Luis Ortiz Tests Positive Before Wilder Fight!

Luis Ortiz has failed a drug test, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed Friday.

Ortiz tested positive for banned substances in a test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association. Ortiz was scheduled to fight Deontay Wilder in a heavyweight title fight on Nov. 4, but promoter Lou DiBella told ESPN’s Dan Rafael that the fight will likely be canceled.

This is the second time that Ortiz has failed a drug test. In 2014, after scoring a first-round knockout on Lateef Kayode, Ortiz tested positive for steroids and was suspended for eight months, and that fight was ruled a no-decision.
