Date set for Wilder-Ortiz

Official Deontay Wilder to defend WBC title against Luis Ortiz Deontay Wilder will defend his WBC title in March
Conrad Doyle | 13 January, 2018, 04:24

No boxer has simultaneously held the WBC, IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight belts, and Wilder is a future target for Joshua.

Before the first scheduled bout, Ortiz was found to have taken two banned diuretics that are often used as masking agents for steroids.

Showtime will produce the event and will televise it either on Showtime or on sister network CBS. The failed test could've been avoided had Ortiz advised VADA he was taking it.

Wilder, 32, was then present when Ortiz stopped the lightly-regarded Daniel Martz in December, and that night told him: "I've been wanting you".

"The Bronze Bomber" will instead face Ortiz (28-0, 24KOs), who botched his initial shot at Wilder and the green strap on 4 November of past year when he failed a drugs test and was replaced by Bermane Stiverne. We must fight each other.

After Ortiz's victory, Wilder entered the ring and faced off with him in a colorful exchange that was captured on the FS1 telecast. Be ready, I don't want no excuses. I blessed you with this opportunity the first time and what did you do?

The move comes amid reports that rival unbeaten champions Anthony Joshua of Britain and Joseph Parker of New Zealand are in final talks to fight in March and could set the stage for the winners to meet for an undisputed crown later this year.
