Deontay Wilder survived the most turbulent round of his career before unleashing a 10th-round TKO in his first fight with Luis Ortiz back in March 2018.
The WBC heavyweight champion puts his title back on the line in a rematch with Ortiz on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, fully expecting another emphatic knockout to clear any lingering doubt of who the superior puncher is.
“In reality, nobody comes to a fight and wants to see it go 12 rounds,” Wilder said at the final press conference earlier this week. “People have other plans and things to do that night. It's my job to make sure fans leave entertained and with a dramatic knockout”
Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) is coming off a first-round obliteration of Dominic Breazeale in May. Meanwhile, Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs) last produced a unanimous decision victory over Christian Hammer in March. Entering this rematch, the 40-year-old believes that he can deliver the knockout that evaded him in that seventh round of his first clash with Wilder.
"I have plans to end this fight before the final bell," Ortiz told reporters earlier in the week, "but if we need to go the distance, I'm well prepared to take it all the way."
Will "The Bronze Bomber" add another knockout to his highlight reel or will Ortiz do enough to become the new WBC heavyweight champion of the world? Here is everything you need to know about how to watch the Wilder vs. Ortiz rematch, including the price and how to purchase the fight.
