Luis Ortiz’s heavyweight clash with Mailk Scott tops the bill in Monte Carlo

Your one-stop preview of a packed bill in Monte Carlo, with Luis Ortiz, Stephen Smith, Jamie McDonnell and Martin Murray all in action this Saturday night, live on Sportsclubsociety.

Background

‘King Kong’ Ortiz is considered one of the most dangerous heavyweights on the planet and can stake his claim for a world title shot when he battles Malik Scott.

On an exciting undercard, Smith will attempt to win a world title at the second attempt as he challenges WBA super-featherweight champion Jason Sosa.

Jamie McDonnell makes the fifth defence of his WBA bantamweight belt against the dangerous Liborio Solis, while Murray will take on unbeaten replacement Nuhu Lawal. 

What the fighters say

What the trainer says

What the experts say

He walks people down, he hunts them down, and they can’t escape. As an attacking aggressive fighter, Ortiz is dangerous.

Johnny Nelson on Luis Ortiz

He is the real deal. He’s won 25, knocked 22 of them out, and he is just walking through them all.

Darren Barker on Luis Ortiz

He’s a far more skilful fighter than people realise and he is well-seasoned at world title level. Nothing fazes him or worries him.
