Deontay Wilder thrills with knockout of Luis Ortiz to retain heavyweight title

  • Showtime Boxing: Wilder vs. Ortiz Results

Wilder also dismissed the relevance of Joshua's 11th round win over 41-year-old Klitschko (64-5, 53 KOs) in London last April.

That fight at Millennium Stadium, on April 1, perhaps takes on even greater significance after Wilder's dramatic victory over the previously unbeaten Ortiz in Brooklyn, New York.

T-Mobile Arena has emerged as the most likely venue to stage the potential heavyweight unification between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

The eighth saw Wilder move his way through the eight, limiting Ortiz to his successes who looked worn out following a huge round seven. Wilder shrugs and lets out a hefty laugh. All Cuban boxers have it, they teach that. They know what they put in their system.

All three judges scored the seventh a 10-8 for Ortiz. That was the story through the first four rounds (tallied at 39-37 on BB's card) at least. "For that reason, I wanted him". And I feel that with Ortiz, he got the better skills.

Ortiz ended a lull in the action by throwing a combination at Wilder late in the sixth.

She said her biggest challenge has been making sure her children don't forget what they've learned this school year. The Republican-controlled House of Delegates earlier passed a 5 percent raise, an agreement that Republican Gov.

"In this sport, any punch can end a fight", said Ortiz. That lasted less than a round. A defensively-proficient southpaw with a left hand that flies down the pipe, nobody fights him unless they really have to.

Ortiz beat the count once, but not the second time. Befitting the undefeated champion from Alabama, it was a wild affair for the final few rounds after a boring series of pawing and gesturing by Wilder gave Ortiz a solid lead. He was one punch from being knocked out cold, but the champ held on to the bell, regrouped and got his head right.

"Joshua is Annabelle and he is pumping that milk out of there, as much as he can, trying to make that money from his man until the time comes". "This is my opportunity".

That should be a warning to Parker about the need for total domination to have any chance of eating a champion in his own backyard. Fighting a southpaw is a hard thing because you only see a few of them in your career, but they see right-handers all day long. This is big for all of Cuban boxing and I will make my country proud. I wondered why it took so long for him to get a title shot and now we know.”. A devastating loss and he will take a deep dive in the rankings, although the heavyweight division is the one weight class where guys march on into their forties.

So, we now look toward Wilder vs Anthony Joshua, the Heavyweight division's most anticipated showdown.

IBF and WBA champion Joshua is set to fight New Zealand's WBO title-holder Joseph Parker in Cardiff on 31 March, while Wilder has again called on the Olympic gold medalist to bite the bullet and go head-to-head with him.

Why Is Everyone Freaking Out Over Josh Allen?
As a young scout you get enamored with the physical tools - the arm strength, the mobility, the velocity a guy may throw with. Rosen, on the other hand, is about as smooth as it gets for a three-year collegian who turned 21 less than a month ago.

"The heavyweight champion is a man's man; he has some huge cojones", Wilder promoter Lou DiBella said. "I am the best and I am ready to show it come Saturday night that I am the best in the world". I think it's going to be a fairly tactical fight.

When asked by the host what he made of the fight, Hearn replied: "Yeah I thought it was a great fight".

The show in Brooklyn lost a bit of its luster when Jermall Charlo's WBC middleweight title matchup with Hugo Centeno Jr. was pushed back to April after Centeno hurt his ribs.

Skeptical boxing fans may not be convinced that the enmity between Wilder and Ortiz is entirely genuine.

"We see it. I mean, enough of the bullsh*t".

Following a thorough examination of Ortiz, it was determined he indeed did need to treat a condition, as claimed. I have a lot of friends in the UK. You'll all see on Saturday night why I've said the things I've said. He knocked me off balance. I plan on continuing my knockout streak.
