‘Ortiz is definitely happening,’ he said. ‘I am looking forward to fighting him. After I knock him out I will go to Fury, knock him out and then we will go for a unification.’  

‘It has been amazing watching all the fighters,’ he said. ‘Moments where it has been memorable and history has been made, and upsets too – the sport has blossomed.

‘As a champion, sitting back watching it has been amazing to see what is going on and the dynamics. Once I get rid of Ortiz, I will get rid of Fury too. We will figure it out but Ortiz comes first.’

Wilder last fought in May with an incredible first-round knockout of Dominic Breazeale to maintain his unbeaten record.

There was plenty of talk about Wilder facing Anthony Joshua but the latter lost his belts to Andy Ruiz and are now working on a rematch in Saudi Arabia.
