WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder steps foot in the ring again tonight as he rematches with Luis Ortiz with the WBC heavyweight belt on the line.
Wilder and Ortiz originally fought in February 2018. Wilder won the fight in a spectacular 10th round knockout. Ortiz was winning the boxing bout on the judges score cards before being done in by “The Bronze Bomber.”
Bronze Bomber has gone on to knock out Dominic Breazeale and fight to an epic draw with lineal champion, Tyson Fury.
Luis Ortiz who is 31-1 with 26 knockouts, suffered his lone loss to Wilder. He’s won three fights since then and looks to dethrone the heavyweight champion.
Also on the card is a battle for the WBA World Super Bantamweight title between interim champ Brandon Figueroa (20-0 15 KOs) and Julio Ceja (32-4 28 KOs).
A third title is on the line as Leo Santa Cruz (36-1-1 19 KOs) takes on Miguel Flores (24-2 12 KOs). The two are battling for the vacant WBA Super World Super Bantamweight title.
