SOT, Deontay Wilder, Heavyweight boxer: "After this fight, I'm looking forward to the rematch with Fury, and then after I knock Fury out, I'm looking forward to the one [with] Joshua and Ruiz. Hopefully it's Ruiz, because if Joshua gets it, I don't think there is going to be a unification bout. But if Ruiz gets it, being that we're in the same stable, it'll be an easier fight to make. It'll be one that people can say 'we finally had a unification in the heavyweight division', and it will be Deontay Wilder. Their hands [are] raised and they say I'm still undefeated unified heavyweight champion of the world, Deontay Wilder."

SOT, Deontay Wilder, Heavyweight boxer: "You know the feeling is amazing to put leather to face, and feel the bone structure of someone's face in my fist, how that may sound. But, you know, it's an exciting feeling for me and I think when people come to see the heavyweights, they want to see knockouts. I understand, you know, skill is set in place, will is set in place, but when you come to see the big boys, they want to see someone get knocked out and I think I do that very well, and I'm looking to do that come [Saturday]."

SCRIPT
Heavyweight boxers Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz arrived at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Tuesday, ahead of their WBC title clash.
Both fighters were welcomed by a crowd in the venue before they posed on stage and answered a few questions.
Deontay said that to "feel the bone structure of someone's face in my fist" is an "exciting" feeling.
"When people come to see the heavyweights, they want to see knockouts. I understand, you know, skill is set in place, will is set in place, but when you come to see the big boys, they want to see someone get knocked out and I think I do that very well, and I'm looking to do that come Saturday," he added.
His opponent, Luis Ortiz, said that "God does not give an opportunity twice to everyone, and for some reason, I'm here again and I will take this opportunity."
At their previous fight in Brooklyn, 2.01m Wilder stopped Ortiz in the tenth round by TKO, marking the Cuban's first, and only, professional defeat.
Wilder, boxing's longest reigning champion, was shaken badly in the last bout and had to fight back to secure victory and remain undefeated.
The pair will go toe-to-toe on Saturday, November 23rd at the MGM, with over a million viewers expected in the US alone.
