Wilder vs Ortiz Predection
Wilder by KO On paper it's as even a heavyweight title fight as I've seen in a long time, but I'll go with the younger, more active, more athletic fighter who hasn't failed two drug tests and take Wilder by knockout in about eight rounds.
Wilder by decision/Late KO Ortiz is finally in shape, Wilder finally has a risky fight and that means it will be exciting. Wilder is too fresh and that will be the factor. Wilder wide on points or in a late stoppage.
Wilder by TKO7 Lack of action -- two rounds in 15 months -- and age -- some say he is older than his official 38 years old -- suggest Ortiz may struggle with Wilder's athleticism and volume of punches. Wilder is looking sharp, so expect him to overwhelm the Cuban in the middle rounds.
