DEONTAY WILDER will defend his WBC world title against Luis Ortiz for a second time this Saturday night.
The two faced off in March 2018, with Wilder coming out on top with a 10th-round TKO to keep hold of the belt – but the Bronze Bomber was ROCKED in the eighth round for the first time in his career.
Following a draw against Tyson Fury and victory over Dominic Breazeale, Wilder is back in the ring with the Cuban, defending not only his title but also a 42-fight unbeaten record.
The American is then expected to complete his tenth defence of the WBC heavyweight crown with a rematch against the Gypsy King set for 2020.
