World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will fight dangerous Cuban “King Kong” Ortiz on Nov. 4th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn , NY.

Representatives of Wilder (38-0, 37 KO’s) and Ortiz’s (27-0, 23 KO’s, 2 NC) have been working to finalize the deal for two months.

Wilder’s fight against Ortiz takes place as former WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne has reached an agreement to let these fighters face each other.

Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs), born in Haiti and resident of Quebec, will face American Dominic Breazeale (18-1, 16 KOs) as part of the same card.
