Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz will answer a ton of questions in showdown for heavyweight supremacy

Deontay Wilder was out on his feet.

"A true champion always finds a way to come back and that's what I did tonight", Wilder said.

The sensational fight saw Wilder struggle in the opening rounds, dropping points to his Cuban opponent. According to CompuBox, Wilder landed 98 of 346 total punches (28 percent) while Ortiz landed 87 of 363 (24 percent).

At the end of the day, Wilder got the job done.

He remained in orbit for much of the eighth, too, but was gifted an extra 20-odd seconds' recovery time at its advent due to an untied lace.

Then, in the seventh, Wilder was dazed and confused by Ortiz's assault.

Wilder is looking at a matchup with fellow champion Joshua - as soon as possible.

It is also capable of carrying a 100-megaton nuclear warhead, which Putin said could target coastal targets and warships. Anti-nuclear everything is now a core value of the Democrat Party base that has moved far to the Left.

To the critics, Wilder (39-0, 38 knockouts) is considered a hype job.

Regardless of who prevails in Wales, though, Wilder feels it is he who is the king of the top weight class after coming through the sternest test of his career.

A exhausted Wilder was able to move his way through the eighth round following a seventh round in which Ortiz badly hurt him. He got up. But then Wilder finished him with a right uppercut.

"That don't mean nothing", Wilder said. They don't particularly include Luis Ortiz, against whom Wilder defends his WBC heavyweight title on Saturday night.

Wilder did most of the damage Saturday with his right hand, landing some heavy blows that would have knocked out lesser skilled opponents.

Wilder's last defense was a joke. Heck, even in the next round Wilder was a bit off and Ortiz didn't finish it. It was a quiet round but a round which Ortiz had the upper hand. DiBella's client is Deontay Wilder, the best heavyweight boxer in America: he is thirty-two years old and has thirty-nine fights and thirty-nine wins, all but one of which have come by knockout.

Egypt, Saudi join hands to face divisive regional interventions
The Saudi prince is expected to sign a number of agreements, Saudi state television said without giving further details. Egypt's parliament backed the deal in June, and President Abdel-Fattah Sisi ratified it one week later.

He looked on the brink of being knocked out after being caught by a right-left combo as he was penned against the ropes. Ortiz was down in all fours after the punishment but managed to get up to his feet to beat the count.

Wilder began using his jab early in the second round. He follows it with a bomb that sends Ortiz crashing to the canvas.

"When he leaves tonight he can go with his head held up high".

"This fight is not only important for my family, but for Cuban boxing history", said Ortiz.

"Make no mistake, I was with Anthony Joshua this morning, he wants to fight Deontay Wilder". Ortiz countered with a left hand that made Wilder retreat. Ortiz dropped out of the bout when he tested positive for performance enhancers, and Bermane Stiverne stepped in. Ortiz has some defenders, including Victor Conte, the convicted steroids dealer who now proffers himself as an anti-doping advocate.

Despite the puzzling revelation he was ahead 85-84 on the judges' scorecards entering the 10th, there was real reason to believe he was going to lose the fight.
