Wilder floors Ortiz with a single punch to retain WBC heavyweight title (Video)

Unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder's power is nothing short of legendary, which Luis Ortiz found out for the second time on Saturday.

Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz

Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) broke open a one-sided fight in which he was being outboxed in Round 7 with one straight right hand that finished Ortiz via devastating knockout in their pay-per-view rematch at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The 34-year-old Wilder made the 10th defense of the title he won in 2015 and kept alive plans for a February 2020 rematch against unbeaten lineal champion Tyson Fury by scoring a second stoppage defeat over the often avoided Ortiz (31-2, 26 KOs).
