Any Immediate thoughts of seeing a contest between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua will need to be put on the back burner after the American today announced that he will face Luis Ortiz next.
In a rematch from March 2010 that witnessed Wilder score a 10th round knockout over the Cuba, both men have agreed to the rematch with a date and venue still to be ironed out but reports indicate that it could land on September 7th or 28th in Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
