I am grateful for the opportunity to be the main event at the Showbox,” said Ortiz, who has been promoted by Jimmy Birchfield and has fought with Vasily Lomachenko, and has faced Jaime Ennis and Teofimo Lopez among amateurs. I have been waiting for this for many days. I’m ready for a great performance. It’s a great platform for future champions and on 18 February, I’m going to put the lightweight division on notice.
“It’s a great feeling to be headlined in the Shobox,” said Albright, promoted by Rodney Rice. “It simply came to our notice then.
