Ortiz hurt Wilder badly and almost knocked him out in the seventh round, only to have an incredibly resilient Wilder hurt the Cuban contender late in the ninth and finish off Ortiz in the 10th round. Wilder, like Ortiz, was also saved by the bell.
"I'm ready now", said Wilder. It's all mental at the end of the day. The 2008 Olympian also kept himself in line for an eight-figure payday against British superstar Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs), IBF/IBO/WBA champion.
The 32-year-old, who is 40-0 after Saturday's win, added: 'It's easy to see that they don't want this fight.
Ortiz slipped straight into a smooth rhythm, the only one to land any combinations of note and although he did touch the canvas in the second round, this one was clearly a stumble.
Ortiz, nicknamed "King Kong", pummeled Wilder at times. It didn't come because Ortiz was exhausted. "Wladimir may be a bit stronger, but it's hands down, Luis Ortiz has much more boxing skills than he did".
I can't foresee Wilder being tentative in this fight, so I can see some serious shots being exchanged. "My nigga, you ain't on no blood-pressure medicine", Wilder said. Wilder was all at sea as he returned to his corner. 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.
Wilder's last defense was a joke.
Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder remained undefeated on Saturday night (March 3) and retained his WBC title, after knocking out Luis Ortiz. Ortiz still shading Wilder. He knocked me off balance.
Ortiz did his best to back up Wilder during the third round. This gave Ortiz a few moments to recover but it didn't help.
And when Wilder tasted the power of his bigger and heavier challenger, the reigning champ had to dig deep in his arsenal to survive a scary round seven that saw Ortiz go berserk - raining a flurry of punches that had Wilder dazed and crouched by the ropes. But, soon afterward, Ortiz tested positive for nandrolone, an anabolic steroid; the Nevada State Athletic Commission changed his victory to "no contest" and suspended him for eight months. Ortiz, who has held the interim WBA title, is deferential only in his usual approach to a fight. That fight must happen before end of 2019.
Deontay Wilder has promised to to beat Anthony Joshua and unify the heavyweight division, following his 10th round knockout of Luis Ortiz. A gentle dabbing jab took the Cuban's attention and the ferocious right that landed flush on his forehead had "King Kong" down for the first time in his professional career. Ortiz countered with a left hand that made Wilder retreat.
Ultimately, the biggest criticism Wilder answered was his willingness to take on such a unsafe opponent, even after Ortiz failed a drug test in October that pulled him from their originally scheduled fight. Ortiz has some defenders, including Victor Conte, the convicted steroids dealer who now proffers himself as an anti-doping advocate.
