Deontay Wilder to fight Bermane Stiverne Nov. 4 after WBC withdraws sanction for Luis Ortiz bout....

Deontay Wilder will defend his World Boxing Council heavyweight championship Nov. 4 in New York against Bermane Stiverne, it was announced Wednesday.... Stiverne is a replacement for Luis Ortiz, who was forced to drop out after he failed a drug test and forced the WBC to remove its sanction of the fight. Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 knockouts) had been scheduled to fight on the Wilder-Ortiz undercard next month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Wilder, the 31-year-old Tuscaloosa native, won his heavyweight title by beating Stiverne in a 12-round unanimous decision on Jan. 17, 2015 in Las Vegas. It was the only career non-knockout for Wilder, who is 38-0 with 37 KOs. Ortiz, a 38-year-old Cuban, was found to have used chlorothiazide and hydrochlorothiazide, both banned substances that are often used to mask performance-enhancing drug use. He is 27-0 with 23 knockouts in his career. Wilder last fought Feb. 25, when he retained his WBC belt with a fifth-round TKO of Gerald Washington in Birmingham. Stiverne is rated the No. 1 title contender by the WBC, but had delayed his mandatory bout with Wilder for a fee so that Wilder could fight Ortiz first.
