Update: Please CONTINUE HERE for the details on watching Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. return again to prove his so called “might” against the young and the vicious current WBC world welterweight champion, Victor Ortiz will be his opponent. This is what the undefeated boxer twit on his Twitter account. The said fight is set to happen on September 17, 2011 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It became controversial when Floyd turned down the challenge of fighting Manny Pacquiao and when Pacman’s group takes the Pacquiao vs. Marquez III rematch, he then goes out from the so called “retirement” and takes on Victor Ortiz to challenge his welterweight belt.
This makes a lot of boxing analysts to wonder why he will go for Ortiz and not Pacquiao.
Ok, let start checking on Victor Ortiz’s skills and professional boxing records and why he is worth to challenge and fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.. Do you know that Ortiz got two lost on his record? Right but it doesn’t actually a real lost. His first was because of DQ and should not be counted as a “real lost.” His current record is 29 wins, 2 losses, and 2 draws with 22 KOs (about 76% first of his fight knocks his opponent down, really “vicious”.) Another thing, he is a southpaw and this is I think the first challenger that Floyd Mayweather Jr. that possesses the same style as Pacman and he is 10 years younger than the veteran boxer.
That is the advantage of Mayweather against Ortiz. He is young and the undefeated fighter got 10 years experience that is so useful in boxing event like this.
The question now is if Victor Ortiz’s viciousness is enough to deliver the biggest upset in the life of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Everyone tried and almost everyone believes that only Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is the guy for him. Is he the right guy to challenge and give the first lost for him?
Oh, well let us just watch Mayweather vs. Ortiz on September 17 for us to witness ourselves on what will happen with this match.
