FIGHT SPORTS’ New York-based parent company CSI Sports has agreed to a deal to acquire rights to the Deontay Wilder vs. Luis Ortiz WBC Heavyweight World Championship Live event, taking place March 3rd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The deal covers rights in over 50 countries, including in Japan, Spain, Germany, Belgium, India, Singapore, and throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
Wilder, 39-0 with 38 knockouts, looks to defend his title for the 7th time since claiming the belt in a unanimous decision victory over Bermane Stiverne in January of 2015 – the only fight to go the distance in Wilder’s spectacular career thus far. He faces fellow undefeated heavyweight Luis Ortiz, who has 28 wins and 24 knockouts against 0 defeats.
FIGHT SPORTS will broadcast this event Live as part of a doubleheader on March 3rd, airing alongside HBO’s Championship Boxing featuring Sergey Kovalev defending his WBO Light Heavyweight World Championship against Igor Mikhalkin from the Madison Square Garden Theatre in New York City.
