Vergil Ortiz Jr vs Michael McKinson On Saturday, September 14th, at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA, undefeated rising star Vergil Ortiz Jr. (15-0, 15 KOs) will take on Michael McKinson (22-1-1, 6 KOs) in a 12-round welterweight bout that will be streamed live on DAZN. Ortiz Jr., who is just 22 years old and hails from Dallas, TX, has been one of the most exciting prospects in boxing over the last few years. He turned pro in 2016 and has quickly racked up 15 wins, all by knockout.
In his last fight, which took place in July 2019, Ortiz Jr. scored a highlight reel knockout of former world champion Antonio Margarito. McKinson, 27 years old and from England, will be fighting outside of his home country for just the second time as a professional. He made his US debut in December 2018 with a win overAslanbek Kozaev via unanimous decision.
McKinson’s only loss came against Tyrone Nurse back in 2016; he’s since won seven straight fights. This should be a very competitive fight between two young welterweights looking to make their mark on the division. Both guys have demonstrated power early on in their careers and have shown an ability to end fights inside the distance.
I think Ortiz Jr.’s youth and athleticism could give him the edge here but McKinson is no pushover and I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled off the upset. Tickets for the event are priced at $49-$129 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino box office.
