Deontay Wilder believes Luis Ortiz would be the perfect replacement for Jarrell Miller in Anthony Joshua’s title fight on June 1, while he slammed Big Baby for wasting a life-changing opportunity.
New Yorker Miller has had his boxing license revoked after failing a drugs test, with three-belt heavyweight champion Joshua now looking for a new opponent to fight at Madison Square Garden.
Wilder fought and beat Ortiz in March 2018, his last fight prior to facing Tyson Fury, winning by TKO in the 10th round, and believes the Cuban would be ready to step in.

Asked who Joshua should face as a replacement for Miller, Wilder told AB Boxing News: ‘Out of all those guys, Luis Ortiz would be the man who’d be ready. Luis Ortiz always trains.
‘After my fight, he stayed training. He stayed doing something, he stayed waiting on that call. People want to talk about his last performance, yeah, yeah, yeah, we all have an off day, we all can’t be perfect, even the best of the best.’
Wilder also went on a passionate and length rant about Miller, saying: ‘I’m disappointed because he let his family down, he let his kids down. He let a life changing opportunity slip through his hands and that’s what I’m mostly disappointed in, because of the family.
‘He talked about how he came up and living with roaches and having to add water to milk, just like a lot of our culture who have to go through the same thing. But when you get this opportunity, you hold this opportunity dear. The things that you know are going to get you in trouble, you don’t do it!

‘This man, with the opportunity he had to make the money he was going to make, I wouldn’t have been taking nothing. I’d have just been drinking mother f**king water. Win, lose or draw he was going to get this money and it was life changing money, no-one was expecting him to beat Joshua anyway.’
Asked if he’d give Miller a second chance, he added: ‘Hell no. I don’t know what is going to happen to him.
‘He is not a likeable guy in boxing anyway. The people in boxing, the business side of boxing, don’t like Jarrell Miller because of how he carries himself, the things he says. A lot of people are happy this happened to him.’
