WBC heavyweight champion of the world Deontay Wilder is in full swing with his training camp ahead of his rematch with Luis Ortiz on November 23rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The pair fought last in March of last year in which Wilder won inside the distance.
But not before being severely tested by the talented Ortiz.
Recognized as one of the best pure boxers in the division. A technically very accomplished fighter.
Indeed, many believe this fight to be a significant risk for champion Wilder given that his rematch with Tyson Fury is so close next February.
Any upset could derail that massive showdown so a lot is on the line this month.
Wilder is taking things deadly serious and is even taking up scuba diving as a way to improve his breathing ability in preparation for the fight:
