Deontay Wilder to defend WBC title against Luis Ortiz

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will defend his title against Luis Ortiz on Saturday, 3 March at the Barclays Center in NY.

Ortiz is expected to be the final hurdle between Wilder and a shot at unbeaten Englishman Anthony Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight championships.

He will be making the sixth defence of his title having in November stopped Bermane Stiverne when a match-up with Ortiz was cancelled after the Cuban, 38, tested positive for banned substances in a drugs test.

American Wilder has won all 39 of his professional fights, all but one inside the distance.

It was unclear why the four Republicans were there, and the session did not produce the results the two senators were hoping for. Republican lawmakers who were in the Thursday meeting generally sidestepped questions about precisely what Trump said.

"We are thrilled to welcome the heavyweight champ back to Barclays Centre", said Brett Yormark, chief executive of Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment.

The victor of the contest could very well land themselves an opportunity against the victor of Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker in a contest for all the belts available in the heavyweight division, with the proposed clash anticipated set for the March 31st in Cardiff. Listen mate. I know I am the best.

After stopping Stiverne in November, Wilder called out Joshua, saying, "I been waiting on that boy for a long time now". Are you up for the test?
