Vergil Ortiz one of the hardest hitters in the Golden Boy promotions roster will showcase his skills against Antonio Orozco live on DAZN on August 10, in front of a hometown crowd in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Also on the card will be two of his stablemates from the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, Joshua Franco and Hector Tanajara.
Vergil Ortiz Jr. (13-0, 13 KOs) is a highly touted prospect in the welterweight division. He is known for his knockout power with all of his fights ending by KO. At only 21, he has already made the boxing world notice he is a serious contender in the division.
Ortiz trains under Robert Garcia in Riverside, California but tonight he is extra motivated to put on a show in his hometown of Grand Prairie, Texas.
Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (28-1, 17 KOs) is a former title challenger who only lost to Ortiz’s stablemate Jose Carlos Ramirez for the WBC light welterweight title.
Orozco thinks he can pull off the shocking upset and end the knockout streak of the promising young Texan.
It will be hard task for Orozco because the last opponent who said he would teach the young KO artist a lesson was experienced ring veteran Mauricio Herrera, who got knocked out by Ortiz in the third round.
