Malik Scott: I'll Shut Luis Ortiz Up, I'll Slay King Kong!

World ranked heavyweight contender MALIK SCOTT, (38-2-1, 13 KO's), is headed to the world's foremost tourist destination, Monte Carlo, on Saturday, November 12 to face feared, undefeated and #1 ranked "King Kong" LUIS ORTIZ, (25-0, 22 KO's) at the Salle des Etoiles for the vacant World Boxing Association Inter-Continental Heavyweight Title.

 "This is the fight I wanted, I picked him, "said Scott. "I told my promoter Tom Brown one of the three, either Anthony Joshua, David Haye or Luis Ortiz."

"After Ortiz beat Bryant Jennings the media starting talking about his invincibility and that he was the most feared heavyweight and I immediately wanted to fight him. There's no such thing as unbeatable and I welcome the challenge to prove it."

"If I'm on my game on November 12, I'll shut him out. He's going to gas out early and I'll put on a boxing clinic," continued Scott. "Ortiz is my pathway towards a world title opportunity, this is my time to shine and slay 'King Kong'."

"Because of his rep this fight will get a lot of international attention and I'll be looking for full credit when I beat him, no excuses."

A native of Philadelphia, now residing in Los Angeles, Scott fights under the Sherman Oaks' based TGB Promotions' banner.

"Malik has wanted another big fight and this opportunity to face Ortiz comes at the right time," said TOM BROWN, President of TGB Promotions. "Malik is fearless and isn't at all intimidated by Ortiz's rep, he's fought or sparred every notable heavyweight over the last fifteen years."

Known as a true road warrior of the sport, last October Scott traveled to Orlando, Florida winning a dominant ten round decision over former world title challenger Tony Thompson. The previous October, Scott defeated Alex Leapai, also a former world title challenger in Australia.

The heavy-handed Ortiz has stopped his last four opponents, most recently the aforementioned Tony Thompson in the sixth round on March 5, 2016. Prior to that Ortiz brutally stopped former world title challenger Bryant Jennings in the seventh round on December 19, 2015.

Scott vs. Ortiz is presented by Matchroom Boxing in association with TGB Promotions and will be telecast LIVE in the UK on Sky Sports.

Malik Scott is the chinniest big guy I've ever seen I wish the guy could actually take a damn shot because he could beat a good portion of the guys at HW If he could.

Scott as per usual will piss himself and quit as soon as big punch lands. And it will land fast.
