    FOX’s doubleheader will be off the air October 14 before Showtime’s tripleheader begins.

    The October 14 card is expected to be the first of two within a three-week span at Barclays Center.

    Another show is tentatively scheduled to take place there November 4. Deontay Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs), of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, likely will make an optional defense of his WBC heavyweight title against Cuban southpaw Luis Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs, 2 NC) in the main event that night, but a Wilder-Ortiz deal had not been finalized as of Wednesday morning.

    EDIT

    Deontay Wilder is finally set to secure the kind of tough opponent he’s long sought.

    The WBC heavyweight titleholder is slated to meet top contender Luis Ortiz on November 4 in Brooklyn, New York, on Showtime, sources told RingTV.com.

    A major roadblock was finally cleared this week when WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman mediated over talks between Wilder promoter Lou DiBella and Stiverne promoter Don King, a source told RingTV.com.

    The sides came to a resolution, with Stiverne receiving step-aside money to allow Wilder to go ahead with the Ortiz bout; the agreement calls for Stiverne to fight on the televised undercard against a legit opponent, and should he win, he’ll face the WBC champion next, likely in early 2018.

    Stiverne was named the WBC’s No. 1 contender in January after his interim title fight against Alexander Povetkin was scrapped when the Russian tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

    Povetkin, of course, also failed a PED test in the summer of 2016, which canceled a planned fight against Wilder, in what would have been the American’s first big step-up in class.

    No television network is interested in a Wilder-Stiverne rematch, though. After all, Wilder dominated Stiverne in their January 2015 meeting, and there’s no real need for a second bout.

    In an attempt to persuade Stiverne to allow Wilder-Ortiz to take place, the Haiti native was offered a mid six-figure payday as a step-aside fee, according to sources.

    However, he refused the offer, instead opting to fight Wilder in the rematch immediately. Stiverne hired attorney Josh Dubin, the longtime lawyer for Andre Ward and Lennox Lewis, to ensure that happens.

    Wilder (38-0, 37 knockouts) has made five defenses of the heavyweight strap he won from Stiverne. Most recently, he stopped Gerald Washington in five rounds in February.

    Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs) has been calling for — and deserving of — a title shot since he blasted out Bryant Jennings in December 2015. But the 38-year-old — a Cuban puncher who can box and move, who brings tremendous risk and delivers little reward — has been eluded by the top fighters.

    Wilder is willing to step up to the plate. Now, the fight is very close to being delivered.

    God I hope so. 2017 has been awesome and this would be a really good fight for the heavyweight division. No one wants to see Stiverne again, he sucks

    Okay wtf is going on with 2017? What is this Zionist agenda? Someone upstairs seems to be pushing for all these great match ups. Meanwhile UFC taken some major hits with Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones and Anderson Silva all out.

    I think there was just so many long put off fights from previous years that they all were forced to happen now in the same year. Hopefully this continues into next year as well.

    The great fights keep rolling in. Although it sucks that the winner will likely have to fight Stiverne after. I wonder who he will have to fight. Hopefully someone good but it will probably be Kownacki.

    Yeah it's good news that we get Ortiz vs Wilder but a real shame that Stiverne will likely get a shot at the winner because I would have hoped that it would be the winner of Ortiz Wilder to fight Joshua or Pulev. Now we'll have to wait at least one fight longer.

    Stiverne could very well be getting suspended for missing a drug test.

    You think they wouldn't have had to pay him to step aside then.

    Really looking forward to this fight. I think it answers questions on both guys. We all know that Ortiz is a top quality boxer skill wise, and has power but is he on the slide being nearly 40
    If wilder wins then there's no doubt he's a threat to anyone and everyone in the division with his power and natural physical advantages. 50/50 fight imo
