Last night, Showtime Championship Boxing was a thriller, as Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO’s) somehow was able to defeat Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KO’s), in what was surely the toughest fight of his entire career.  Jose Uzcategui (27-2, 23 KO’s) also defeated Andre Dirrell (26-3, 16 KO’s) in their rematch of their highly controversial first fight.  Uzcategui was winning their first fight on all 3 scorecards before he got questionably disqualified, and he picked up right where he left off.  He was the sharper fighter in this one, and it showed a lot.  Dirrell did not look prepared at all, and kind of looked like a washed up fighter, and a former shell of himself.  the first 3 rounds were competitive, and then it was all down hill for Dirrell.  By the 5th round, Dirrell became Uzcategui’s punching bag, and it did not look like the fight would go the distance.  Uzcategui was using every punch in the book, and hitting Dirrell at will.  Dirrell would not come out of the corner for the 9th round, and Uzcategui gets the TKO victory.

The main event was a banger, and surprisingly very reminiscent to the Anthony Joshua VS Wladimir Klitschko fight.  A very back and forth affair.  Luis Ortiz looked strong in the beginning, winning each of the first 4 rounds.  Ortiz was out boxing Wilder in those rounds, as Wilder looked dumb founded about how to approach him.  Ortiz’s smart jab was finding a home on Wilder’s face, which everyone thought would be the other way around.  Wilder has the best and longest babe of any current Heavyweight, and through the first 4 rounds, he simply could not land it.  Luis Ortiz display superb defense due to his amateur pedigree, and Wilder seemed baffled.

Things would drastically change in the 5th round however.  After winning most of the 5th round, Ortiz got nailed with a Wilder right hand that stumbled him, and the next punch would put him down.  Ortiz was saved by the bell however, as the knock down came with only 10 seconds left in the fifth.  Ortiz would recover in the 6th round, but Wilder would land a few more right hands throughout the round.  They would have a few more exchanges in a very interesting 6th round that Wilder squeezed out and won.

The mayhem would really start at the end of the 7th round.  Ortiz landed a clean monster left hook right on Wilder’s jaw which put him on dream street.  Ortiz landed a few more punches, including a huge left hand which looked like it would put Wilder down.  Wilder was completely out of it, but some how made it out of the 7th.  Wilder would come out in the 8th round still on dream street, and Ortiz was back on the attack trying to finish the fight.  Wilder would get lucky and make it through the 8th, as it seemed that Ortiz punched himself out a bit in the second half of the round.

The 9th round was pretty uneventful, as Ortiz seemed to has tired a lot, and Wilder was still recovering from that devastating 7th round, in which he almost lost the fight.  That would all change in the 10th however.  Wilder landed a huge right hand half way through the round, which was one of the loudest punches I have ever heard, and it wobbled Ortiz.  Ortiz was shoved down and it was ruled a slip, but he was clearly hurt.  Wilder came out of the corner throwing combinations, and nailed Ortiz with another right that put him down again.  Ortiz would barely beat the count, but continue on.  Wilder, knowing he had his man hurt, came out landing 2 clean right hands, and a huge right uppercut, which would put Ortiz down for good.  Deontay Wilder survives in dramatic fashion, and remains the unedited WBC World Heavyweight champion.

Last night on Premier Boxing Champions, Victor Ortiz (32-6-3, 25 KO’s) and Devon Alexander (27-4-1, 14 KO’s) some how fought to a draw, even though Devon Alexander clearly won the fight.  I guess the only thing you can give in favor of Ortiz was that he threw more punches in the fight, but not by much.  Alexander was clearly the sharper, more accurate, and more effective puncher in the fight.  The fight was a good one, but this isn’t one of those fights that you try to build up a rematch.  It was a great battle, but no one will be clawing at the chance to see these two go at it again.  So why the bogus scoring?

From the opening bell, Ortiz was visibly slower and less effective then Alexander.  The first two rounds were close, but Alexander completely took over the middle rounds.  He was countering effectively, and landing a lot more then Ortiz.  Ortiz was looking very fatigued by the 9th round.  Ortiz came with one last flurry in the 12th round, and apparently it was enough for a draw on 2 scorecards and a win on the third.  Judges Glen Crocker and Levi Martinez both scored the fight 114-114, and judge Don Griffin scored it 115-113 for Ortiz.  I scored the fight 116-112 in favor of Devon Alexander, which was the score that most unofficial cards read after 12 rounds.  Alexander landed 155 of 485 (32%) punches, while Ortiz landed 137 of 550 (25%) punches.
