Wilder went on to rematch Bermane Stiverne knocking him out cold in round one.
Wilder's jab took a while to get going and with his famous right missing more than it hit, the NY crowd delivered the first serious blow of the night, with a chorus of boos as neither fighter went on the offensive.
Stats show that in a combined 67 fights (not counting the NC's for Ortiz), only four times was the final bell chimed. "We knew we had to wear him down", Wilder said.
"The Bronze Bomber" retained his WBC heavyweight championship in New York City on Saturday night but showed that he was willing to bide his time before unleashing his signature attack which is Wilder by name, wilder by nature. Ortiz is handed his first professional loss but looks like he recovered well, and although disappointed, not mentally defeated. He arrived at 28-0 with 24 KOs. Their initially scheduled bout was in November, but Ortiz twice tested positive for a banned substance, a diuretic.

Newcastle , meanwhile, are down in 15th on 29 points, just two clear of the relegation places. "They remember stats or trophies". He said: "Everybody knows it was a team that needed to improve to win the Premier League and we were improving later on".
"He hit me with flurry of punches but it wasn't hard", Wilder said of Ortiz. Conte says he has been working with Ortiz, and that the evidence supports Ortiz's claims of innocence. He'd spent the opening four rounds nearly exclusively conceding ground to a game opponent while failing to establish the jab or land any significant punches, a recipe that placed him at an early deficit on the scorecards and prompted audible jeers from the restless Brooklyn crowd.
Wilder did most of the damage on Saturday with his right hand, landing some heavy blows that would have knocked out lesser skilled opponents. It was over with 55 seconds left in the round. "He's not really looking at it as, O.K., I'm rewarding this guy for his malfeasance in the past", DiBella said, in the same interview.
Ortiz seemed to be finding a rhythm, circling to his right, safely away from Wilder's rocket back hand.
"In this sport, any punch can end a fight", said Ortiz.
There were 14,069 in the house, the second-largest crowd ever for boxing here, and the fans were booing during and after the third round over a lack of action.

Now, the White House is saying, well, we don't really know if the president's going to support that bill or not. Democratic lawmakers appealed to the president to use his political power to persuade his party to take action.
Ortiz would turn the moment back in his favor in Round 7 when he badly hurt Wilder with a left hand with 40 seconds remaining in the round. Wilder rocks Ortiz as Wilder starts landing his right to the head of Ortiz. He beat the count but went down again and referee David Fields waived it off.
"When I read them, I thought you can't be saying that".
I admire his footwork and balance, he can miss with the biggest bomb in his arsenal yet still stay positioned perfectly, poised and ready to throw more.
Wilder added: "A true champion always finds a way to come back". And I was able to do that.
