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

Having returned to his senses, Wilder unleashed a sequence of vicious combinations to grasp victory from the jaws of career-altering defeat.

"I'm ready whenever those guys are but it seems like those guys aren't in any rush to fight me because I am the most unsafe man in the world". According to CompuBox, Wilder landed 98 of 346 total punches (28 percent) while Ortiz landed 87 of 363 (24 percent). Cuban continued the fight and endured a hard sixth round, during which Wilder was so fascinated by the attack that she began to forget about the defense.

As expected, Hearn has had his say on Wilder's performance last night vs Ortiz, and he revealed all during a phone-call with iFL TV. It started very slowly with Ortiz able to move, flick out his jab and win the first four rounds without too much drama.

The fifth was to bring the fight into life with Ortiz firstly landing more and more frequent with the lead right hand for the majority of the round, even bouncing on his feet showing how nimble he was.

"I think me knocking out "King Kong" [is bigger]", said Wilder, who wants to fight Joshua as soon as possible.

Luis "King Kong" Ortiz is 38-years-old, but in some ways, he's more like an up and comer, having only turned pro in 2010, and only really picking up meaningful momentum on the global scene in the past couple of years.

Ortiz will lament his inability to finish Wilder, whose looked to be virtually out on his feet before the bell to end the seventh round sounded. The final short right uppercut - arguably the only textbook punch he threw all night - was sweet.

The eighth saw Wilder move his way through the eight, limiting Ortiz to his successes who looked tired following a huge round seven.

This was by far the most impressive win of Deontay Wilder's career.

But Ortiz received a second chance from Wilder. Wilder used the momentum to get some more punches land on Ortiz in the sixth round.

The only question now is if Wilder and Anthony Joshua-the top-ranked heavyweight in the world, according to Ring Magazine-will meet for a titanic clash, assuming Joshua bests Joseph Parker on March 31.

Deontay Wilder might speak at a million words a minute, but he does not waste them on idle threats. Joshua and Wilder are unquestionably the two best, most explosive Heavyweights on the planet, and the victor of their inevitable meeting will settle one of boxing's biggest scores.

Ortiz beat the count once, but not the second time. Wilder instead fought then-mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne and Wilder knocked out Stiverne in the first round on November 4 at the Barclays Center. "Luis Ortiz is definitely a crafty guy". I'm ready whenever those guys are.

"My goal is to unify and I'm ready whenever they are".

"I proved that tonight - this solidified my position at the top of the food chain".
