VIDEO: Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz First Fight Highlights Ahead of Heavyweight Championship Rematch

Saturday will bring us one of the best heavyweight fights we've seen in the last few years, as Deontay Wilder will look to stay on top of the division as he gets ready for a rematch with Luis Ortiz, who he took down in the tenth round in their first bout. The highlights of that fight show two powerful punchers at the very top of their game trading haymakers, AKA a boxing fan's dream.

Wilder might have come out on top last year, but Ortiz has completely revamped his conditioning, meaning the former may have to work a little harder to add to his fight resume this time around. The winner all but locks up a fight with either Andy Ruiz, Anthony Joshua, or Tyson Fury in the near future.

Wilder-Ortiz isn't getting nearly the hype it should, as we could see either a new champ rise amongst the heavyweights or one of the best ever maintain his title as the best in the division.
