Anthony Joshua to defend WBA title against Ortiz:

British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will now be defending his WBA title against Cuba’s Luis Ortiz.

Joshua’s hopes for a rematch against Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko were dashed after the ring legend hung up his boxing gloves on Thursday.

Klitschko, 41, drew his curtains in the ring after a 9-year reign as world heavy weight champion which ended in 2015.

Joshua, who beat Klitschko at Wembley in April, has also been told he must face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev before 2 December or risk being stripped of his belt.

He holds two of the four major belts, with New Zealand’s Joseph Parker being the WBO champion, while American Deontay Wilder has the WBC belt.
