Deontay Wilder when the time came put Luis Ortiz away in the 10th round of what turned out to be an excellent fight in the end. A battle that had those on the edge of their seats.
He had to weather a storm in the 7th round that he had never faced in his career before as a professional, where he was rocked and hurt badly.
In true heavyweight champion fashion he came back stronger to close out the show, as fans like to see from the heavyweights too – inside the distance.
The moment he ended things had people in awe at ringside including the Corona Girls as pointed out by SundayPuncher Boxing Twitter (hat tip):

Wilder now moves on to potentially some massive fights next up.
Up to and including one with Anthony Joshua that fight fans seem to be screaming for at the moment.
But in the heavyweight division of course one punch can change a plan at the drop of a hat.
Joshua’s next opponent on March 31st Joseph Parker will be looking to do exactly that.
Makes no bones about it.
