Boxing results – Deontay Wilder’s unrivalled power gets him out of trouble against Luis Ortiz for a second time

Just like in March last year, Deontay Wilder's dynamite-loaded fists prove the difference against Luis Ortiz

UNDEFEATED WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder kept hold of his title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas by defeating old rival Luis Ortiz inside the distance for a second time.

After a cagey opening two minutes, Ortiz landed a couple of swiping lefts before the first round was out. Looking light on his feet, the barrel-chested challenger patiently probed with his southpaw jab in the second, searching for opportunities to whip his left hand over the top.

Wilder attempted to get his own jab going in round three, but Ortiz remained a threat with his heavy backhands. An overhand left hit the target from the Miami-based Cuban to exemplify this fact.
