Tszyu to Clash with Ortiz Jr. on Crawford-Madrimov Undercard

According to a report by Mike Coppinger of ESPN.com, boxing enthusiasts might witness a thrilling showdown between Tim Tszyu and Vergil Ortiz Jr on August 3, set to grace the undercard of the Crawford versus Madrimov event.

The eagerly anticipated bout hinges on Ortiz's (20-0, 20 KO) victory over Thomas Dulorme this Saturday, an outcome widely anticipated by pundits.

Tszyu (24-1, 17 KO) recently faced defeat against Sebastian Fundora on March 31, a loss that cost him his world title and unbeaten record. However, Tszyu's valiant effort in the intense bout, arranged on short notice after Keith Thurman withdrew, earned him a legion of fans and heightened recognition.

Recent reports also indicate Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz and Andy Ruiz Jr will make their returns to the ring on the same card, alongside a third clash between Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares.

Yet, the potential Tszyu versus Ortiz encounter stands out as the highlight of the event. It promises an electrifying spectacle, likely to be a must-watch for fans, presenting Ortiz, 26, with a significant challenge and Tszyu, 29, with a bold and risky return to the ring.
