Wilder, 32, will top the bill at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn in March and it's expected that the victor of the fight will take on Anthony Joshua.

A victory for Wilder, however, is far from a gimme. While Ortiz has turned in equally dominant (a 2015 knockout of former title contender Bryant Jennings) and pedestrian (a sleepwalking decision over Malik Scott in 2016) performances in recent years, it wouldn't be blasphemy to label him the division's most skilled fighter.
