After being rapped to the ring by 42-year-old Lil Kim, Wilder was greeted warmly by the 14,069 crowd here at the Barclays.
Even though Ortiz has overcome many of his doping issues, it seems as though he was there last night just to make up the numbers.
As a betting man, I would be considering whether to bet on Brook to win inside the distance or on points, and with his opponent's durability, having only been stopped late by the hard-hitting Tony Harrison, I'd opt for a points win for Brook.
Like Wilder did against Ortiz, Joshua took a couple rounds to get his legs back under him and regain some strength.
Ortiz said this fight would be like two trains colliding head-on.
Time is now, Louisville women cut ACC tournament threads
Duke (25-6. 13-5) claimed its 20th ACC championship past year by winning four games in four days, the first time that's been done. There are plenty of tough match-ups that the Cavaliers could face in the ACC finals, including both Duke and North Carolina .
The Showtime crew reminds us that Ortiz once tested positive for a banned substance, but he's been tested numerous times prior to tonight and passed them all. The WBC still pulled sanctioning from the bout and it was eventually scrapped.
WILD NOT MILD When is Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz, TV channel, live stream and undercard? The Cuban apparently was suspended for failing to disclose the medications and apply for a therapeutic use exemption. So, too, is the trash talk. Ortiz stumbled after absorbing that punch, but the ninth round ended several seconds later.
There are four undefeated heavyweights and each is basically a knockout artist.
"I'm ready right now.my goal is to unify", Wilder said when asked about fighting the victor of Parker v Joshua.
"The public will want it and the public will demand it", Deas replied. A true champion always finds a way. During a contentious conference call last week, Wilder delivered an unsparing assessment of Ortiz: "Once a cheat, always a cheat".
The Wilder camp won't be the problem.
"This fight is not only important for my family, but for Cuban boxing history", said Ortiz.
Iran's defense program none of France's concern: Velayati
French President Emmanuel Macron also said in February that Iran's ballistic missile program must be placed under global surveillance.
"In this ring it's not about how much a person weighs, it's not about how big a person's muscles are, it's all about their heart".
"'King Kong' ain't got nothing on me!" Ortiz went down like a puddle, not a 17-stone man.
The true King of heavyweight boxing..
"There's a vast amount of experience that Ortiz has", he said.
Generally, Wilder doesn't start his fights on a seek-and-destroy mission. "The rest was history. I'm going to make history for myself and my country when I knock out Wilder on March 3".
Wilder, in outstanding circumstances, not only saved his reputation but enhanced it: he's unorthodox, certainly, but fought a vastly superior boxer and survived a world of pain to emerge victorious for the 40th time.
"They still on they high horse about that win, but how can you really be on your high horse when somebody else already dethroned him?", Wilder asked. "They have a little bit of an advantage when it comes to that".
