Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne will face off for the WBC heavyweight title this weekend.
Wilder had been due to face unbeaten Luis Ortiz but the Cuban failed a drugs test earlier last month and the WBC were forced to withdraw their sanction of the fight.
Wilder was then ordered to fight his mandatory challenger Stiverne instead, a bout that represents a rematch of Wilder’s first title shot two years ago.
The change in opponent did not necessitate a change in date with Stiverne happy to step up at just a month’s notice.
The pair will get in the ring this Sunday.
