WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder to face unbeaten Luis Ortiz

WBC heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder is set to meet unbeaten Luis Ortiz on March 3 at the Barclays Center in New York.

Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) is coming off a first-round knockout of Bermane Stiverne in November. He and Ortiz were initially supposed to fight on that card, but the Cuban was scratched because of a positive drug test.

This will be Wilder's seventh title defence. Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) is being billed as his toughest opponent.

Wilder has had impressive wins at at the US venue in the NYC borough of Brooklyn, including the knockout of Stiverne and a 2016 knockout of Artur Szpilka.

Before the first scheduled bout, Ortiz was found to have taken two banned diuretics that are often used as masking agents for steroids.
Some awesome fights ahead. Who you guys got for whyte vs brown
And how interesting is ortiz vs wilder, dam some good fights happening
Bopman, I got Whyte in a slugfest. Will be more interesting than AJ/Parker.
Whyte v Brown will be a fight of the century or and absolute bour. I have Browne going in and sticking to his jab plan like he did against chagev. I think whyte will get wild again and may get clipped. Still its 50/50 fight which makes it so cool.
I hope browne wins i find whyte entertaining in press conferrnces but boring in the ring
Whyte wasn't boring with Chisora, which is what I think this fight will be about.
