Wilder beat Ortiz in 10th round, ready for Joshua

Deontay Wilder has promised to beat Anthony Joshua and unify the heavyweight division, following his 10th round knockout of Luis Ortiz.
The ‘Bronze Bomber’ will join Sky Sports’ punditry team for Joshua’s fight against Joseph Park at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff, March 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office, after maintaining his unbeaten record on Sunday.
Eddie Hearn revealed Joshua would be happy to fight the American if they are both successful in their world title fights, and Wilder, having held up his end of the bargain, has once again called out the Olympic gold medallist.

When asked about a potential Joshua bout, he said:”I’m ready now. I’ve always said that I want to unify, my goal is to unify and I’m ready whenever those guys [Joshua and Parker] are.
“It seems like they aren’t in a rush to fight me because I am the most dangerous man in the world, I am the most baddest man on the planet and I proved that tonight [Sunday].
Before a potential fight with the WBC heavyweight world champion, Joshua must overcome Parker and Wilder has backed the New Zealander to cause an upset in Cardiff.
“I think Parker has a 100 per cent chance of winning that fight, he just has to be smart and stick with the game plan,” added Wilder.
“In this ring it’s not about how much a person weighs, it’s not about how big a person’s muscles are, it’s all about their heart.”
