WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take on former WBA interim heavyweight champion Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on Saturday and there are a huge variety of ways you can bet on the Wilder vs. Ortiz II fight at New Jersey sportsbooks.
Of course, this is a rematch from March 3, 2018, classic where Wilder defeated Ortiz by technical knockout in the 10th round in Brooklyn, making the champ a heavy favorite this time around.
The 6’7″ Wilder comes in with a record of 41–0–1 with 40 knockouts while the southpaw Ortiz, at 6’4″, is 31–1 with 26 knockouts.
The March 2018 fight saw both trade heavy punches throughout but Wilder landed the bigger blows.
Ortiz fought well but looked to run out of gas, which is one of several reasons the top NJ sports betting apps have made Wilder the big favorite to hold onto the title once again.
