The always exciting “Bronze Bomber” Deontay Wilder returns to Las Vegas for his 10th defense of the WBC heavyweight title in a rematch with Luis “King Kong” Ortiz on Saturday night.
Wilder who has knocked out 40 of his 41 career opponents, including Ortiz, is a heavy favorite to repeat that performance with -300 odds to win by KO/TKO.
Ortiz, whose only career loss came against Wilder, turned 40 this year, but is still very much a threat to put nearly any fighter on the mat with one punch. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook has Ortiz listed as +550 to win by KO and as of Friday, no one had taken the bait per John Murray.
