According to ESPN MX, there is a very fascinating battle between former unification heavyweight champion Andy Lewis Jr. and former two-time world title challenger Luis King Kong Ortiz by mid-2020.
Winner Luis vs Ortiz could compete for the world title with WBC heavyweight champion Shawndell if he beat Tyson Fury this weekend.
Ortiz (31-2, 26 K) and Luis Jr. (33-2, 22 KO) are with the Premier Boxing Champion as well as Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KO). You can easily fight between one of them and the WBC champion Deon Thai.
Andy Lewis has a lot to earn fighting Ortiz
If Lewis Jr. can beat Ortiz, he will say a lot about his talent, especially if he gets involved in a fight in the form in the 250s.
If Lewis Jr. weighs in the 280s as he lost to Anthony Anthony last December, he will certainly lose, so he will have to be in better condition to beat Ortiz.
Ortiz is not happy with Boxing Lewis to beat him. He would be looking to track him down and put an exclamation point on his victory.
Ortiz gave Wilder his two toughest race races
Wilder was fed up to see Ortiz crouched about his best heavyweight, so he gave him a spontaneous title chance in March 2018 and stopped him in the 10th round in a thrilling fight.
Ortiz mistook Wilder in the seventh round and was about to be arrested.
Wilder returned Ortiz to nine innings after two rounds and killed him in the 10th inning.
Wilder gave Ortiz a rematch last November and stopped him on the 7th.
This is a dangerous comeback fight for Lewis Jr. to get rid of him from a 12-round one-way defeat to Anthony.
Cuba Ortiz is one of the most talented heavyweights in the division and one of the most technical. Joshua, Fury and Dilian White were not interested in fighting Ortiz, even though he was undefeated and considered a Divian of Division.
Lewis Jr. will risk his career against Ortiz
Losing to Ortiz will probably be Lewis’s last game of his career and it will be almost impossible for him to come back from another bad defeat.
In Ortiz, he could beat Lewis in a knockout. Ortiz will not be playing as safely as he did last December. That’s not how Ortiz fights.
Lewis’ management would better bring him back to soft goals such as Dominique Blairzer, Adam Conacki, Charles Martin, Gerald Washington, Oscar Rivas, and Joseph Parker.
Lewis Jr. said they would come after all they said they couldn’t have. You are always misunderstood, criticized, and questioned in the process of pursuing a dream.
He finished training and felt great. Thank you for all the blessings God has given me. A lot of hard work, sweat and tears. Don’t say that everyone comes down to you and you can’t do this or this. Believe in God and believe in yourself. Anything is possible.
