Luis 'King Kong' Ortiz's Knockout Of Razvan Conjanu Was So Violent That It Gave Me Nightmares

Source - After giving Deontay Wilder his toughest test to date, Luis Ortiz wanted to make sure his name would remain in the conversation for a heavyweight title shot as he decimated Razvan Conjanu with a second-round TKO Saturday night.

Conjanu spent the first round posturing and trying to make it a point that King Kong could not hurt him. But he did very little to make the Cuban respect his offense. Aware that his opponent was being more of a showman than a fighter, Ortiz went after the 6-8 Romanian in the second round and drilled him with a straight left hand after a right hook over the top. Try as he might, Conjanu could not get his legs under him and took the 10 count.

So this happened on Saturday night and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. Just a perfect left hook to the throat that seems to come out of nowhere. I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t my nightmare. We go over how to act and react to all sorts of scenarios in the ring but there’s nothing you can do about this. You get hit that hard in the throat you’re going down. The scariest part about watching Cojanu get knocked out was up until that point he thought he was in control. Then the second he got clipped he opened up and King Kong let his hands go.

I’d be lying if I said it didn’t give me nightmares. I know I can take a punch, my trainer will attest to that, I just hate seeing how quick things can turn. Makes me realize how important it is to stay focused and not turn into a wild man the second the bell rings. Something that I’m going to have to keep in the front of my mind if I’m going to win this fight.

The good news is my opponent’s mind stopped developing in elementary school around the same time he started huffing glue so I have a distinct advantage there. The other good news is that I’m not fighting someone nicknamed, ‘King Kong,’ I’m fighting someone nicknamed ‘dumbass.’ I’m not underestimating him by any means, it’s just worth noting that Brae’s never been much of a brainiac. That’s why he spent his early twenties locked up for multiple botched drive-by-shootings and is now actively branding himself as a homophobe. Fucking loser.

Anyway, we’re one week out from the fight. Make sure to buy it now before prices go up. Don’t underestimate me.

August 5th, 7 PM. $15.99.  $19.99 the day of the fight.  

Side note: I was seriously considering putting out a 50 cent style promo asking my opponent to read a page from The Cat in the Hat. Still might.
