Betting on Silva vs Ortiz
Anderson Silva’s boxing debut was 23 years ago in Brazil, while “The Spider” has spent most of combat sports career in the cage. He still holds a win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in June, defeating the legends son by split decision. Some online sportsbooks already have Silva listed as a -1000 favorite, it’s clear he oddsmakers are hot on Silva’s boxing ability at this latter stage of his career. Stylistically Ortiz’s bread and butter was wrestling. While he did pick up some KO victories, he was never had the same stand-up ability that Silva had.
Silva’s opponent is former UFC light heavyweight champion aka “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy”. This will be Ortiz’s debut in boxing after last competing in mixed martial arts in 2019 with a lopsided first-round submission win over professional wrestling star Alberto El Patron. The stakes are much higher here for Ortiz, given that this is not a boxing exhibition and will be Silva’s second boxing bout this year.
Silva and Ortiz are both 46 years of age, and this should make for an interesting match-up. In terms of betting on this fight I am siding with Anderson Silva to defeat Tito Ortiz by decision.
Logan Missed Out on Ortiz
Earlier this week, Ortiz teased that he was preparing for a fight while adding that Logan Paul “missed out” on the opportunity to face him.
While Logan Paul was rumoured to be Silva’s next opponent, a switcheroo happened and now Ortiz will get his first chance to lace up the gloves and step inside the squared circle. Yes, boxing keeps throwing curveballs at us and this announcement has been welcomed thus far by fight fans.
