  • Comments Thread For: Wilder: I Wasn't Hurt; Didn't Think Ref Would Stop Fight in 7th

    NEW YORK Deontay Wilder wasn't worried referee David Fields would stop his fight against Luis Ortiz when Wilder was on the verge of getting knocked out in the seventh round. Fields is generally regarded as one of boxing's better referees and tends to let boxers fight, hold and/move their way out of trouble. That's what happened after Ortiz buzzed Wilder with a right hook that connected with 43 seconds to go in the seventh round and tried his best to finish off the undefeated knockout artist.

    I know some of those punches hurt Ortiz is a big dude ain't no way he wasn't hurt. But props to Wilder for not folding, he could have easily bowed out. He showed the heart of a champ.

      Besides being the "baddest mofo on the planet", Dante is a tremendous actor. His performance of a "fighter on queer street" was worthy of an Oscar.

        Wilder was definitely hurt, but he showed very good defence to avoid getting hit with anything really significant whilst he was hurt.

          He was almost out of there and MAYBE if it weren't for the extra time he got prior to round 8 (while doctor was "evaluating" him), things MAY have been different. We'll never know but now bring on Wilder vs AJ!!!

            He wasn’t hurt because his brain was disconnected from his body.
            It took him a little bit to get Right.
            He looked like he was on puppet strings until a minute et and a half went by in the 8th round.
            Bit the whole while he was bussed he was able to clinch, evade, and punch enough to keep Ortiz off him.

              Wilder's tenacity won him the fight.
              I want to hear the first boxer to call him out after this massive victory.

                Holyfield said the same thing after the fight.

                    I thought the talk of wilder about to be stopped confusing. He wasnít about to be stopped. He didnít look hurt to me. Tired maybe.
                    You donít need to be punching all the time. You can take a breather. Didnít floyd not punch a lot of the time..? Was he about to be stopped defending for his life while his opponent went ape s*it on him?
