The Deontay Wilder ‘Bomb Squad’ chant was on full show at yesterday’s weigh-ins ahead of tonight’s WBC heavyweight title fight in New York.

Wilder came in at the third lightest of his career yesterday while Ortiz came in perhaps a little on the softer side.

A lot has been made at Wilder being so light at 214lbs for a 6’7 heavyweight – but pay little attention to it.

If anything, it shows he’s in tip-top shape and will be built for speed in a bid to take his perceived better boxer foe Luis Ortiz out inside the distance.

Aside from knockout talk and the serious business at hand, there was a lighter moment that happened yesterday where Wilder made one of the Corona girl’s nearly jump out of her skin.

Captured by the guys at IFL YouTube (hat tip):

Quality stuff, Deontay.

Obviously he’ll be aiming to do something similar to Ortiz tonight. Not with his verbal jousts – but with his fists.

Ortiz continues to be a live dog in the fight according to sports books at the moment.

Some still appear to be hesitant over Wilder’s skills against Ortiz, particularly if the Cuban challenger brings his A-Game tonight.

All shall be revealed soon enough though, as they say.
