Wilder offers to take responsibility if WBC allow him to fight Ortiz
Deontay Wilder has stated his hopeful intentions to continue with a fight against Luis Ortiz despite the Cuban failing a drug test just weeks before their November 4 encounter.
Pleading to Sulaiman, Wilder stated: “If possible I still want this ape s***head on a platter.
“I’m well acknowledgeable that’s Otriz is taking something but I accept all responsibility that may occur in the actions of this fight.
“I’m really considering walking away from this sport I love so much. Like I always say, “I’m the realist champ in the business” and everything I’ve said has been true thus far so if this is it just know I’ve tried my damnedest to prove I am the best in the world.
“But other cowards have failed us into proving it I can only fight what’s in front of me and the so called best just don’t want to man up and face me.
“Much love to all my supporters, Hey, we tried, right?
“Peace and blessings to you all and may we see each other again one day in paradise fishing,” he added.
Dillian Whyte has already offered to step in and face Wilder on November 4, whilst mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne was scheduled to appear on the same bill and is currently in training for the date in question.
