Wilder vs Stiverne: When is Deontay Wilder fighting Bermane Stiverne? Date, time, venue

Wilder vs Stiverne.

Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne will face off for the second time

Wilder had been due to face unbeaten Luis Ortiz but the Cuban failed a drugs test earlier this month and the WBC were forced to withdraw their sanction of the fight.

Wilder was then ordered to fight his mandatory challenger Stiverne instead, a bout that represents a rematch of Wilder’s first title shot two years ago.

The 38-0 American triumphed on that occasion but his Canadian opponent remains the only man ever to have avoided a knockout against him.

So when will the two heavyweights face off again?

Wilder vs Stiverne date: When is the fight?

The change in opponent did not necessitate a change in date with Stiverne happy to step up at just a month’s notice.

The pair will get in the ring on Saturday November 4, 2017.

Wilder vs Stiverne time: When will the fight actually start?

Showtime’s broadcast of the night’s action will start at 1am UK time.

However, the two heavyweights are not expected to get into the ring until around 3am and that will depend on the progress of the undercard, which includes two former heavyweight title challengers facing off when Dominic Breazeale fights Eric Molina.


Wilder vs Stiverne venue: Where is the fight taking place?

Wilder is not known for his propensity to travel and since beating Stiverne for the WBC title in Las Vegas, he has forced challengers to come face him on home soil.

All bar one of his defences have taken place in Birmingham, Alabama – only the ninth-round knockout of Artur Szpilka was held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

And that’s where Wilder will look to hold a sixth successful defence.
