Report: Big Undercard Fight Set For Ruiz Jr. vs. Arreola Undercard
A big heavyweight clash is set to be featured on the undercard of Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Chris Arreola.
On November 7, Ruiz vs. Arreola is scheduled to headline a PBC on FOX event. The site of the venue depends on whether or not fight fans will be allowed to attend events by that time. If things remain unchanged, the card will likely be held inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.
Boxing Scene is reporting that a heavyweight bout between Luis Ortiz and Scott Alexander has been agreed upon for the undercard. It has been noted that if Ortiz and Ruiz win their bouts, it could set up a clash between the two sometime in 2021.
Ortiz challenged Deontay Wilder for the WBC Heavyweight Championship back on November 23, 2019. This was a rematch and once again, Ortiz was stopped by Wilder. In the rematch, Ortiz suffered a seventh-round knockout loss. The loss dropped Ortiz’s record to 31-2, 2 NC.
Alexander will go into his fight against Ortiz with a pro boxing record of 16-3-2. He is coming off a split decision victory over Luis David Rodriguez Aguilar. Ortiz is known for his punching power, scoring 26 knockouts but Alexander has yet to be knocked out. Time will tell if that changes.
