WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder enraged after learning of the news. He gives his reaction with furious anger.
Team Ortiz hit back today at the WBC President tweeting that their man failed a VADA test. They said this was due to him needing to be on blood pressure medicine.
Wilder is not buying that however and is on a rampage at the moment online expressing his disgust at the prospect of the fight possibly not going ahead.
