On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman discusses the upcoming rematch between WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) and challenger Luis "King Kong" Ortiz (31-1, 2 ND, 26 KOs). This takes place Saturday, November 23, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It will be shown in the U.S. on Fox pay-per-view and in the U.K. on Sky Sports.
Their first fight took place March 3, 2018, in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. In what had been an exciting and close fight, Wilder dropped Ortiz twice in the tenth round to earn a TKO win and retain his belt.
Both fighters had been undefeated at the time of their first fight, so the question remains whether or not Ortiz can determine why he lost and make adjustments. Their first fight is analyzed, including the role of Ortiz's conditioning, as he faded as that fight went on. The factors that may, or may not, be different in the rematch are discussed here, and much more.
