Last Sunday, the WBC heavyweight champion of the world Deontay Wilder successfully defended his title for the tenth consecutive times after brutally knocking out his former foe Luis Ortiz in the seventh round at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

This fight was going very similar to their first encounter which took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last year. In that fight, Wilder was getting outboxed for the majority of the round until in the eleventh, he stopped Ortiz.

In the rematch last Sunday, Wilder was fighting at a similar pace and was getting outboxed for all of six rounds, until he landed his signature right hand and knocked out Ortiz with less than 10 seconds remaining on the clock.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was also very highly impressed with Wilder’s devastating power. MMA journalist Blaine Henry tweeted about the reach of both fighters. Wilder’s reach stood at 83 inches and on the other hand, Jon Jones’ reach was a staggering 84.5 inches.

Jones took to Instagram and stated that while he may have the longer reach amongst the two, Wilder’s power was a ‘gift from god’.

My arms may be longer but the way Deontay hits is a gift from God,” Jones wrote on Instagram.

After the fight, Wilder even made it clear post-fight that he wasn’t worried about losing rounds as his power could change the course of the fight anytime.

When you have power like I have, you’re not worried about if you’re winning rounds or not,” said Wilder. “I know sooner or later, (the KO’s) going to come. And when it comes, bam, baby, goodnight.”

Meanwhile, Jon Jones is scheduled to fight Dominick Reyes in February earlier next year in Houston.
