UNDEFEATED heavyweight contender, Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, joined forces with Matchroom Boxing on Saturday in a partnership that substantially expands the playing field for the former interim WBA World champion.

Boxing News spoke exclusively to Team Ortiz on Saturday to learn more about the decision and what’s next for the Cuban sensation.

“I am very excited that we came to a deal with Eddie,” said Ortiz. “I believe that the best and fastest way to stardom is being in the UK and in the USA. With Eddie already having Joshua, we believe that getting close to Matchroom Boxing is one of the fastest routes to stardom.”
