Vergil Ortiz Jr versus Maurice Hooker breakdown

This is a really good fight between Vergil Ortiz Jr who is storming towards a world title shot at Welterweight and Maurice Hooker who is a former champion at Super Lightweight.

Virgil Ortiz Jr is a big puncher with a solid jab and relentless pressure. He works to the body well and has stopped all 16 of his opponents so far. His defence is really the only questionable thing about his style in my opinion as he is open to being hit.

Maurice Hooker is a good fighter with respectable power and boxing skills though isn’t a great technical boxer. I think his defence is fairly shaky but he does have a lot of heart.

I think Virgil Ortiz Jr will win by knockout in the 7th or 8th round due to breaking Hooker down slowly who will win a few early rounds before slowing down.
