How do you guys see this fight going?
Ortiz will land more jabs than AJ did and get hit less, he should win this one easily as long as he`s in shape.
Takam beat old grandpa Tony Thompson, but old grandpa Ortiz is just a walking stick too far.
I remember when Hearn brought Ortiz over to the UK but was scared to put him in with Anthony 'beats anyone on the planet' Joshua, or Dillian 'fights anybody on the planet' Whyte, so he offered the fight to Dave Allen instead.
Whyte and Joshua ducked Ortiz for years so yeah Takam sounds like a realistic opponent. Ortiz by UD.
I'll go against the grain and say that if Takam shows up in good nick he could win this. He's a good all round fighter and pretty busy.
Ortiz on points
I'll go with ortiz by ko
Ortiz UD 12. Takam can't outbox Ortiz, he certainly can't stop him. I can see Ortiz firing lefts down the pipe, the overhand left, the left uppercut etc.....all 12 rounds. Don't think anyone gets stopped here.
Joshua and Whyte didn’t want any of that Cuban smoke for good reasons
He was on a fight by fight contract. He was lucky to even get the Allen fight after the stinker v Malik Scott.
What smoke? Has he left his walking stick too close to the fire again?
Ortiz should eadily outbox Takam, but can see Grandfather time catchung up with Ortiz and gassing late in the fight.
Takam isn't that young himself
