43-year-old former contender for the world heavyweight title Cuban “King Kong” Luis Ortiz (33-3, 28 KOs) shared his opinion about the last duel between American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) and Robert Helenius ( 31-4, 19 KOs) from Finland, which took place last weekend and ended with Wilder’s victory by knockout in the first round.
Ortiz, who lost twice to Wilder when he was champion, ahead of schedule, claims that such an outcome did not surprise him at all.
“And I told you all that (for Wilder) this is easy money,” summed up the Cuban.
Recall that the victory brought Deontay to the final of the WBC Candidates race, and now he has to fight Mexican ex-champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (35-2, 22 KOs).
Louis is convinced that there is no intrigue in such a fight:
“He (Wilder) will kill Andy Ruiz.”
In general, Ortiz wants a rematch with Ruiz, whom he lost on points in early September.
“Andy Ruiz should give me a rematch. Give me revenge!” called King Kong.
