Ring in 2022 with heavyweight action, as Luis Ortiz and Charles Martin fight for glory and a potential title opportunity. The two heavyweights will be fighting one another inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. This card will feature a number of heavyweights looking to impress right away.
Ortiz, a former title contender, made his pro debut in 2010 and at one point had 12 fights in a row end via some form of knockout. Facing Deontay Wilder twice for the WBC Heavyweight Title, Ortiz looked strong until he was knocked out in the later rounds both times. He is looking to increase his win streak to two after his last fight, a KO win against Alexander Flores in November 2020.
Martin, a former IBF Heavyweight Champion, is 5-1 in his last six fights and is on a three-fight win streak. His last win was via TKO against Gerald Washington in February 2020. A win against Ortiz could propel him back to title contention and avenge a loss he had against the now-former champion Anthony Joshua.
