Luiz Ortiz might not be in his fighting prime anymore but judging from his training leading up to this weekend’s big fight, he still has plenty left in the tank.
Ortiz would not be known for his speed, as would Wilder really, but you’d have to say Wilder is by far the quicker of the two.
And more explosive.
However this training video of Ortiz just a few days out from the fight gives plenty of food for thought:
It was only right if we come to Brooklyn that we show love so we stopped bye today to show love and get real work at the @atlascopsandkidsboxing gym while the other fighters keep talking and showing off while our guy stays humble and hungry .. #lessontobelearned #grownmenshit #WildervsOrtiz we like to thank @_tabrisov01 from the atlas gym for the vid thank kid 💯💯💯 @showtimeboxing
There’s a lot of pent-up hatred between these two coming into the weekend’s fight.
You can see it in their eyes every time they talk about one another with the media.
You can almost cut the tension with a knife – which should make for one hell of a fight.
