The coach of the Cuban Luis Ortiz, Herman Caicedo is convinced that his client will not fight Alexander Usik. The reason, he said, is that the team of Ukrainians are afraid that Ortiz will knock out Mustache.
Coach Ortiz believes that the Tendril must first prove himself in the heavyweight division. Caicedo not impressed with the debut of Ukrainian hevewae.
Ortiz will not fight with a barb, because Hearne (Eddie Hearn – promoter of the Mustache, – Спорт24) is not going to look like Ukrainian nokautiroval. The mustache didn’t look very good in a battle with Witherspoon, and he seems too weak and small for a heavyweight,
said coach Ortiz YouTube channel FightHype.com.
His last fight Ortiz held on 23 November in the United States. Cuban was knocked out by DevTeam Wilder in a duel for the title of world champion under version WBC.
For Ortiz it was the second defeat in 33 matches. The first defeat of Louis also struck Wilder.
At the same time, the Tendril made its debut in the heavyweight division on October 14. In Chicago, Alexander defeated Cassa Witherspoon, who refused to continue the fight after the seventh round.
Probably next opponent of the Tendril will be a Briton Derek Chisora. Negotiations on the fight allegedly started.
