Okay, the entire thing is probably not fully pay per view worthy, however tomorrow night time’s Luis Ortiz-Charles Martin heavyweight scrap seems to not less than be an entertaining solution to have a good time the brand new 12 months. Whereas they may not be on the degree of Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, or Oleksandr Usyk (Joshua has already flattened Martin), every fighter mainly is aware of this is a chance to point out he’s nonetheless worthy of one other shot at a world title (Who is aware of? It took Jersey Joe Walcott a great very long time earlier than he lastly proved surely he was deserving of the heavyweight crown). Once more, it’s onerous to argue that is pay per view materials (which, sadly, it’s not), however attempt think about it as fundamental cable PBC bout to know why it’s worthy of curiosity.

With a powerful report of 32-2,  the Cuban schooled Ortiz is now reportedly 42 years previous, although some wouldn’t be stunned if it got here out the person was near a decade older. He’s a great fighter, Ortiz, expert and possessed of heavy palms. He additionally has willpower to burn. Ortiz’s two losses have come on the thunderous fists of Deontay Wilder. Should you take the identify Tyson Fury out of the equation, you notice a loss to Wilder must be no supply of disgrace. The Alabaman could be the toughest hitting heavy in historical past.

As for Martin, with a report of 28-2-1 and at 35 years of age, he can boast of getting held a world title – earlier than Joshua got here round, after all – which is spectacular irrespective of the way you take a look at it. He’s additionally misplaced to the robust Adam Kownacki, however anybody seeking to worship on the altar of good data these days might be looking out within the mistaken period. Mayweather’s retired, in spite of everything, and Tyson Fury, Errol Spence, and Terence Crawford are mainly the one fighters on the market for the time being with good data who’ve truly been by means of the figurative hearth. And, nice as they’re, good data aren’t the promoting level they had been throughout the reign of Mayweather.

Backside line – Watching Ortiz-Martin can be an effective way to spend the primary night of 2022 if it had been on Fox’ flagship station as an alternative of Fox pay per view. Sadly, watching this heavyweight throwdown now merely seems to be an honest method move the night time. Nonetheless, that is an attention-grabbing matchup, one I’m trying ahead to.
