Vergil Ortiz Jr. vs. Maurice Hooker: date, fight time, odds, TV channel and live broadcast



One of boxing’s fastest rising stars will test his mettle against a former world champion when Vergil Ortiz Jr. puts his undefeated record on the line against former junior welterweight champion Maurice Hooker on Saturday at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

Ortiz has shown tremendous maturity to accompany his incredible power, as he has racked up a 16-0 record with his 16 knockout victories. Although he has wins over players like Mauricio Herrera and Samuel Vargas, Ortiz has yet to face an opponent of the caliber of Mighty Mo.

Hooker (27-1-3) returns to the ring after a 15-month hiatus. He was supposed to face Regis Prograis weighing 143 pounds last year, but chose not to and will advance as a legit 147 pounds. The former WBO champion lost his title by knockout to José Ramírez in a matchup in July 2019, but recovered with a first-round knockout of the unknown Uriel Pérez before moving up in weight.

With the two fighters representing Texas vying for position in a stacked welterweight division, they will turn towards each other and the winner will become a major player in the division, while the loser will fall to the end of the line. .
