Deontay Wilder's Big 5: The Most Impressive "Bronze" Knockout

Deontay Wilder's Big 5: The Most Impressive "Bronze" Knockout

Deontay Wilder's career has shown that he is not afraid to fight against the best in the world on more than one occasion. The trilogy with Tyson Fury is a clear proof of this. The American dares to fight against one of the best in history as many as three times. The case against Luis Ortiz is similar.

In 2018, The Bronze Bomber knocked out the Cuban in the 10th round in one of the best heavyweight bouts of the 21st century. A successful world title defense against Fury followed. The match ends without a winner, but this ensures that the championship belt remains in the possession of the American. A few months later, he knocked out Dominic Breazeale in the 1st round. For the second time, Wilder won a world title fight in the opening 3 minutes. And then it's Luis Ortiz's turn again. About a year and a half after the defeat of the Cuban from the "bronze", he gets a new chance for the world title.

Between the two fights with Wilder, Ortiz recorded 3 victories. The most impressive as an opponent is the one against Christian Hammer. The chance for a rematch seems deserved. Both because of the qualities of Lewis and because of the good first game against Deontay. The Nevada show seems guaranteed.

The second leg is tied in the opening rounds. The Cuban is clearly making things difficult for Wilder. The two have a hard time finding successful shots, although they are persistently looking for them. Then the right hand of the "bronze" explodes. A winning shot lands right into Ortiz. The Cuban does not manage to count to 10. It is simply impossible after such a blow.

The matchup shows a law you have to follow against Deontay. No matter how well you stand in the ring, you have to block his shockingly strong arm. Otherwise you will end the match on the ground. Wilder wins his 42nd fight in 43 attempts. From as many meetings, the American has a remarkable 41 knockouts. Can anyone hit harder than him?
