Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz, fifth ranked in the latest rankings of the World Boxing Association (WBA) wants to make history by becoming the first heavyweight champion of his country. Last Saturday in Nicaragua, he crushed local fighter Walter Palacios in two round set up his path to an elimination against Russian fighter Alexander Ustinov. The winner would eventually place himself in line for a shot at champion Alexander Povetkin, who holds the WBA's "regular" title.

"After the fight with Hasim Rahman (mandatory challenger) and regular champion Alexander Povetkin, on July 14, the winner of this eliminator between Ortiz and Ustinov will become the mandatory challenger to the crown," said Ricardo Rizzo, international matchmaker and advisor to promotional company "Dream Team", which is based in Miami, Florida.

"On July 14 we will know the exact date of the fight between Ortiz (16-0, 13KOs) and Ustinov (27-0, 21 KOs), a strong fighter who is undefeated and will surely be tough to beat, but Ortiz has to prevail."

this should be a decent fight although i find ustinov similar to valuev in a sense that he doesn't seem to fight any top HWs. he has been beating C & C+ level opponents. ortiz has been fighting even weaker opposition. ustinov beat monte barrett with a 12 rd decision. he is just big but very slow....

Ortiz is a bit ****y but he surely beats Ustinov and then he would be a good challenger for Povetkin.

doesnt povetkin have to fight wladimir 18 months after beating chagaev. after beating rahman, he prob defend voluntary vs adamek/chambers winner or rematch huck

[QUOTE=Mastrangelo]Why? I can see them very easily getting title shot.[/QUOTE] mannn, will povetkin even take a fight with his mando? I think after Rahman, they're looking for names

I can see Ortiz completely outclassing Ustinov the whole fight. Ustinov has nonexistent defense and will be countered to death by Ortiz who might be able to score a late tko if he focuses enough.
