Deontay Wilder to defend title against Luis Ortiz in March

Deontay Wilder to defend title against Luis Ortiz in March

The American, a long-term target of IBF and WBA champion Anthony Joshua, has, in Ortiz, accepted what is widely considered his greatest test yet.

The event is part of Premier Boxing Champions. The failed test could've been avoided had Ortiz advised VADA he was taking it.

When the original fight with 38-year-old Ortiz was postponed, Wilder then defended his WBC title against fellow American Bermane Stirmane and won with a first-round knockout.

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. But the WBC ruled in December that he acted in good faith and proved his innocence.

The company confirmed the closings in a statement on Twitter, and the Morrisville location was no longer listed on its website. There are five Walmart stores in the Lansing region: in Lansing Township, Delta Township, Okemos, St.

After Ortiz's victory, Wilder entered the ring and faced off with him in a colorful exchange that was captured on the FS1 telecast.

"Stay by the phone baby, I've been wanting to", Wilder told Ortiz after the fight. So I'm going to bless you again with a second opportunity. This time, no excuses.

Wilder returns to Barclays Center after recently scoring a sensational first-round knockout of Bermane Stiverne on November 4th, a year ago and previously delivering a highlight reel knockout of Artur Szpilka in January 2016.

Wilder, 32, will top the bill at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn in March and it's expected that the victor of the fight will take on Anthony Joshua.
