Deontay Wilder: “I’ve wanted you and I’m going to bless you again with another opportunity. I was ready the first time. This is a new day for you. I think you’re one of the best heavyweights in the world and I want to prove that I am the best. We must fight each other. You will have your fight.”

Luis Ortiz: “Anthony Joshua doesn’t want to fight either of us, let’s give the world this fight. There will be no excuses. I will be ready to do this for Cuba!”
