Andy Ruiz vs Luis Ortiz Prediction

Both of these fighters are very accomplished and both are vying for their next title shot, a win for either puts them in that conversation. There isn't much value on Ortiz and his odds might be slightly inflated due to him being the former champ, but Ortiz has major knockout power (28 career KOs) and could very easily come away with the upset if he catches Ruiz lacking. Considering how close these guys are in record and ability, take the flyer on the underdog they call "King Kong."
