Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder Targets Luis Ortiz Again

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder Targets Luis Ortiz Again WBC champion Deontay Wilder says he is willing to give the unbeaten Cuban contender another shot as a failed drug test by Luis Ortiz canceled their scheduled November title clash. Not content to sit around and wait for Anthony Joshua to make a highly-anticipated heavyweight championship unification match, Deontay Wilder wants to stay sharp and continue his knockout streak. The WBC champion said he is willing to seek his seventh title defense against Luis Ortiz, vowing to finish the 6-foot-4 Cuban southpaw in four rounds or less. Wilder, who was working last Friday’s FS1 broadcast, watched ringside as Ortiz knocked out Daniel Martz in the second round of their match at Hialeah Park in Miami, Florida. Ortiz leaned his head through the ropes to taunt Wilder as nearby referee Sam Burgos stopped the bout at the 43-second mark. “Stay by your phone, Luis Ortiz, I’m coming for you. Be ready. Make sure you train hard, because I’m coming to whoop your ass…I’m gonna knock your ass out,” said Wilder, who entered the ring for a face-to-face confrontation with Ortiz. “I don’t want no excuses when I beat him. So, I asked Ortiz when he wanted to fight, and he said he’s ready now. So I’m definitely going to pursue this fight, trying to get him to sign and be in the ring by February. I think I’ll get him in four rounds.” Last month Ortiz was ringside at Barclays Center in Brooklyn as Wilder scored three knockdowns during a first-round stoppage of Bermane Stiverne. Ortiz was supposed to be in the ring against Wilder that night, but he was pulled from the fight after testing positive for banned substances. The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association found that the 38-year-old Ortiz failed to disclose two medications he was taking. The WBC fined Ortiz $25,000 for failing to disclose the two medications and re-instated him into its rankings. “I’m staying on top of him as far as the drug testing. I hope he’s not dumb enough to make the same mistake again,” Wilder said. “I didn’t see anything new, but I still think he’s one of the best in the world. He showed he’s back, and I’m glad he’s back. I want to give him another chance to make this fight.” “ I still think he’s one of the best in the world. He showed he’s back, and I’m glad he’s back. I want to give him another chance to make this fight. ” WBC Heavyweight World Champ Deontay Wilder on a future fight with Luis Ortiz Ortiz has remained in the gym throughout the year, maintaining his sharpness through sparring sessions with Trevor Bryan and John Wesley Nofire. “Those guys had been really good at mimicking Wilder’s height and style,” said Herman Caicedo, Ortiz’s trainer. “We were really dialed in on Wilder, but, of course, that fight didn’t happen.” “Give me Wilder, then (Anthony) Joshua and (Joseph) Parker. Whoever wants to get it first. I want to be the unified champion before I retire, and it doesn’t matter what order I beat them in … Deontay Wilder was there, he got in the ring with me, got in my face and talked a lot of smack,” Ortiz said. “But now, that’s done, and if he really wants it, he can get it. If Deontay Wilder’s a smart man, and his management are smart men, and anyone around him is smart, they’re not going to take that fight because he’s going to lose that belt, so he’d better be careful what he’s asking for.”   CONTACT: FRANK FIORE / Hialeah Park VP of Entertainment ffiore@hialeahpark.com Hialeah Park Racing & Casino, with entrances at 100 East 32nd Street and 2200 East 4th Avenue, is easily accessible from all major Miami highways.

With one lung gone, Hialeah Park owner John Brunetti focuses on giving

RACING NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE With one lung gone, Hialeah Park owner John Brunetti focuses on giving Hialeah Park owner John Brunetti was away from the property for several weeks this summer, recovering from lung surgery. He bought Hialeah Park in 1977 with money earned from his construction business. Jose Naranjo/IMAGEN Magazine John Brunetti is working harder to catch his breath this year. That’s what happens when you have only one lung. Brunetti, owner of Hialeah Park, had a cancerous lung removed this summer and wasn’t much seen roaming the 200-acre property, which consists of a horse track and a casino. It’s his third major health issue — he had a triple bypass in 1996 and a kidney transplant four years ago — and he acknowledges he has become a little more reflective. “I’m rounding third base and headed for home,”says Brunetti, a nonsmoker who turns 87 on Jan. 18. With that in mind, Brunetti has tried to expand the reach of his foundation, created in 1974. He has long been a supporter of the University of Miami — not just athletics, but also medical research and higher education — and has recently branched into human-rights causes and even more medical challenges. “I’m starting to expand the foundation, and a program for giving back.” That includes working with State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle to fight human trafficking, working more with Jackson Memorial Hospital and supporting the Wounded Warrior Project and healthcare for those born with a cleft palate. The Brunetti Foundation also sponsored the local PBS airing of Ken Burns’ recent series, “The Vietnam War.” “I’m growing my giving the way I grew my business,” he says. Then, tapping his heart, he says: “You have to ask yourself, ‘Where do you get your satisfaction?’” Brunetti takes after his father, Joe, who immigrated to Brooklyn from Bari, Italy, with his wife. They had married as teens. Joe Brunetti worked “every possible job,” and raised his family in a one-room apartment. John and his younger sister shared an L-shaped couch, sleeping feet to feet. Joe Brunetti eventually bought a lot for $50, then created a construction housing business. He built 7,000 apartments from 1946-53, when the U.S. was in a post-World War II boom. John Brunetti, meanwhile, attended New York Military Academy — “my father said he wanted me to have a life better than his” — and tried school at Rutgers University with plans of being an architect or an engineer. He didn’t like it, and transferred to the University of Miami, graduating with a business administration degree in 1952. He remembers being the only one in an apartment of five with a car, and as the youngest, he deferred to his roommates. “Let’s go to the track,” he remembers his roommates saying one day. “We went to Gulfstream, Tropical Park and Hialeah,” Brunetti says. “I loved Hialeah right away. It was breathtaking.” That spurred his interest in horse racing, to the point that in 1957, he and his father split shares of a horse. “I still remember the name. Vertex,” Brunetti says. Meanwhile, he flourished in construction, building a business that includes 5,000 apartments in New Jersey and 3,000 in South Florida, leading the area in what is now known as garden-style apartments. And in 1974, he heard the owners of Gulfstream Park were attempting to buy Hialeah Park from then-owner Bert Galbreath. So Brunetti called him, too. “I said, ‘I’m just a little person, but may I come talk to you?’” Brunetti recalls. It took until 1977 to close the deal, and Brunetti said Galbreath, who he felt was rooting for him, accepting Brunetti’s mother’s $400,000 certificate of deposit as a down payment. While Brunetti had an interest in horse racing, he also was doing well with construction. So while the story can now be reverse-engineered to make it look like a labor of love, he was also thinking business: 200 acres of park-like property in the heart of a city that could be used for homes, shops … just about anything. Since then, the track has opened and closed twice, and Brunetti took a case for slots at Hialeah Park to the Florida Supreme Court, creating his share of enemies and critics. And, like most racetrack casino owners, he lobbies Tallahassee legislators for a lower slot-tax rate, the right to offer blackjack and other casino wishes. But Hialeah Park has embraced him, he says, calling Hialeah Park’s grounds “the heart and soul of this city.” “You come to America to do better things,” he says. “If you were a baker in Italy, you would be a baker for life. Only in America can you be what you want to be.” And at this time of his life, he is focused on making sure he gives back. A health scare like the one he had will do that to a guy. “Yes, it has made me more reflective,” he says. “No doubt about that.” BY NICK SORTAL Hialeah Park Racing & Casino, with entrances at 100 East 32nd Street and 2200 East 4th Avenue, is easily accessible from all major Miami highways.
