Deontay Wilder willing to fight Ortiz even if he tests positive for Performance Enhancing Drugs


Deontay Wilder isn't just the current WBC heavyweight world champion, but he's a man with something to prove to the world of boxing. The fighting pride of the state of Alabama, Wilder boasts a perfect record of 38-0 with only one opponent escaping a knockout. Since early 2015, Wilder has defended the title five times successfully. Scheduled for his sixth title defense against the Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz on November 4th. But on the road to that scheduled bout, Ortiz failed a drug test prior to a win over Kayoda. The winner of the Wilder/Ortiz match would be given a unification fight against the WBA and IBF champion Anthony Joshua sometime in 2018. Wilder has stated that regardless to positive test results with Ortiz, he is willing to go forward and fight the Cuban challenger no matter the outcome. Although the ultimate decision of the scheduled fight is in the hands of the WBC, Wilder stands firm on his willingness to move forward with the fight.
