Luis Ortiz will try once more to defeat Deontay Wilder in the early hours of Saturday morning in a rematch of that incredible bout at Barclays Center in March 2018.

That night saw Wilder secure victory by technical knockout in a frenetic, ebb-and-flowing fixture, but 18 months on and both men head into this one undoubtedly hardened thanks to the experience.

American Wilder has never lost a boxing match, securing 40 knockouts and one draw, but Ortiz – who was also unbeaten before the fight – was by far Wilder’s toughest challenge up to that date. Yet, Wilder is 1/7 with Paddy Power to retain the title with Cuban Ortiz at 9/2 and a draw at 33/1.

Ortiz rebounded from that loss with three consecutive victories whilst Wilder mustered a draw against Tyson Fury and a sensational first-round knockout against Dominic Breazeale. But Ortiz is a truly intelligent fighter – as Wilder found out.

Where the Fight Will be Won

Both fighters began with trepidation in 2018, but it was Ortiz that appeared the most aggressive and active in the opening rounds before huge shots from the American landed Ortiz on the ropes and scrambling for his perfect boxing record in the fifth round.

The Cuban himself had Wilder on the floor in the seventh with the latter finally getting the better of his opponent in the tenth.

With Ortiz now 40 years of age, there are question marks over his durability, and, if the fight continues as long as last time then Wilder will come out on top again. But, it’s likely the fight will be closer than what most bookies are making it. Don’t be shocked if either boxer gets knocked down in the early rounds too.
