A fight very much going under the radar in the heavyweight division is the clash between former unified world champion Andy Ruiz Jr. and former world title challenger Luis Ortiz. The pair faced off ahead of their bout in September as both men look to re-enter the world title picture.
The pair would share a tense face-off, no verbals traded during the staredown, but there was also no handshake at the end of it. A big takeaway was that Ortiz will be entering the bout with a large height difference. However, Ruiz Jr. proved in 2019 that height isn't an issue when he knocked out Anthony Joshua to become world champion.
Ruiz Jr. and Ortiz clash on September 4th in Los Angeles in an intriguing speed vs power bout. The bout can be watched live on FOX PPV in the US and is yet to be picked up by a UK broadcaster.
