Pre Fight:

This is the call of Mayweather. One of the reasons that Mayweather has to fight Ortiz might probably about money. But he could get more of that if he had chosen Pacquiao. Mayweather Jr. understands that he doesn’t need that much money, he would rather have that undefeated record that will last for a long time. Furthermore, as long as he is undefeated, his legacy remains untainted.

In fighting Ortiz, he will make millions of money, adding to that is his share on Pay-Per-View purchases. Mayweather is known to transfix millions to watch him on PPV. Floyd craves for the people to see him again at his strength standing in the ring.

Mayweather has the confidence of dispatching Ortiz, he stated that he believes in his skills and his talents. He also said that this fight will not go the distance. However, everybody knows that he can make mistakes on his approach in fighting Ortiz.

Boxing experts have predicted that Mayweather will still get the win but he must be careful about Ortiz ability to knock him down. Mayweather is a smart fighter as proven in the past. He knows when and how to attack his opponent slowly until he enters in to his opponent’s weakness.

The 24-year-old Victor Ortiz shocked the world in his last fight when he defeated Andre Berto, April 16, 2011. Berto was the highest ranked welterweight behind Pacquiao and Mayweather at that time when Ortiz won the match. Ortiz showed to the world that he has something to fight for and he has the capability to match any of the boxers may it be Mayweather or Pacquiao.

With Ortiz record of 29-2-2, it is beguiling to know that he only loss once. He was disqualified in the first round when he hit on the break against Corey Alarcon. His legitimate defeat was on the hands of Marcos Maidana, June 27, 2009. Ortiz never had that fire on his eyes to fight Maidana. He failed to win.

Ortiz restarted his desire on top when he laboriously prepared for Berto fight in which he became successful and he earned the right for anybody to challenge him as the welterweight champion.

In one of his interviews, Ortiz mentioned that he has nothing to lose and nothing to fear in the biggest fight of his life. If Ortiz wins this fight, then we will be an immediate boxing superstar. He may earn the respect of boxing fans and he will instigated to challenge Pacquiao. On the other hand, if Mayweather wins this fight and Pacquiao defeats Juan Marquez in November, Mayweather expects for a bigger prize with Pacquiao.

Ortiz will get $2 million in guaranteed with a share from the PPV revenues. On the other hand, Mayweather will get $25 million plus a share on the PPP.

With the win of Mayweather, his next opponent will probably Manny Pacquiao.
