Deontay Wilder to face Luis Ortiz March 3 in Brooklyn


Heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder is giving Luis "King Kong" Ortiz another chance. The card, presented by Premier Boxing Champions, will be produced by Showtime and could end up airing on CBS.

Ortiz tested positive for chlorothiazide and hydrochlorothiazide, known to be masking agents for performance-enhancing drugs, in a random urine test conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association as part of the WBC's Clean Boxing Program. It was Ortiz's second failed drug test in three years. Ortiz returned to the ring in Miami Dec. 2, knocking out Daniel Martz in the second round.

"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. So for the best to prove they're the best, the best must fight each other. "I blessed you with the opportunity and you messed it up".

Should Wilder, 32, be victorious, the fight could serve as the final appetizer toward a much-anticipated heavyweight unification bout against England's Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs), who has quickly grown to become the biggest star in the sport.

Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) is coming off a first-round knockout of Bermane Stiverne in November.
