Deontay Wilder to defend his title against unbeaten contender Luis Ortiz

Deontay Wilder puts WBC heavyweight title on the line against unbeaten Luis Ortiz

Deontay Wilder is looking to defend the title for the seventh time. AP

Ortiz was fined $25,000 (£18,497) but not banned from the sport as the World Boxing Council said the Cuban took the drugs for high blood pressure. It was Ortiz's second failed drug test in three years.

Ortiz returned on December 8 for a second-round knockout of Daniel Martz in a tune-up fight and then went nose to nose with Wilder, who was at the fight, in the ring afterward. Be ready, I don't want no excuses. You messed this up. So I'm going to bless you again with a second opportunity.

Donald Trump's lawyer files lawsuit against BuzzFeed for publishing Russia dossier
When pressed by the committee, Simpson's lawyer Joshua Levy suggested it would be unsafe to do so. The release of the transcript does not, however, break any laws, as Trump suggests it might.

Anthony Joshua's heavyweight rival will top the bill at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, making the seventh defence of the coveted WBC title he won back in January 2015. Ortiz is risky and talented enough to not only threaten Wilder's hope of making a monster purse against Joshua, but a victory over him could silence the many critics who point to the lack of quality opposition on Wilder's resume.

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

She says the man returned a short time later and continued to cut her hijab from behind before he smiled and ran away. Toronto Police say they don't yet know whether to call this a hate crime.

Wilder, whose right hand might be the sport's most unsafe weapon, has made six defenses of the title he won by outpointing Stiverne in 2015.
