Two heavyweight contenders in Luis Ortiz and Charles Martin will look to start off 2022 with a bang as they face one another for bragging rights.
On January 1 inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, Martin and Ortiz highlight an all-heavyweight fight card.
A former title contender, Ortiz made his pro debut in 2010. At one point having had twelve fights in a row end via some form of knockout, Ortiz is a former interim WBA Heavyweight Champion. Ortiz almost beat Deontay Wilder back in 2018 for the WBC Heavyweight Title, but Wilder stormed back and knocked him out in the tenth.
Ortiz recovered by going on a three-fight win streak, and faced Wilder again in November 2019. Similar to their last fight, Ortiz was leading before getting knocked out by Wilder in the seventh. He rebounded in his last fight, as he knocked out Alexander Flores in November 2020.
Martin made his pro debut in 2012. A former WBO-NABO Heavyweight Champion, Martin beat Vyacheslav Glazkov for the IBF Heavyweight Title in 2016. He would lose the belt to Anthony Joshua a few months later, and has been looking to get back to the top ever since. Since the Joshua loss, Martin is 5-1 in his last six fights, and is currently on a three-fight win streak.
