World heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder defends his WBC title in a rematch against Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas this weekend. 

The undefeated American came within seconds of being stopped by the Cuban veteran in the pair’s first bout before rallying to win via TKO.

Wilder has since knocked out Dominic Breazeale and then retained his belt in a controversial draw against Tyson Fury. 

If Wilder defeats Ortiz, he’s expected to rematch Fury in February.
