Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Fredrick Lawson are scheduled to compete against one another on Saturday, January 6. On the show, which will also feature other notable boxing events, the fight will be the main event. Although Ortiz Jr. will be competing against Lawson in a junior middleweight bout that will last for twelve rounds, the fight will be preceded by a fight for the WBA interim super lightweight title between Ohara Davies and Ismael Barroso.
On the other hand, that fight comes before Arnold Barboza Jr. versus Xolisani Ndongeni, which is a super lightweight bout that lasts for ten rounds. One of the other fights on the bill has Raul Curiel defending his NABF welterweight title against Elias Diaz. The bout will last for ten rounds. The first two matches of the evening, on the other hand, are each much shorter than the others.

In a super light heavyweight fight that will go for four rounds, Jonathan Canas will compete against an opponent who is looking to be determined. Last but not least, the first bout is another four-rounder, and this time it is a super welterweight contest between Emiliano Gandara and Isaac Matamoros. The fight between Ortiz Jr. and Lawson, on the other hand, is the most exciting event on the card.
On DAZN, the card will be aired on a number of different apps, including Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire Stick, and Amazon Fire Tablet. The actual performance of the headliner will start tomorrow at 17:00 P.T. (Pacific Time) / 20:00 E.T. (Eastern Time).
The fight is of particular significance due to the fact that Ortiz Jr. is only 25 years old and has a record of 19 victories and 0 losses throughout his career. He exemplifies a new generation of boxers who have yet not lost a fight. Regrettably, he has not participated in any competitions since August 6, 2022. Lawson, on the other hand, is a more experienced fighter, having a resume that includes thirty victories and only three defeats. Furthermore, he is 34 years old, which is almost ten years older than the person he is competing against.

As a result, he is one of the few fighters who can boast a knockout percentage of one hundred percent.

Nevertheless, he is not merely a remarkable artist in his own right. As a boxer, Vergil Ortiz Jr. has also been awarded a number of accolades, including the WBA Gold welterweight title and the WBO International welterweight title, both of which he has successfully defended on two separate occasions since becoming the champion after Maurice Hooker was dethroned. Now, however, he is working toward winning a global championship.
