The wait is over. Andy Ruiz and Luis Ortiz will face each other in the ring this Sunday, September 4, in a fight where both fighters seek to regain ground in the heavyweight division and will be held at the Crypto.com Arena, in the city of Los Angeles.
How does Andy Ruiz fare against Luis “King Kong” Ortiz?
The Destroyer reappears in the midst of controversy since he has not fought since May 2021, when he defeated Chris Arriola by a split decision and left a bitter taste in his performance since he even went to the canvas.
And not only that, but after that fight, the Mexican left Eddy Reyno and the Canelo Team, so he changed trainers and is now prepared with Alfredo Osuna, so it is unknown what he will present this Sunday.
Luis Ortiz’s record
What is clear is that Andy Ruiz will face a tough opponent, as is the Cuban Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, who although he is 43 years old, has shown that he has a devastating punch, not for nothing holds a record of 33 wins (28 KOs), two defeats and two fights without result.
Andy Ruiz record
For his part, the Destroyer has a record of 34 fights won (22 KOs) and two defeats, where it is worth mentioning that one of those victories was against the British Antony Joshua, whom he defeated in 2019 to become that time world heavyweight champion.
“I’ve been training hard to climb back up the ladder in the heavyweight division. I feel great and the hard work has paid off. We are going to leave it all in the ring as Ortiz and I both want to be champions, so it will be a great fight,” indicated the Destroyer.
