The two fighters who are on Anthony Joshua’s hit list will fight each other first before having a go at the number one heavyweight champion.
Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports reports that Luis Ortiz will challenge Deontay Wilder for the WBC World heavyweight championship belt on November 4th at the Barclays Center in New York.
“Multiple sources close to both Wilder and Ortiz confirmed the match to Yahoo Sports. Wilder promoter Lou DiBella would not confirm the bout, but he did not deny it. ‘Wait until you see what Deontay is up to,’ said DiBella, who according to the New York State Athletic Commission’s schedule has reserved Nov. 4 at the Barclays Center,” writes Iole.
