Luis Ortiz vows to keep fighting! 


Fight night against Wilder didn’t go as planned for Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz (31-2, 26KO). He suffered his second career defeat to the very man who gave him his first one in March 2018. Additionally, he lost his second bid to become the first Cuban heavyweight world champion in boxing history!

After being stopped in the 7th round in the rematch, Ortiz reflected briefly on his performance and his plans to keeping chugging forward with SecondsOut.

“100 percent they saw my job, they saw how focused I was. Everybody saw the fight.

“To go back, not even to get speed, I want to keep going forward full throttle.”

At age 40, Ortiz knows the window is closing on his world title aspirations. With his plans to keep fighting on, it’ll be interesting to see who he rumbles with to maintain within reach of a world title opportunity.

There’s a host of heavyweight contenders and former champions he could fight that would keep him relevant.

The problem, however, is not all of them fight under the PBC banner. The likes of Joesph Parker, Dillian Whyte, Alexander Povetkin, Michael Hunter, Oleaksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua all fight on DAZN.

Therefore, what viable and creditable names are realistically available for Ortiz when he returns to the squared circle in 2020?

Well you have former Wilder victims Dominic Breazeale and Gerald Washington, as well as top contender Adam Kownacki and current unified champion Andy Ruiz. These are all possibilities for “King Kong”.

For now, he must yet again go back to the drawing board and map out his next plan of action.
