Luis Ortiz is a nightmare for any opponent in the heavyweight division. The current Interim Champion, Luis Ortiz, destroys his opponents by inflicting significant physical damage, using bone-crushing-blunt-force. With a record of (24-0-0-21) it’s easy to see why there aren’t any top contenders knocking down Ortiz’ door because fighting Ortiz is high risk with little financial reward.
Saturday October 17, in front of 20,548 rabid fans at Madison Square Garden, Golovkin methodically beat down a game David Lemieux to unify the Middleweight titles. Saturday’s stoppage of Lemieux marked Golovkin’s 21st straight KO and his 15th successful defense of his titles. You got to give credit to Lemieux who unlike other fighters stepped up to face the devastating puncher in GGG.
With his victory on Saturday, GGG and the rest of the boxing world will have their eyes on the November 21, 2015 battle, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs Miguel Cotto for the WBC World middleweight title.
5-time world champion from Albuquerque, New Mexico,
Wladimir has almost all of the belts, and has defeated countless titlists — some of them twice — and silenced the former WBA champion David Haye! So why is Wladimir Klitschko criticized? Is he boring? He doesn’t take many risks? Is it because he’s a Europesan title holder and has beat every top American Heavyweight out there?
Regardless of what you may think there’s something to be said about a technically sound heavyweight boxer who’s great jab is reminiscent of the great Larry Holmes. Believe me, there have been times I wanted to change the channel because his cautious boxing style is like watching grass grow. But you can’t deny Wladimir’s relevance amongst some of the great heavyweights. You have to give props to a fighter like Klitschko.
