Boxing’s longest-reigning heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber’’ Wilder will take on his most dangerous challenger to date when he defends his WBC title in a rematch against once-beaten Cuban slugger Luis “King Kong’’ Ortiz in the main event of the FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View Saturday, Nov. 23 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The finger pointing is endless as to who is to blame for the heavyweight unification bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder not being made in 2018.
