Luiz Ortiz and Charles Martin are returning to the ring after their respective hiatus to headline the first night of 2022. The two heavyweights will headline January 1, 2022 PPV from PBC and FOX.
Ortiz is coming off a 45-seconds knockout win over Alexander Flores in November 2020. That win came after his second career loss to Deontay Wilder, where King Kong was challenging for the WBC Heavyweight title. Martin has been on a three-fight winning streak since his loss to Adam Kownacki in 2018. The loss to Kownacki was “Prince Charles” second career loss after he lost the IBF Heavyweight title to Anthony Joshua.
A win here for either of them could elevate them to a title challenger status. So, who among these top heavyweight will come out on the top? Check how you can buy the Luis Ortiz vs Charles Martin PPV and live stream the event online.
