Deontay Wilder proves world pedigree with brutal Luis Ortiz win

Deontay Wilder proves world pedigree with brutal Luis Ortiz win

Wilder's jab took a while to get going and with his famous right missing more than it hit, the NY crowd delivered the first serious blow of the night, with a chorus of boos as neither fighter went on the offensive.

A courageous Ortiz got back up again, only to have a rejuvenated Wilder attack him again.

With AP Photos.Deontay Wilder survived a pummeling from Luis Ortiz, then knocked out the challenger in the 10th round to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

But Wilder does not think a Joshua victory is a done deal, saying after his triumph: "Parker has a 100 per cent chance of winning".

Deontay Wilder has been branded a racist and a "c**t' after he accused promoter Eddie Hearn of exploiting Anthony Joshua".

Wilder turned on the power in the 10th round, and for the 39th time in 40 professional fights, his opponent succumbed.

In the end, Wilder came out victorious.

Ortiz said this fight would be like two trains colliding head-on. Ortiz, perhaps tired from throwing so many punches in the seventh round, didn't do much in the eighth.

"I feel fine. I did receive a right hand, but I'm OK". The WBC cancelled the fight to investigate and eventually re-instated Ortiz and placed him back in its ranking.

According to DiBella, Wilder's promoter, Wilder insisted on fighting Ortiz-a unsafe opponent, and possibly an undeserving one-because he loves competition.

After the pair weighed in successfully on Friday, Wilder faced off with Ortiz for the final time before fight night and posed for the photographers in attendance. Wilder took a round off to recover in the 8th, got settled back into the fight in the 9th, and proved why he's recognised as one of the most brutal finishers in boxing soon after. Wilder boxed effectively to slow down Ortizs advances and regained his composure as the round ended. Still, both fighters came out strong in the 10th round, with both landing big shots that wobbled each other.

Wilder threw a right-handed haymaker early in the fifth round, but he missed Ortiz badly near the ropes. It was a quiet round but a round which Ortiz had the upper hand.

WILD NOT MILD When is Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz, TV channel, live stream and undercard? He stunned Wilder with a blistering right hook and hammered away.

But Luis Ortiz was not able to capitalise on his early success and struggled later on against his younger opponent.

Wilder somehow stayed up to hear the bell but it seemed to be a huge turning point in the fight. One, he showed that when his chin gets checked, as Ortiz did in round seven, he can collect himself and soldier on.

After Ortiz's positive test in September, though, Wilder recorded angry videos, originally posted on Instagram, in which he called Ortiz a "bitch", and indulged in some pharmaceutical speculation. Ortiz fell to the canvas moments later, seemingly after coming in contact with Wilder's left, but Fields ruled that he slipped. Ortiz even hurt Wilder on a number of occasions with Wilder's legs buckling down, but Wilder was never knocked down to the surprise of many watching the fight.
