Vergil Ortiz Jr. to Fight Michael McKinson in Next Bout

Vergil Ortiz Jr. has enlisted his next opponent…

The 23-year-old Mexican American boxer and Michael McKinson have agreed to a fight that will headline a DAZN event in early 2022, according to ESPN.

Vergil Ortiz Jr.Ortiz, ESPN’s No. 4 welterweight, is one of boxing’s fastest-rising stars. In his toughest test yet, Ortiz encountered some early rocky moments before scoring an eighth-round stoppage of Egidijus Kavaliauskas in August.

The power-punching Texan was ranked No. 4 on ESPN‘s top 25 boxers under 25. Ortiz (18-0, 18 KOs) also owns a win over former champion Maurice Hooker, a seventh-round KO in March.

McKinson (21-0, 2 KOs) doesn’t offer name recognition or experience, but he does present the sort of awkward southpaw style that will only aid Ortiz’s development.

The 27-year-old Englishman only has two knockout wins, but he has scored six knockdowns in his last four fights.

Ortiz is promoted by Oscar De La Hoya‘s Golden Boy Promotions.
