WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will fight Cuba’s Luis Ortiz on November 23 in Las Vegas.

It will be a rematch of their thrilling clash last year. Then Ortiz had Wilder in real trouble before the American powered back into the contest to stop the Cuban and retain his championship.

It is however a dangerous fight to take, when Wilder had been on course for a lucrative rematch with Tyson Fury.
