Main event: Midnight ET (approximate)
Deontay Wilder puts his WBC heavyweight on the line against Luis Ortiz in a rematch he dare not lose.
A date is already set for The Bronze Bomber’s second clash with Tyson Fury with the two scheduled to meet on 22 February in a rematch of last year’s thrilling draw in Los Angeles.
Wilder announced in May he planned to deal with all of his ‘controversial’ fights – that would also include Ortiz, who pushed the American all the way in their March 2018 bout in New York.
For the first time in his career, Wilder was rocked in the boxing ring as Ortiz went blow-for-blow with him, leaving him hanging on for dear life as the heavy-handed Cuban came within seconds of ending his reign as WBC king before he was saved by the bell.
Wilder fought back and ended the contest with another devastating finish in the 10th round.
