However, the fight could take place September 28 at the MGM in Las Vegas, according to Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix.
The two first fought in March of 2018. That fight went 10 rounds, with Wilder coming out on top after knocking out Ortiz.
While a rematch could result in yet another entertaining fight, boxing fans wanted Wilder to take on either Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua. If Wilder takes on Ortiz in late September, any possible fight with Fury or Joshua could be pushed to 2020.
