The perfect round with the perfect punch, Deontay \’Bronze Boomer\’ Wilder successfully defended his WBC Heavyweight belt on a rematch against Luis \’King Kong\’ Ortiz, Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A vicious right hand pierced through the defense sent Ortiz to the canvass. In that very moment, the fight was flipped 180 degrees.

At the count of nine Ortiz was still on his knees, referee Kenny Baylesss waved his hands and it was all over.

A once one-sided match favoring Ortiz turned into an upset.

Before the knockout, the judges scored the fight 59-55, 59-55, 58-56 all in favor of the challenger.

Ortiz was boxing splendidly in the first half of the fight.  Coming out aggressive, he landed beautiful left hooks on Wilder forcing him to retreat but little did the challenger know Wilder was just waiting for the perfect time to unleash his signature right hand.

It was that scenario again that pumped the crowd and certainly remembered by both fighters as well. The bell rang for the seventh round, the time Ortiz almost had Wilder in their first meeting and what a perfect way for Wilder to set it up than a stunning knockout in the same round of the rematch.

Wilder has now tied Muhammad Ali for 10th straight successive title defense while also protecting his unblemished record of 42 wins, 41 via knockout and one draw.

On the post-fight interview, Wilder told that another rematch with Tyson Fury is set to happen next year in February.

\”Next we have Tyson Fury, of course,\” he said.

\”Then, after that I want one champion, one face, one name,\” hinting a unification match with either the winner of Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.

Israel Adesanya eager for another match with Alex Pereria

The MMA world was shocked after Israel Adesanya suffered his first UFC knockout at the hand of his old kickboxing rival Alex Pereira with the former’s UFC Middleweight belt on the line.

Days after the devastating defeat, the Last Stylebender made it clear that he would seek another fight with the Brazilian fighter who had beaten him twice.

“I hope he’s the champion. I’m just saying, hypothetically, if he isn’t, I’ll still fight him.I’m crazy, bro. I can beat him,” Adesanya said at The MMA Hour.

Adesanya is hungry for revenge that it doesn’t matter whether Pereira is still the champion because his return to the Octagon will be against the current UFC middleweight champ.

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

It has been made known that FLOYD MAYWEATHER is formally in discussions to face
Manny Pacquiao again in Las Vegas the following year with his record on the line.
After waiting for the two superstar adversaries to come to terms for half a decade, the
American defeated Pacquiao in 2015 over the course of 12 rounds.
But after eight years, the two boxing greats plan to resume their fight for a sequel to
their £500 million box office hit.
The negotiations between the two camps are being facilitated by Global Titans, who are
marketing Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition fight in Dubai.
We’re already working on Floyd and Manny Pacquaio, their CEO Uday Singh told
SunSport.
And a huge fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might be announced
as early as December. A second match, not a demonstration.
After defeating former UFC champion Conor McGregor, 34, in 2017, Mayweather, 45,
decided to retire. Since then, he has fought four exhibition matches.
Additionally, he has never discussed going back to the ring to defend his pristine 50-0
record, especially versus Pacquiao, 43.
However, Mayweather’s perspective was altered after meeting Singh in Vegas prior to
his exhibition match with YouTuber Deji on November 13.
Since Manny Pacquiao was initially hesitant as well, Singh stated: “I’ve already had the
first meeting with Manny Pacquiao.
“It’s just egos, nothing else. But at the end of the day, Floyd’s a good guy, he’s a good
fighter.
“Once you’ve satisfied him with his purse, he’s happy to fight whoever. But it’s to his
interest as well, he said, ‘Why not? Let’s do it.’
“He hasn’t had a real proper fight since 2017, the last one was with Conor McGregor.”
Singh admitted he initially faced a fight to get Mayweather to agree to a pro bout
opposed to an exhibition, but won him over eventually.
He said: “Yeah, it was hard. But then again, at the end of the day he knows what people
want and he’s an entertainer.
