Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (21-0, 18 KOs) returns to the ring against Brian “The Bear” Polly (27-18-1, 12 KOs) of St. Joseph, Missouri in a heavyweight bout on the undercard of the fight between Montreal’s David Lemieux (33-2, 31 KOs) and number one contender Hassan N’Dam (31-1, 18 KOs) on June 20.

Undefeated Cuban heavyweight Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz has had a successful career knocking out opponent after opponent since his professional debut in 2010. Ortiz has faced and defeated some of the toughest fighters of the sport including Luis Andres Pineda, Henry Saenz, Alex Gonzalez and Lateef Kayode, all while adding the WBA FECARBOX Heavyweight title, the WBA Fedelatin Heavyweight title and the WBO and WBC Latino Heavyweight titles to his collection.

The contender is returning from a seven-month hiatus after fighting for the interim WBA Heavyweight World Championship in September 2014 and is ready to prove himself in front of fans and critics that he is back as a serious contender in the sport.

Brian “The Bear” Polley of St. Joseph, Missouri is a tough fighter who is coming off a decision victory over Travis Fulton this past March. A professional since 1999, the seasoned fighter has fought for the USA Mid-American Heavyweight Title, the USA Mid West Heavyweight title, the WBC Continental Americans Heavyweight title and the WBA Fedecentro Heavyweight title. In 2014, Polley faced Aaron Green, Bryan Dailey and Yasmany Consuegra, and in his second fight of 2015, Polley is looking to add another victory to his record when he faces Luis Ortiz on June 20.
