TONIGHT at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz took place for the WBC heavyweight title.
It’s a fight that had already fallen through once before, after Ortiz committed an anti-doping violation. But after being rescheduled, it remained significant for the future of the heavyweight division. Later this month Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker will fight for the IBF, WBA and WBO titles and the world will ultimately want to see all four heavyweight belts unified.
Ortiz was difficult opponent for him. He took Wilder to the brink of defeat but the WBC champion uncorked a devastating finishing blow in the 10th round.
