Undefeated heavyweight Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (23-0, 20 KOs) scored a third round KO over Matias Ariel “El Matador” Vidondo (20-2-1, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant WBA Interim Heavyweight World Title. Ortiz dropped Vidondo in round two and finished him with another knockdown in the third stanza.

“I deserve this win and deserve to fight the best,” said Ortiz. “Vidondo did hit hard but he wasn’t good enough to face me. Everyone can see that I dominated the fight. I want to fight the best and I want Golden Boy Promotions to keep its promise and get me the best. I am ready for Klitschko, I know he is running from me. I am going to come after him. I am just ready to become the heavyweight champion of the world.”
