Vergil Ortiz Jr. (16-0) is a seven-time national champion boxer, and he is ready to make the leap from top prospect to world title contender. In 2019, he was named Prospect of the Year by multiple publications and boxing writers, including Ring Magazine. Then in 2020, he scored an impressive win over Samuel Vargas in one of the first major boxing matches back from the pandemic shutdown. Ortiz knocked out Vargas, as he has done with each of his opponents so far in his professional career. A lot of the chatter heading into this match surrounds what could be next for Ortiz Jr. with a win in this fight. If he can beat a former world champion, Ortiz believes he will be ready to contend for a title himself. That could mean a showdown with Terence “Bud” Crawford for the WBO welterweight championship.

Maurice Hooker (27-1-3) is the former WBO light welterweight champion, and he’d like to prove he’s still got a title run in him by beating this highly touted fighter. Hooker won his title in 2018 by beating Terry Flanagan, and he successfully defended his title twice. In his third defense, Hooker suffered his only pro career loss to Jose Ramirez, who still has that belt today. Now after a bounce-back win in December of 2019, Hooker has moved up to welterweight. Now he hopes to play spoiler, showing he’s capable of contending in this weight class by defeating this latest Golden Boy.
