  • It will be great to see you back in the ring for your annual fight, Vergil. See you again a year from now!

  • Should be an interesting fight. I believe McKinson will try to stick and move to start but once he feels Ortiz’ power and gets knocked down early in the fight he will go into survival mode, mostly moving while throwing the occasional counter. Eventually the powerful punches of Ortiz will badly mark up McKinson’s face, causing one eye to nearly swell shut. His corner will throw in the towel at the end of round 10.

    On the undercard, Cobbs is is going to suffer his second straight loss when Hooker stops him in 6 rounds.
