Ortiz, 40, made it to his feet but could not beat the 10 count and was left with a look of shock on his face as Wilder had barely thrown a combination or landed a punch of significance, BBC reports.

The defeated Cuban was left beating the ropes with his fists in frustration after bamboozling Wilder with feints and footwork, while boxing at the kind of timid pace he looked capable of maintaining.

He found repeated joy from his tricky southpaw stance with the left hand and after landing repeatedly on Wilder in the fourth, the champion beat his chest with both hands as he clearly knew he was second best.
