FOR six-and-three-quarter rounds Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz believed he was on his way too becoming the WBC heavyweight champion of the world and next year meeting the winner of the December 7 rematch between Andy Ruiz Jnr and Anthony Joshua.

But then Deontay Wilder distracted him with his left hand and bent him in half with his right.
