These two heavyweights are top-notch and match up well with one another as we get deeper into fight week.

Andy Ruiz’s Betting Outlook vs Ortiz

Ruiz is the former unified heavyweight champion of the world. He won and lost the belts to Anthony Joshua in a pair of contests.

The first fight for Ruiz generated one of boxing’s biggest upsets of all time when he knocked out Joshua in June 2019 to become the first heavyweight world boxing champion of Mexican descent. Ruiz dropped his IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA crowns back to AJ in December of that year.

‘The Destroyer’ makes his return to the ring for his first fight in sixteen months. Conversely, this is Ortiz’s second bout of the calendar year.

Chris Arreola, win via UD Fight 1 Charles Martin, win via TKO
Anthony Joshua, loss via UD Fight 2 Alexander Flores, win via KO
Anthony Joshua, win via TKO Fight 3 Deontay Wilder, loss via KO
Alexander Dimitrenko, win via RTD Fight 4 Christian Hammer, winvia UD

Both fighters have been adjacent to the title and prominent in heavyweight hierarchies for the last few years. But only one can notably advance forward from here while the other faces a sizable setback.

Ortiz’s Betting Outlook vs Ruiz

Ortiz is a former two-time WBC  world heavyweight title challenger and the former WBA interim world titleholder. His only losses as a pro came to tenured former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder

‘King Kong’ has put together back-to-back finishes since that second WBC world title bid fell short. It’s understandable to see Ruiz as a favorite here but Ortiz is nowhere near the underdog that oddsmakers seem to see him as here. This is a perception of Luis Ortiz that fans and pundits alike share coming into this fight.

The winner of this contest will be well positioned to contend for heavyweight hardware against either Oleksandr Usyk or Tyson Fury.

Ortiz has the superior finishing rate, long reach, and the unique southpaw angles afforded to him here with Ruiz having a bit of experience edge.

Andy Ruiz vs Luis Ortiz Prediction

This prizefight features two heavy-hitting heavyweights and looks to be a barnburner bout on paper.

A prop bet on this fight ding the distance is positioned at +135 and think that presents good value.

Also, a prop bet on Ruiz winning via decision is valued at +250 and I also think that is a solid bet to go with for this contest.

Pick: Andy Ruiz (-360)
