WBC world heavyweight champion Deonay Wilder will finally defend his world title against Luis Ortiz on March the 3rd, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Wilder, 32, will top the bill at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn in March and it's expected that the victor of the fight will take on Anthony Joshua.
