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.
