That is a fight between two battle-tested fighters, which on paper for me has shades of Francisco Santana and Josseito Lopez. Which beforehand was going to be a classic war, but instead became Santana being target practice for ten rounds before the fight finally being stopped. Ortiz (32-6-3, 25 KOs) was last seen in a majority draw against Devon “The Great” Alexander in an absolute shootout but also back in 2018.
Hear us discuss more of the weekend of fights from the PBC on Fox show in Newark, NJ, to the Matchroom Boxing Card in Suburban London, and even the Olympics are getting down to important fights, on “The Big Fight Weekend Podcast” by clicking below,
Guerrero (36-6-1, 20 KOs) has been on a three-fight win streak since that loss to Omar Figueroa Jr. back in 2017. However, those three wins have been against favorable opposition and the last one was Gerald Thomas on points back n 2019. It’s a fight with two guys definitely looking to shake off the ring rust.
Featherweight contender Mark Magsayo (22-0, 15 KOs) will be battling the always tough Julio Ceja (32-4-1, 28 KOs). Unfortunately, Ceja hasn’t won a fight in four years since 2017, and unlikely that he’ll end his winless drought against Magsayo.
