Luis Ortiz Fights Malik Scott – Heavyweight action tops Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing’s latest offering this Saturday night in Monte Carlo, Monaco as Cuba’s undefeated Luis Ortiz (25-0) takes on Malik Scott (38-2-1) for the vacant WBA Inter-continental heavyweight title.
The 37 year old Ortiz is one of the hottest names in the heavyweight division, and this fight materialized quickly for him after he joined Matchroom Boxing. Ortiz previously was a memeber of Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy stable, but Ortiz requested a release earlier this year and he signed with Hearn shortly thereafter.
As for Scott, he brings a fine record to the table but he has been off for more than a year, having last fought in October of 2015 against veteran Tony Thompson.
