Major Prospect Looking to Step Up, and a Respected Contender Looking to Rebound (Ortiz Jr. vs Orozco)

For Oscar De La Hoya, the Golden Boy stable is largely inhabited by those with the where-with-all in how to maneuver with media outlets, possessing the gift of gab, and the natural appeal that enacts them as a lightning rod to propel and push their business to the forefront as one of the most marketable stables.

There is one fighter however under their umbrella that can be looked at as the complete antithesis of their set norm, as he is a relatively quiet, humble, old school show up to work, lunch-pale kind of guy, who is arguably their 2nd best fighter under Golden Boy today, that being super prospect, and #5 WBA Junior-Welterweight contender 🇺🇸Vergil Ortiz Jr. (13-0-0, 13KO).

A Fighter in Real Peril (Maxim Dadashev) 🗞️

What was actually a good fight last night turned into a disaster later on, with potential tragic implications that we hope don’t manifest the worst fears that surfaced after seeing and hearing the news that has come about. Two hot prospects collided with one another yesterday in the Junior-Welterweight division with Puerto Rican 🇵🇷Subriel Matias (14-0-0, 14KO), and Russian 🇷🇺Maxim Dadashev (13-1-0, 11KO) fighting in a Title-Eliminator for the IBF belt held by Josh Taylor.

The way the fight broke out has no importance in comparison to the health of the fighter, (congratulations to Matias for advancing btw) but to give a very short breakdown… Continue reading “A Fighter in Real Peril (Maxim Dadashev) 🗞️”
