Ortiz after he second defeat didn’t take anything away from the Champion but had a few things to says concerning the count out by the referee. He believes, the referee counted him out so quickly and that, he was still able to continue.

“This is boxing,” said Ortiz. “I said that one of us was going to get knocked out and it wasn’t going to go 12 rounds. I was clear headed when I hit the canvas. When I heard the referee say seven I was trying to get up, but I guess the count went a little quicker than I thought. 

“This was a great fight and I thought I was clearly winning. I got caught with a big shot and I have to give Deontay Wilder a lot of credit. I knew my movement was giving him problems. I landed some big shots and I thought I had him hurt. I thought I was up by the count and could have continued.

Despite the loss, Ortiz is happy with his performance and tips himself to beat anyone in the division, nurturing intentions of working his way into a title fight in the future

“Deontay showed great will and I’m not ashamed with my performance. I know I can beat anyone in the heavyweight division. My career is not over. I’m going to work my way back into a big fight.”
