    Jul 4, 2014 need to exaggerate. Ortiz is not a day over 60 years old.

    Totally disagree with this - Ortiz is a top fighter who has been avoided. Age is definitely not on his side but he is a force.

    For example: would destroy Chisora IMO.

    There are not many out there who would beat Ortiz and if Bakole is what some (Billy nelson) tout him to be then he should be beating a "98 year old" Ortiz. I dont think he would. I think ortiz would get to him late.

    Bakole's reputation is far better than it deserves to be IMO. He's stopped two usually very durable guys in Johnson and Wach but not much else. I'm still not that impressed yet to be honest, and don't really get why he's spoke about as one of the top contenders. If he fought and beat Ortiz, it would be his best win for sure, but if it were to happen it would be down to having a superior gas tank most likely. For me, the jury's still out on Bakole. Still waiting for him to beat somebody that will make me sit up and take notice. But the same could be said for a lot of the heavyweight "contenders" because they don't fight each other often enough. So credit to Bakole at least for taking the Hunter fight. If he'd have won that, he'd deserve the reputation he has.
