Luis Ortiz vs Charles Martin: Storylines
It will be an interesting fight between two rivals who are looking to be among the best in the division and, why not, aspire to fight for a world title. On one side will be the veteran Cuban fighter of almost 43 years, Luis Ortiz, who comes with more than a year of inactivity. His last fight was on November 7, 2020 and it was a first round KO victory over Alexander Flores.
On the other side will be the American Charles Martin, former IBF world champion, whose inactivity is even greater: his last fight was on February 22, 2020. On that occasion, he won against Gerald Washington by TKO in the sixth round. After his KO loss to Anthony Joshua, Martin has won 5 of his last 6 fights.
Both opponents have a very high KO percentage (almost 90% in the case of Charles Martin and 75% in the case of Luis Ortiz) so it wouldn’t be surprising if the fight doesn’t go the distance. Another factor to take into account is the long inactivity of both fighters, which could make them technically not very good. Still, it will be an entertaining fight (which, it should be noted, could be one of the last chances for Cuban Ortiz to get into title contention). The card will also feature Viktor Faust vs. Iago Kiladze, Gerald Washington vs. Ali Eren Demirezen, Jonathan Rice vs. Michael Polite Coffle and co-main event Frank Sanchez vs. Christian Hammer.
