On Tuesday afternoon, WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and Cuba’s Luis “King Kong” Ortiz made their grand arrivals inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. The two men square off in a highly anticipated rematch that headlines a FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View this Saturday, November 23.

“We’re all here to see what’s going to happen on Saturday night,” said Wilder following his arrival. “Even though I knocked Ortiz out the first time, it was an amazing fight. That was the fight that I was challenged the most during. I understand why none of the other heavyweights want to fight Ortiz.”

“He’s very dangerous and I blessed him with a second chance,” continued Wilder. “Fans always get their money’s worth when I’m on the big stage. Because people know what I’m able to do to another human being inside of that ring. I can’t wait for Saturday night.”

Ortiz fought valiantly the first encounter, and is focused heading into the rematch.

“Deontay Wilder is a throwback fighter like me, and we both want to fight the best,” said Ortiz. “I believe I’m the best and that’s why I’m getting this rematch. I’m focused on this fight and this fight only and doing everything to have my hand raised Saturday night.”
