Boxing After Quarantine
“I’m very thankful and excited to be headlining the first Golden Boy event after the quarantine,” said Ortiz to BadLeftHook.com “I’m happy that it’s still with the same opponent, so basically we’re picking up where we left off. It’s going to be a tough fight, and it’ll be a great way to kick off the year for me.”
“I’m happy to be back to work training in Las Vegas,” said Vargas. “I think that everything happens for a reason. I think this time off benefited me. I’m ready to upset the world. I believe I can come out with a win. The world is in a weird place right now. The show will be different. There will be no fans. But I have no doubt that I am going to win.”
