Bring on Joshua, says Wilder after knocking out Ortiz

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

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

Ortiz himself began starting to push Wilder backwards as he himself started to land shots of substance onto the champion. I thought I had him out on his feet.

The champion from Alabama moved to 40-0 with a 10th round TKO that finished a wildly entertaining and seesawing contest.

"But listen, fair play to Wilder". "Oh my God", he said.

Ortiz started better of the two fighters, sending Wilder to the canvas twice before the 2: 05-minute mark.

After the fight, a disappointed Ortiz said: "It was a great fight and I performed well".

'His promoter does not want that fight and after seeing what happened to Ortiz they are definitely not going to want it. We knew we had to wear him down. Ortiz showed how open Wilder is at times, which a big puncher can capitalise on.

But Wilder is not sure Joshua, who has a ideal record of 20 wins from 20 fights with 20 knockouts, actually wants to face him for all the belts. At the time of the knockout, Fightful had Ortiz winning 87-83 while all three judges at ringside had Wilder winning 85-84.

I'm not a fan of Wilder, I actually think his boxing skills are terrible most of the time, but that was one clinical, powerful, scary performance! It didn't have sting. I have knocked every opponent out for a reason. "He's just got to be smart and stick with the game plan". Ortiz returned, kept winning, and agreed previous year to face Wilder. Ortiz stumbled after absorbing that punch, but the ninth round ended several seconds later. The end seemed near.

"I must prove to myself and the people who is the best in the world", Wilder said.

Son shines for Spurs to make case for Juventus start
Son scored a terrific goal to give Spurs a well-earned lead, dancing around Lossl to finish a very well-worked team goal. Meanwhile Tottenham, just like last season, are approaching the business end of the season bang in form.

"He thinks he can beat him and Wilder is beatable, but Wilder is also very risky". It makes him entertaining but so vulnerable. But, you know, he made the wrong decisions at the wrong time and it cost him.

Round One - Cagey opening. Both guys landed late in the round but no damage. He put up a great fight. He spoke about Ortiz having to support his family.

Wilder did most of the damage Saturday with his right hand, landing some heavy blows that would have knocked out lesser skilled opponents. 10-8 round to Wilder. Though six years older than Wilder, the Cuban has fought 11 less bouts. The crowd was restless and rightly so - Joshua would have feasted on Ortiz, broken the Cuban's heart with boxing sense and acquired science.

Round Seven - Ortiz fires back! With a scant amateur record of 30-5, Wilder's early pro fights were basically an extended amateur career as he sharpened his skills. This gave Ortiz a few moments to recover but it didn't help.

The fight went 10 rounds.

Round Nine - Wilder is refusing to go quietly.

Then, in the seventh, Wilder was dazed and confused by Ortiz's assault.

Wilder also reiterated that is ready to fight the aforementioned Joshua, who is slated to defend his titles against WBO champion Joseph Parker on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Wilder's heavyweight rivals - Anthony Joshua among them - will have been encouraged by his seventh-round crisis. Wilder said. "A true champion always finds a way to come back, and that's what I did tonight". I am ready whenever those guys are. This solidifies my position at the top of the foodchain. "In this sport, any punch can end a fight".
