Vergil Ortiz Jr. Vs. Fredrick Lawson Weigh-In Results

Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Fredrick Lawson made weight for their clash on Saturday.

Ortiz makes his debut above 147 for the contracted weight of 156 pounds following his health scare in his fight against Eimantas Stanionis. The boxer collapsed during fight week and was taken to hospital. It was confirmed he could no longer make the 147 limit as any return would be above that. He faces Lawson who has fought at the weight class before, but with 19 wins and all of them by knockout, Ortiz is still the favorite. Both men made weight. Ortiz hit the scales at 156 pounds, while Lawson weighed 152.4 pounds.

Ortiz Vs. Lawson Reaction

“I feel that Vergil Ortiz is a powerhouse, and at 154, he’s coming after everybody. Whatever fights that any other promoter is willing to make. I want to make the best fights happen. We’ll see on Saturday night. Tomorrow night is going to be a walk in the park. Every fight is going to be exciting, and then we’ll take it from there.

“2024, it starts today. This is where it starts. By the end of 2024, I want to make sure that boxing keeps thriving, gets the best fights, and makes sure that all the promoters work with each other. “Every fighter out there, let’s fight hard. We chose this sport, and let’s give it our all,” De La Hoya said

“I’m excited. I’m ready to throw down and show the fans what they’ve been missing out on for two years. Never settle for less. You can always do better, and I’m always proud of myself and my team. I’m just happy,” Ortiz Jr.

“He can get it back. It starts with Fredrick Lawson, and then hopefully step him up to a higher level of opponent, and then we can see the Vergil Ortiz, a superstar in the making like four years ago that has done nothing since except have unfortunate physical issues,” Chris Mannix
