Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz are set for a hotly-anticipated world heavyweight title clash on November 4.

WBC heavyweight champion Wilder and Cuban contender Ortiz will both appear at a press conference in New York on Wednesday, where the promotion will begin for a bout which is slated for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Both men are unbeaten as professionals, Wilder 38-0 and Ortiz 27-0.

Wilder is rated the 8/11 favourite by Sky Bet to win the fight while you can back Ortiz at 11/10.

Wilder had been facing a mandatory defence of his title against Bermane Stiverne, but the press call suggests that obstacle has been removed and the veteran could instead appear on the undercard.
