You don’t have to wait until Sunday to order Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Luis Ortiz fight. 


Headline Event

Former unified heavyweight champion Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. has been involved in a disciplined training regime to prepare for this fight. The now household name is quickly elevating back to the top of his division, to represent for his home country of Mexico.

“I’ve been training hard because we want to climb back up the ladder of the heavyweight division.” Ruiz says, “That’s why we picked a tough guy like Luis Ortiz. He has a hard style, but I’m positive and confident that I’m going to win this fight on September 4.”



Although top contender Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, who hails from Cuba, has ten years on his opponent, he’s not out of his league. He’s also staying on top of his fitness and his game face, as seen when he met the Los Angeles Rams in the gym.


 The 12-round WBC Heavyweight Title Eliminator will truly be a test of strength and tenacity with heavy competition.
