Floyd Mayweather’s mouth moves fast, but his punches keep up with it and round out his attack.

Mayweather is a mental fighter just as much as he is physical. He will dance into the opponent’s head, and his confidence will never waver.

The speed that Mayweather brings to his fighting style is blinding at times.

It is going to be the one weapon that will allow him to overpower the strength of Victor Ortiz.

Combinations are going to be Mayweather's best friends. As he works the body, he will earn points and tire out Ortiz.

Ortiz will fatigue from the shots to the chest, and his guard will fall as he tries to get Mayweather away.

This will then open him up for Floyd Mayweather to make more crucial hits.

Mayweather will then capitalize with shots to the head as Ortiz’s guard is down.

Mayweather’s speed will also benefit him if the fight falls out of his favor.

If from the start he does not create openings for himself, he has the ability of avoidance. His speed will let him dance and get away from Ortiz, allowing him to use his strong counter-game.

Mayweather is one of the best defensive boxers ever. If he is forced to dance, he will be able to do it masterfully.

If put on his heels, Mayweather will be able to find his offense from his defense.

Ortiz has heavy fists. He is a man who looks like his strength can knock out any fighter.

Oriz has yet to meet a fighter like Mayweather. Other welterweights are forced to take many of his big hits, but Mayweather's dancing will have him ready defensively to counter, and Ortiz can be dropped.

Many question the strength of his heart. He had to give up during the Maidana fight because of a cut and being knocked down.

When Ortiz quit, he had the lead on both of the judges' scorecards.

Look for Mayweather to use his speed to get inside on Ortiz and eventually land the punch that either KO’s Ortiz or makes him give up.
