I never thought the day would come. I honestly didn't.
This weekend Floyd Mayweather the man who is almost as elusive in the ring as he is outside of it returns to the ring against Vicious Victor Ortiz.
Ortiz is coming off a star-making performance against then-undefeated Andre Berto. At the time, it was considered an upset, but, in review, it's safe to say that Ortiz showed things that make us, as the boxing public, believe that we've only seen a fraction of what Ortiz is capable of.
Even with this new-level stardom, however, the young Ortiz faces a man who has never been defeated. For the last two decades, Floyd Mayweather has been the boxing world's smiling cash cow. He is loved by many, hated by more, and respected by all. In recent years, Mayweather has successfully avoided fights with Pound-for-pound number one Manny Pacquiao while at the same time unsuccessfully avoiding legal trouble. Yet, he remains the most centralizing figure in all of boxing, always a mark on a calendar fighter, always the main attraction.
What makes Victor Ortiz a different opponent than the other 40 that have failed to dethrone Mayweather? Does he even stand a chance? Why did Floyd choose Victor Ortiz?
Tune in this week for the discussion....
