World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder announces that he`s signed a rematch against Cuban Luis “King Kong” Ortiz at a date and place to be announced soon.
In a message posted on his official twitter account, Wilder announced the signing of this fight, something that was already expected, because he announced that his mega fight against Joshua, should be made, but not until next year.
“To all my fans: I want to announce that Luis Ortiz and I have signed up for a rematch. The date and the site that will be announced shortly. All my controversial fights must be dealt with as soon as possible,” reiterated Wilder, who over a week ago knocked Dominic Breazeale out in the very first round.
The first battle between Wilder and Ortiz, in May of last year, ended in favor of the American by technical knockout in 10 rounds. But he himself was close to being knocked out before being able to rally in order to successfully defend his world crown.
