WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder enraged after learning of the news. He gives his reaction with furious anger.
Team Ortiz hit back today at the WBC President tweeting that their man failed a VADA test. They said this was due to him needing to be on blood pressure medicine.
Wilder is not buying that however and is on a rampage at the moment online expressing his disgust at the prospect of the fight possibly not going ahead.
His initial reaction on Instagram firstly included this photo shop edit with a play on Ortiz’s nickname of ‘King Kong’:

DIDN'T I TELL YOU DON'T FUCK THIS UP @kingkongboxing ⁉️ SMDH. I'm so sick of you guys fucking with me, fucking up this brave sport with this BS. If you was that scared then you should have hidden under a damn rock until the coast was clear of me! You's want to be hard core fighters that cheat are straight up bitches, just keep fucking up this sport. I just can't believe this is happening to me again‼️ first it was POVETKIN dirty ass then Andrzej Wawrzyk clumsy ASS AND NOW ORTIZ dumb ass but yet steadily beating his damn chest like he's asking for a bunch of bananas 🍌 ape shit is what you are. I apologize to all the fans but I just can't deal with this shit anymore. Over this last past year and a half I've lost hundreds of thousands of dollars dealing with straight scared ass grown men and I don't think I can take much more I'm almost at my breaking point now. I had a stress break down last night and it wasn't healthy for me. I couldn't hold any of my emotions back and as men we don't want to cry but it all just came out at once, while big ass vein bursting out my head. @wbcmoro if possible I still want this ape shit head on a platter. I'm well acknowledgeable that's Otriz is taking something but I accept all responsibility that may occur in the actions of this fight. I'm really considering walking away from this sport I love so much. Like I always say "I'm the realist Champ in the business" and everything I've said has been true thus far so if this is it just know I've tried my damnedest to prove I am the best in the WORLD but other cowards have failed us into proving it I can only fight what's in front of me and the so called best just don't want to man up and face me. Much love to all my supporters, Hey we tried right⁉️ peace and blessings to you all and may we see each other again one day in paradise fishing. #BOMBZQUAD #TheBaddestManOnThePlanet #TheMostFearedChampionInTheBusiness
Speaking in a video posted later, Wilder went on by saying:
“Last night I had a stress breakdown. I don’t understand why these fighters don’t want to f****** fight me fair. I cant understand it to save my life. They do all this f****** talking. This some bull****. You supposed to be the bogeyman of the division. You a b****. A straight b****. That’s sad man. And then these mothaf****** want to sit up here and blame some blood pressure medicine. My n**** you ain’t on no blood pressure medicine. Lets keep it real. Keep it real to all the people. You not on blood pressure medicine.”
Ortiz’s management has since released the following footage explaining what the medication in question is for with the following interview posted:
