Saturday’s bout between Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz @ the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas
Saturday November 23rd, 5pm on Pay per view.
There’s no doubt that Luis Ortiz represents one of the two most dangerous opponents of Deontay Wilder’s career.
Even though Wilder scored a 10th-round knockout in their first fight last year [photo below], Ortiz’s power stunned Wilder in the seventh and nearly sent him to the canvas. For about a minute in that round, Wilder was in real danger of losing a fight.

About Luis Ortiz:
He is from Cuba, 40 years old and has only 1 loss.
He will fight a rematch from March 2018 at 236 pounds!
Ortiz is in superb shape, so an upset would not be a shocker.
Wilder survived anxious moments in the seventh round of the first fight and might have to do it again, but Wilder may prevail again by knockout, maybe a couple of rounds sooner.
Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs), who holds the WBC world title, defeated Ortiz by 10th-round TKO in March 2018.
Since then, Wilder has a split draw against Tyson Fury in December and a first-round KO over Dominic Breazeale in May.
They’re both great punchers, so either is capable of ending the fight with one shot at any time, as was the case in Wilder’s dramatic, 10th-round knockout win in their 2018 fight.
Having seen Ortiz in training camp, he is in superb shape, so an upset would not be a shocker. Wilder survived anxious moments in the seventh round of the first fight and might have to do it again, but I also like him to prevail again by knockout, maybe a couple of rounds sooner.
