Communism is the evil we can all do without in this world. Just ask this boxer. He would have countless stories to tell you, and not one of those would be enjoyable. Born on the 29th of March 1979 in Camagüey, Cuba, this professional boxer endured a long and agonising wait before his talents could earn him what he truly deserved. As someone with a fledgling amateur career, he should have acted much quicker.

His nickname has to be the most pertinent in sports history. We wouldn’t want to be mauled by this thing. – via Instagram

As a boxer who was constantly putting his body on the line, it was imperative for this man. However, he waited thirty long years before defecting to the USA. His daughter’s sickness spurred him on to do the unthinkable. King Kong (his nickname) debuted as a pro in the USA against Lamar Davis on the 16th of February, 2010. Since then, this southpaw has fought in 36 other fights and has won 32 of those. His debut fight was a winner too. Deontay Wilder has been his nemesis so far. He has lost both his fights against that man and would be hoping to set that record straight if he gets another chance.

Luis Ortiz Wife

As someone who grew up in Cuba, this boxer didn’t have the luxury of choice. Plus, all the information that we’ve gathered about him points to the fact that King Kong is a creature of habit. He has been a one-woman man all his life, and that lady happens to be Lisdey.

Who is Luis Ortiz currently dating?

This Cuban man has not revealed any information about how and when he met his wife. But we know that they’ve known each other for a very long time and were married before he defected. Lisdey waited for three years after he moved to join him in the USA. The family is united, and they now lead a happy life in South Florida.

Family: Parents, Siblings & Children

King Kong grew up in communist Cuba. Although he took to boxing at a very early age and even represented his country internationally, the young man didn’t enjoy living there. Things are a lot better for him now. However, he still maintains an eerie silence about his parents and siblings. We reckon that most of his family is still in Cuba, and he wouldn’t be doing them any favours if he opened up. We know that he has a daughter named Lismercedes with his wife. She suffers from an unfortunate medical condition called epidermolysis bullosa. We’ve found out that it can be extremely painful. Everyone here at wtfoot hopes and wishes she makes a complete recovery. He also has another daughter and a son with his wife. Their names are unknown.
