Wilder set to defend against Ortiz

Wilder set to defend against Ortiz

Wilder (39-0) was mooted as the next opponent for IBF and WBA belt-holder Anthony Joshua in a unification bout, but the Briton is closing in on a clash with WBO champion Joseph Parker.

Before the first scheduled bout, Ortiz was found to have taken two banned diuretics that are often used as masking agents for steroids.

The event is part of Premier Boxing Champions.

In taking the fight with fellow unbeaten fighter Ortiz, Wilder has accepted what is widely considered his greatest test yet.

The fact that Ortiz, 38, tested positive for steroids in 2014 left many unwilling to give him the benefit of the doubt. It was Ortiz's second failed drug test in three years.

China's trade with N. Korea plunges due to United Nations sanctions
In 2017 as a whole, China's overall trade with North Korea declined by more than 10 percent to about $5 billion, as U.S. President Donald Trump secured Beijing's backing for four escalating rounds of sanctions.

When their November fight was canceled, Wilder instead faced late replacement and mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne in a rematch and knocked him out in the first round, fulfilling his promise to take out his anger at Ortiz on Stiverne.

After returning with a second-round knockout of Daniel Martz in December, the Cuban has secured a long-awaited meeting with Wilder in NY. But the WBC ruled in December that he acted in good faith and proved his innocence. "I want Joshua. Joshua come and see me baby".

"I'm always a man of my word". This time, no excuses.

Wilder, aiming to successfully defend his title for a seventh time, was initially due to face Ortiz towards the end of previous year.
