  • Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz will answer a ton of questions in showdown for heavyweight supremacy

Ortiz, unable to recover, was sent to the canvas twice more, with Wilder's right hand finding full employment until the referee exercised his duty and waved off the contest.

Deontay Wilder blasts Luis Ortiz through the ropes during their WBC heavyweight title fight in NY.

The WBA and IBF champ from Watford has the chance to add the WBO crown to his collection when he faces undefeated New Zealander Joseph Parker in Cardiff later this month.

He said: "I'm ready right now".

Joshua, 28, will meet New Zealander Parker in Cardiff, with the victor then likely to face the undefeated Wilder. "He's just got to be smart and stick with the game plan".

"In this ring it's not about how much a person weighs, it's not about how big a person's muscles are, it's all about their heart".

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is lighter than his rivals but he still has unquestionable knockout power.

Wilder had always said Ortiz, unbeaten himself, was far and away his biggest test and so it proved, the Cuban making a bright start with the champion looking as nervous as he was focused.

"Both Wilder and Joshua are electric to watch, both punch very hard and both have shown signs of vulnerability". "He was hitting me with those furious punches, but they didn't have sting on them". We all knew Wilder had the power to hurt just about any heavyweight out there, but what we didn't know is how Deontay could leverage his physical gifts during the kind of extreme adversity he faced at several points in the bout.

Nonetheless, he regained the ascendancy at the turn of the fight, and in the seventh he had Wilder saying his prayers: a sustained barrage throughout the final minute of the verse saw the rangy Alabama native mercilessly marched around the ring like a man on stilts, Ortiz's clever timing catching him clean on countless occasions and rocking his head six ways to Sunday. The American World Boxing Council heavyweight champion once challenged a man who had insulted his daughter, Naieya, who has spina bifida, to spar with him at his gym. "I solidified my place at the top of the food chain". If Wilder really believes that Ortiz is a cheat, one way to punish him would be to refuse to fight him.

"I wonder why it took him so long to get a title shot and we know the reason why now". When he leaves he ain't got nothing to worry about. reported that Ortiz and his team contended that he was taking medications to treat high blood pressure.

"You have to give the fans what they want, otherwise over time they lose interest". Wilder used the momentum to get some more punches land on Ortiz in the sixth round. A frustrated Ortiz couldn't push his cause in the eighth round and Wilder consolidated is energy before finally starting to find his range with his his strong jab.

Wilder finished a tentative ninth with two looping bombs, arguably stealing it, but would still have been well behind on the cards given the seventh might have been scored 10-8 in Ortiz' favour by anyone's estimate.
