Once again, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has found himself amidst some kind of controversy, despite not doing anything other than wanting to fight the sport’s best.

Wilder was scheduled for a Nov. 4 showdown vs. former interim WBA champion Luis Ortiz, but saw the fight scratched when the Cuban tested positive for banned diuretics chlorothiazide and hydrochlorothiazide, via a letter obtained from VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association) president Dr. Margaret Goodman. This marks the third time in the past 18 months that Wilder has seen an opponent test positive for a banned substance ahead of a potential fight.
