Deontay Wilder will defend his World Boxing Council heavyweight championship November 4 in NY against Bermane Stiverne, it was announced Wednesday.

Wilder and Stiverne have fought each other once, in 2015, when Wilder defeated Stiverne to win the WBC title.

World Boxing Council (WBC), considering the doping history of Ortiz, and the fact that the boxer was not notified of the Voluntary anti-doping Association in the use of a prohibited drug, canceled his fight with Wilder.

Stiverne, who was to have faced American Dominic Breazeale, won the WBC crown in 2014 by knocking out American Chris Arreola. Showtime will televise the contest.

Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs) has defended his WBC heavyweight title five times.

Ortiz failed a VADA urine drug test conducted on September 22 at his training camp in Miami.

Stiverne has been the only man to last the full distance with Wilder, but the champion is promising that he'll never see the final bell when they meet for a second time.

"Despite all of these obstacles that are thrown in my path, it still will not stop me from reaching my ultimate goal, which is to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world", Wilder said.

"In the first fight, I broke my hand in the third round, and I still dominated".

Stiverne, 39, remains the only fighter to go the distance with "The Bronze Bomber" in 38 bouts, but has fought just once since the reverse and has been out of the ring for nearly two years. He is 27-0 with 23 knockouts in his career.

"Deontay Wilder is a coward, he wanted to fight Luis Ortiz, because Ortiz is old and been inactive for a long time".

The Haitian-born heavyweight known as, B.WARE, remains the only fighter out of 38, not to be knocked out by Wilder. "We all know that Wilder dodged a bullet in the first fight, but not this time".
