Watch: Deontay Wilder KO's Luis Ortiz In Thrilling 10th Round Finish
By PJ Browne Updated

Deontay Wilder overcame the biggest test of his career on Saturday night, defeating Luis Ortiz to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

It took ten rounds for Wilder to claim victory. For much of the fight, it appeared as though that might not be the case.

After 2:05 of the tenth, Wilder landed a decisive uppercut on Ortiz which saw the referee call a halt.

Going into that round, Wilder had probably been down on points. In fact, the champion had been lucky to reach the bell in the seventh.

Wilder is now 40-0 in his career with 39 of those wins coming via KO.

Here that's uppercut at close quarters.

Showtime Boxing have also released some thrilling ringside footage of the finish.
