Cuban Luis Ortiz is steadily making a name for himself as a legitimate contender for any one of the world heavyweight title belts.


Big punching southpaw Luis Ortiz showed once again why he is the division’s danger man at the moment, showcasing his tremendous power in bludgeoning heavyweight gatekeeper Tony Thompson in 6 one sided rounds – scoring 3 knockdowns en-route to an impressive victory.

Ortiz moves to 25-0 (22KOs) but at 36, time is not on his side.

Up next for him is a mandatory defense of his WBA interim heavyweight against Russian Alexander Ustinov 33-1 (22KOs).

Thompson 44 drops to 40-7 (22KOs) and his best days are long behind him it is fair to say.

One would suspect he will now spend some time with Mrs Thompson, who was made famous in a certain fight interview when he shocked Liverpool giant David Price in recent times.
