FOX Bet Trading Operations Associate Matthew Griffe said the length of the bout could determine the winner.

If Ruiz is in shape, he could end the fight with a knockout, Griffe said. But the longer the fight, the more beneficial to Ortiz. 

“Ruiz vs. Ortiz has the promise of a vintage heavyweight slugfest between two mainstays at the top of the division,” Griffe said. “The main question here is, which Ruiz will enter the ring after his year-plus layoff? 

“A focused, in-shape Ruiz could send the crowd home early and oddsmakers anticipate this being the case as he currently stands as the heavy favorite. Ortiz is a crafty veteran, however, and maybe he has one last run in him at 43 years old.”

PICK: Andy Ruiz Jr. by decision (+275 at FOX Bet)

Ruiz is a former holder of multiple heavyweight titles when he upset Anthony Joshua by technical knockout in June 2019 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Ruiz claimed the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles with the victory, becoming the first male boxer of Mexican heritage to win a world heavyweight title.

Joshua got revenge by beating Ruiz in a unanimous decision six months later in Saudi Arabia.

Ortiz, who held the WBA interim heavyweight title in 2015-16, suffered both of his defeats to former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, the most recent coming on Nov. 23, 2019.

Since the second loss to Wilder, Ortiz has won his two fights by first-round knockout and a TKO.

The undercard features Isaac Cruz vs. Eduardo Ramirez, Abner Mares vs. Miguel Flores and Jose Valenzuela vs. Jezzrel Corrales.
