Despite failing to land the WBC world heavyweight title that night, Ortiz acquitted himself well and proved he could still mix it with the best.

Ortiz comfortably out-boxed Deontay Wilder for the opening six rounds that night before a devastating right hand left him on the canvas in the seventh.

After the fight, Wilder said: "He's one of the best in the world. Nobody has given Ortiz an opportunity, even after I defeated him.

"Normally after you knock somebody out, other guys are willing to fight him because they have seen weakness, chinks in the armour.

"They didn't want to fight Ortiz, they don't want to fight him now."

Tonight, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the 41-year-old southpaw should overcome his opponent in style and send a message to Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

Luis Ortiz vs Alexander Flores

Tip – Ortiz to win in rounds 3-4: 11/4 with Betfair*

The former interim WBA heavyweight champion still possesses the devastating power that's seen him boast a record of 31 wins and 26 career knockouts.

His opponent, California-born Flores, has age on his side at 30 and will be desperate to seize the opportunity to land a big scalp to propel himself up the rankings.

Alexander “The Great” Flores has won 18 of 21 fights and his only losses have come against former world champions Charles Martin and Joseph Parker.

But with it being last-chance saloon for Ortiz, we're backing him to shake off the rust and win in rounds 3-4 at 11/4.

Devin Haney vs Yuriorkis Gamboa

Tip – Devin Haney to win in rounds 9-10: 5/1 with Betfair*

Devin 'The Dream' Haney will defend his WBC lightweight title against Yuriorkis Gamboa tonight.

The 21-year-old's last victory was a unanimous points victory over Alfredo Santiago in November 2019 and we expect a similar outcome in L.A.

Despite this marking his return from shoulder surgery, Haney's record of 24-0 with 15 knockouts should safe against 38-year-old Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa.

Haney will be looking to make a statement against a big-name fighter and we're backing him to win the fight in rounds 9-10 at a massive 5/1.
