How do you like the idea? The promoter is ready to bring Ennis and Ortiz in a head-to-head fight


Promoter Oscar De La HoyaGolden Boy Promotions, GBP) is ready even now to bring together in a face-to-face duel two of the strongest welterweight prospects – Americans Jaron Ennis (29-0, 27 KOs) and Virgil Ortiz (19-0, 19 KOs).

De La Hoya
complains on other fighters and promoters. He claims that it is very difficult to find a worthy opponent for Ortiz: “We have to almost force people to fight Virgil. I think he’s in the top 3 or top 4 in the division right now. I believe that soon he will get a chance to fight for the belt.”

At the boss GBP was asked about the readiness to put Ortiz against Ennis now and now. Here is his answer: “Not a question at all. Why not? I think you could actually do a lot of great fights at this weight.”

It’s funny that Terence Crawford’s sidekick just said the other day that Ortiz was pulled out of the fight. But what if such a fight did take place? The fighter who fought with both chose the favorite.

Meanwhile, Ennis reacted to the disruption of the Spence-Crawford fight – they demand a fight with Errol. But he’s not the only one in the battle for Spence. Unbeaten applicants argue for the “right of the first night.”
