“King Kong” Ortiz returns December 1!
The under-card for the Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury PPV showdown in Los Angeles is starting to round into shape. 3KingsBoxing has now learned top Heavyweight contender Luis “King Kong” Ortiz will be a part of the under-card.
Ortiz (29-1, 25KOs) will step in the ring to face Travis Kauffman (32-2, 23KOs). On the comeback trail following a 10th round TKO loss to Deontay Wilder in a terrific contest in March, he had a bounce-back second round knockout over Razvan Cojanu in July, also in Los Angeles.
Kauffman is 14-1 (1 NC) in his last 16 fights with his only loss coming at the hands of Amir Mansour by majority decision. While it’s nice to see the former interim WBA champion active following his loss, on paper this bout looks to be little more than a showcase fight for the Cuban fighter.
