kocovic
“Ortiz by decision” – Maria Elezaj
“Wilder’s going to knock his ass out in the beginning of round 9” – Gezim Camaj
“Wilder by 9th round knock out” – Melvin Fernandez
