The boxing world is an interesting place. Those revenue streams are based on the gradual development, positioning and success of certain boxers. You can listen to his podcast, "The Fight Junkies" here .

"Everybody wants to feed their family; I understand but how can you say you a man when you take PEDs?" It's going to be up to Luis Ortiz to prove me wrong.

Wilder, who vowed to "end Joshua's career", was not holding back when asked about the British star.

"This is going to be like two trains on the same track about to collide", he said. With both Wilder and Joshua fighting in the month of March, the timing seems to finally be just right for the two superstars to fight later this year, provided they both win their respective fights. But make no mistake, he is capable of upsetting the apple cart as it pertains to a future Wilder-Joshua showdown.

Deontay Wilder can make Anthony Joshua "sweat" if he lands a dominant win over Luis Ortiz in their WBC heavyweight title clash in Brooklyn on Saturday [3 March], according to Carl Froch. That's just in me. They have said so many things to contradict themselves. I'm not like those other guys he fought. It's how I knock them out, it's what they do after I knock them out - that's what makes me unique.

Then Joshua and Hearn are hoping to secure a huge clash with the victor of Saturday's contest in NY, in a bid to make the Londoner the first man in history to hold all four major belts simultaneously. Wilder struggled a bit with Szpilka until the ninth round, when he caught Szpilka with a right cross that rendered him unconscious for several minutes.

But having said that, that occasion against Bermane Stiverne was put right in the rematch past year - when he brutally rendered the Haitian unconscious in quick time. I'm going to pass this test with flying colours. Not only people that have a voice to express. A lot of people always reflect on the old days but half the people don't know what the f-- went on in the old days, they go off of heresay.

"I don't have any worries about Ortiz at all".

"I do consider Luis Ortiz one of the best, and I do consider him as the best technical fighter in the game". And then being southpaw. He had been the WBA's mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua.

Despite his notoriety overseas, Joshua hasn't transcended into the American culture yet. This is the fight that the fans have been waiting for.

"We're gonna put the most unsafe with the most feared, and mix the recipe together and see what kind of cake we come out with", Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) told amNewYork on Wednesday after his media workout at the arena. That's what I come to do and that's what I will do. "Come face the king himself".

"The exciting thing about Saturday night is for everyone to see what I'm capable of doing", Wilder says. Wilder should and I hope he does. "I have a goal that I'm trying to reach - that I will reach. So that was a great experience for me and he was teaching me a lot". I have about 10-12 years in this sport, and I want to abide by that and get out. "I don't believe any man can beat me". I say it all the time.

"I don't want to be in this sport long".

"I think they need to do something about it as somebody is going to get hurt".

Ortiz then became really colorful. He said that Joshua would beat me in three rounds. "If I would have known, I would have said something to my trainer or to the doctors". "I get a title and I help my family". If I would have known this prescription drug was not allowed, I would have told my trainer and my doctor.

Now that's some business we can all get behind.
