Boxing news, notes: Vergil Ortiz-Michael McKinson preview, Jake Paul

FORT WORTH, Texas – Ten rounds while hoping to never see Waleska Roldan scoring a meaningful fight again …

10. As ferocious as Vergil Ortiz is in the ring—and at 180 with 18 knockouts, Ortiz is as punishing as they get—he’s equally as affable outside the ring. Usually. The generally mild-mannered Ortiz has been a little prickly this week in advance of his showdown Saturday with Michael McKinson. Ortiz has taken exception to some of the criticism he received for withdrawing from a scheduled fight with McKinson last March due to rhabdomyolysis, a rare condition caused by muscle cells breaking down and releasing a substance into the blood.
