By the use of Robert Segal: Deontay Wilder is open to preventing Andy Ruiz Jr next following his 12 round unanimous selection win over Luis Ortiz in a WBC heavyweight title eliminator ultimate night time time in Los Angeles.
Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) goes via Robert Helenius next in a 2nd WBC title eliminator next month on October 15th.
The WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said in recent years that his workforce would decide which of the two important challengers from the Ruiz-Ortiz and Wilder-Helenius combat will battle for the field title against champion Tyson Fury.
What might happen is the winner of those two fights will meet to decide who battles for the field title. Wilder says he’s no longer going to duck any fighter, as he wants to combat the most efficient.
If that suggests Ruiz is the next guy Wilder faces, he’ll be able & ready to take that match-up, supplied he beats Helenius on October 15th.
