Ortiz Tests Positive For Banned Substance

Deontay Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title defence against challenger Luis Ortiz, scheduled for November 4, is in danger of not happening after WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced that Ortiz has test positive for a banned substance.


As is the normal process both fighters are required to submit to random blood and urine test to VADA, the sport’s drug regulating organization.


The unbeatrn Ortiz is said to have tested positive for Chlorothiazide and Hydrochlorothiazide, which according to Team Ortiz, is a result of his hypertension pills. The substances are banned on the 2017 WADA Prohibited List under the “Diuretics and Masking Agents” category.
