And Speaking to DAZN Hearn who promotes ‘AJ’ claims he doesn’t ‘rate him’.

He said: “You know what, he doesn’t half talk some rubbish, Deontay Wilder.”

“I heard him, say, ‘AJ is a manufactured champion. I’m a true champion.’

“This guy has never beaten an elite heavyweight, right?

“Luis Oritz is about 47. By the way, he lost every round in the second fight and knocked him out in the eighth round. And he was wobbled in one of them fights.

“He won the title from Bermane Stiverne. He defended it against Bermane Stiverne. He defended it against Dominic Breazeale. He lost three times to Tyson Fury.”

He continued: “[Wilder] is capable of losing to any heavyweight in the top ten. He is also capable of beating every heavyweight in the top ten.

“This is a dangerous, dangerous man. I know this sounds [odd] but I don’t rate him!”
