Vergil Ortiz Jr. solidified his standing as one of boxing's best prospects with a win on DAZN.
Fighting in the main event of a Golden Boy Promotions on DAZN card for the first time in his career, Ortiz defeated former world title challenger Antonio Orozco. Ortiz stopped Orozco late in the sixth round to become the new WBA Gold welterweight champion, potentially putting him in a spot to eventually challenge for a 147-pound world title.
Also on the card is the trilogy bout between Joshua Franco and Oscar Negrete and just like their first two encounters, there was no definitive winner in the eyes of the boxing community. Both men fought to a draw, just like in their first fight last year, but Franco would keep his two regional bantamweight titles, which he won when he narrowly beat Negrete on the scorecards in the rematch last year.
