On the 23rd of November, Deontay Wilder, also known as the "Bronze Bomber", will be defending his current title as the WBC Heavy Weight Champion, against Luis Ortiz the former WBA interim heavyweight champion. The fight is set to take place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The question on their minds is, "Will Luis Ortiz, who has already gone through many trials and tribulations, by leaving his home-town and family in Cuba to pursue boxing, be able to defy and defeat the devastating power of Deontay Wilder?".
The power of Deontay Wider has be seen first hand by fans from all over the world, who have seen him knock out 40 opponents, from 41 fights. He claims, "Every guy I touch, it's the same result. When I land, it's like seeing one of those preachers on TV. When I touch them, they fall out."
When watching his boxing highlights, you will see that he is not joking, and that he really does have the power to "knock out any man in the heavyweight division". However, in the first fight between Deontay and "King Kong" Ortiz, Wilder did have some problems in that fight where he was nearly knocked out in the 7th round. Wilder won in the end, but it was a close call. It could have been his first defeat.
After this fight, Luis Ortiz has been passionate to have the rematch, and make amends for his mistakes in the first bout. When interviewed he stated, "I almost had him, and I think I would've if there were a few more seconds in the round, Wilder was definitely saved by the bell".
Luis Ortiz, has been training hard to defeat the WBC Heavyweight champion in this upcoming fight. He has been tirelessly working on his fitness and conditioning, to not give Deontay the chance to recover this time around.
However, Deontay does not think this will be enough to defeat him. In a recent interview, Deontay said, "people have to realise that God has blessed me with power. He hasn't got me this far for no reason. I feel like God has a plan for me in this sport. That's how I have came up this fast."
Both fighters have been an inspiration to fans from all over the world, and have shown the grit and determination it takes to become a champion boxer. Will Deontay Wilder's prophecy of his knock-out power come true? Or will Luis Ortiz's determination be what it takes to defy the prophecy, and bring home the winner's belt.
Could you become a Bronze bomber or a new King Kong? Have you got the grit, determination, and knock out power to bring home a world championship belt?
