Wilder-Ortiz 2: Live coverage NOW!


  • Vito Mielnicki Jr TKO-2 Marklin Bailey (2:31)
  • Dustin Long KO-4 Marsellos Wilder (1:51)
  • Viktor Slavinskyi UD-6 Rigoberto Hermosillo (58-56, 59-55, 60-54)

Tonight in the main event on FOX pay-per-view, Deontay Wilder defends his WBC heavyweight title in a rematch with Luis Ortiz, a fight that has big money implications not just tonight, but going forward in boxing’s glamour division.

We’ll be here with live results updates starting at 7 pm ET for the FS2 prelims, and 9 pm ET for the PPV main card. There will be live, round-by-round updates for the Wilder-Ortiz main event.

Wilder, 34, and Ortiz, 40 or so, met in March 2018 in a wild brawl on Showtime, with Wilder retaining his belt via 10th round stoppage, but not without some scary moments on his side. Both are big punchers, so it’s not expected they’ll go the distance tonight either.

Two more world titles are on the line on the pay-per-view. Leo Santa Cruz will face Miguel Flores for the vacant WBA “super world” super featherweight title, and Brandon Figueroa will defend the WBA “world” super bantamweight title against Julio Ceja. Super featherweights Leduan Barthelemy and Eduardo Ramirez will meet in the PPV opener in another rematch. That fight was bumped from the FS2 prelims after the Nery-Rodriguez cancellation.

Here’s the full lineup:
