Immigrant of the Day: Luis Ortiz (Professional Boxer), Cuba


Luis (King Kong) Ortiz left Cuba on a small boat in the hopes of securing medical care for his daughter.  He had an accomplished amateur boxing career in Cuba.  Now residing in Miami, Ortiz is a top flight professional heavyweight boxer. 

On a New Year's Day pay per view, Ortiz survived two knockdowns to score a sixth-round stoppage of Charles Martin in a fight at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. Click here for a boxing bio of Ortiz and information about the fight.
