WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder continued his title reign with a one-punch knockout victory over Luis Ortiz in the seventh round of their rematch Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Wilder made his 10th consecutive successful title defence, tying him with Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Larry Holmes, Tommy Burns and Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko as the only heavyweight champions to achieve that feat.

In a rematch of their epic 2018 fight that saw Wilder rally back from nearly being stopped to knock out Ortiz in round 10, the fight again saw both men hold the momentum of the fight at different times.
