Stiverne (25-2, 21 KOs) was schedule to face Dominic Breazeale (18-1, 16 KOs) , on the Wilder-Ortiz undercard but will now have a shot at revenge, he faces the one who highly dominated him in January 2015 to capture the WBC title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Bermane Stiverne (25-2, 21 KOs) has been on a two year lay off since his decision Win over Derric Rossy back in Nov. 2015 and will be thankful to the WBC for the surprise mandatory position he acquired earlier this year.

For Luis Ortiz, this compiles on his already heavy cases of failed tests and Banned substances, testing positive to Nandrolone in 2014, after a first round knockout of Lateef Kayode in Las Vegas and has only been clean for just six fights since that time.
