Floyd Mayweather vs. Victor Ortiz: Why Pretty Boy Floyd Is the Clear Favorite

Floyd Mayweather has never had problems about being ever so vocal about his achievements, and rightfully so.

He has claimed that no other athlete works harder than him and that he is without a doubt the face of boxing.

Many would agree that the young champion Victor Ortiz, though the one defending, is in fact the underdog in this competition, as would be any other fighter a star like Mayweather should face.

But this time, the physical advantages are all up against Mayweather and one would have to wonder as to why, of all people, he chose to go against a beast like Victor Ortiz, almost a decade younger than him and more than evidently larger than him, after more than a year on vacation from the sport.

With athleticism, age and a young contender trying to catch up to him, things don't look the same as they once did for Mayweather. However, with his coined confidence and tremendous belief, he doesn't believe that any of those things would make a difference in his 42nd fight.

In the following slides we will see as to why, playing along in concordance to the "Starpower" theme, boxing's biggest star still is the favorite to outshine boxing's newest star in the galaxy of the sport.
