On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the complete and unedited audio from Tuesday's wild media conference call between unbeaten heavyweights Deontay Wilder and Luis "King Kong" Ortiz. The WBC champ Wilder, 39-0 with 38 KOs, and the challenger Ortiz, 28-0 with 24 KOs, will fight March 3 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in a fight which will be televised live in the U.S. on Showtime and in the U.K. on Sky Sports.
As it progressed, or maybe regressed, the conference call got quite heated when Wilder started interrupting Ortiz's manager, Jay Jimenez, who was translating for Ortiz. We will have more analysis of this fight to come, but for now, here are these opening verbal shots in this fight.
