Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Michael McKinson’s thoughts on combat
The 12-round bout between Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Michael McKinson is shaping up to be a war that fans won’t want to miss.
This was a fight that was originally scheduled back in March but had to be postponed after Ortiz Jr. was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis. This is a condition that results from the death of muscle fibers and the release of their contents into the bloodstream, which can cause some serious health complications.
Now that his health has been restored, the pair can finally meet in the ring.
Whoever wins that fight will have positioned themselves to begin negotiations for a world title fight, and that’s exactly what these fighters want to do.
