Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz will put on a classic tonight in the squared circle. Fact.
The only fact we don’t know yet is who will have their arm raised following the bloody bout.
Mayweather is obviously the heavy favorite going into the duel. It’s up to Ortiz to put “Money” to shame with a monstrous upset.
One has to wonder, would Floyd cry if he lost this matchup? Who wants some of that action, eh? Right now, the only man we can count on to make such a spectacle happen is Ortiz.
Does he have what it takes to break through Mayweather’s castle-like defense? Floyd won’t lower the drawbridge for anybody. Ortiz is going to have to swim across that lengthy moat to take “Money” down while packing a heavy punch.
It may be Ortiz’s only hope because he’s not going to out-technician the masterful technician. Mayweather has no problem boxing a boring, slow-paced bout.
He’ll take his jabs, win by decision and have everyone calling for Manny Pacquiao to demand the epic showdown we’re all desperately yearning to see in our lifetime.
This is Ortiz’s best chance at becoming somebody truly special. Mayweather is easily the best opponent he’s faced in his career. He’s completely different than anybody he’s faced before. The pressure is on Victor like never before. This is what legends are made of and we’ll see if he has what it takes to make the leap.
All eyes are on him to embarrass Floyd and notch knockout No. 23.
Either way, this bout should drive “Money” closer to Manny.
There aren’t many big fights left on the table for Mayweather. If he wins, Pacquiao is the only next logical opponent. If he loses, Floyd would need immediate redemption in the form of the Pac-Man.
All that matters right now is Mayweather is back. He has as much to prove at this point in his career as Ortiz does. He needs this bout to further cement himself atop the world and above Pac-Man. This is sure to be the most exciting bout of the year with these two determined men. The intensity has been amplified and magnified.
Don’t miss any moment of the action as we’ll have live results. More importantly, don’t miss the exhilarating post-fight reaction that you need before you go to sleep. Don’t rack your brain about what’s next for Mayweather and Ortiz, sit back and let us do it for you.
