Deontay Wilder shares this touching bond with Luis Ortiz

Deontay Wilder faces a big test in Luis Ortiz in Boxing's March Top 5

You take [drugs] in the first place, and you make up excuses, and then the blame is pointed at me.

But there is still plenty of time to iron out a deal, as Joshua may be three fights away from facing Wilder.

This Saturday is a busy night of boxing all over the globe, but in Brooklyn there is a very anticipated heavyweight title fight taking place at the Barclays Center when Deontay Wilder takes on his most unsafe opponent to date in Cuban top contender Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) in what should be an explosive heavyweight matchup. He's anxious about what I'm going to do. No matter what people say they're going to do, I always do what I say.

That would increase interest in Joshua and strengthen his position at the negotiating table with Wilder. Ortiz's team claimed it was just a paperwork issue about a drug that was on the banned list. He lost some time to injury, saw a big fight with Alexander Povetkin fall by the wayside when the Russian failed a drugs test, ... Although it has not been disclosed if Wilder has a rematch clause in his contract with Ortiz, most champions have one included in their contract as a sort of insurance policy.

With the birth of his first child recently happening, Wilder does understand why some boxers fight for the sake of their families, but he still offers no sympathy for those that cheat the integrity of the sport. His fight against Parker, a more formidable foe, likely will do even better. When he signed to meet Ortiz past year I predicted the bout wouldn't be realized and it wasn't, and now all of a sudden it's a go? Stiverne did and said all the right things right up until fight day. It's a frustrating reality that Wilder faces each day.

"Deontay Wilder ain't never stray from no fight", the 32-year-old said.

Deontay Wilder isn't the only one talking a good game before Saturday's heavyweight championship fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

But he has yet to fight in the United States, the most likely site for a unification bout against Wilder, and there is still some doubt about how well-known he is to American fight fans and how strong a box office draw he will be outside the U.K.

If Joshua beats Joseph Parker at the end of the month, he'll bag the WBO world title and add it to his collection which includes the WBA (super) and IBF titles. It's going to be easier for him to talk.

British fight fans would then have a hard choice as to who they want to see winning: Wilder, in his last hurdle before a potential Joshua clash, or Whyte, who has lived in London since childhood and who has a tasty rivalry with Joshua.

He's also costing the network a lot of money, so if we can relieve some of that pressure and put him in with the right guy, I would love to make that fight.

"I'm going to make history for myself and my country when I knock out Wilder on Saturday". Somehow, though, it hasn't really happened. That's the fear factor.

Wilder's story is inspiring.

"When I look at him and I look at me, we have similarities", Wilder said Thursday before a press conference in Manhattan.

Meanwhile Deontay, told when he first entered the gym that he was too tall and gangly and would be better off playing basketball, has risen to the point where many believe he is the one man in the world capable of depriving Joshua of his own dreams. I say I'm the best, they say he's the best. I give you results. I'm not ruling out a late 10th round knockout victory.
