It would appear that two unbeaten heavyweights, at the second time of asking, are set to go head-to-head in the ring.

Deontay Wilder was supposed to have defended his WBC world heavyweight crown against Luis Ortiz back in November 2017, but the fight was called off after Ortiz failed a routine drugs test.

For his misdemeanour, Ortiz was fined $25,000 but wasn?t, surprisingly, banned from the sport with the WBC accepting he had taken the drugs t combat high blood pressure.

After the original fight was postponed, Wilder faced another American, Bermane Stiverne, knocking the challenger out in the first round to extend his unbeaten professional record to 39 wins, with 38 of those coming by way of knockout.

The fight, at the second time of asking, will take place at the Barclays Centre, in New York, on 3 March.

Can Ortiz, who is unbeaten in 28 fights, be the one to derail the wild-punching champion?
