Fight will be comparable to Floyd-Hatton

Many boxing experts predicted that the forthcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz will end via a late round stoppage or a unanimous decision; most of them are in favor of the undefeated Floyd Jr to win. Mayweather, who was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, now lives and trains in Las Vegas, where the fight dubbed as Star Power: Mayweather vs Ortiz will happen on September 17, 2011.

Based on the predictions, this mega-event, which is expected to garner over a million pay-per-view buys, will be comparable to Floyd Mayweather vs Ricky Hatton.

The Mayweather versus Hatton fight which happened on December 8, 2007 was one of the most entertaining fights in recent years.

Floyd and Ricky were both undefeated when they fought each other. In the first few rounds of their fight, Ricky was winning most of the rounds. In the middle rounds, Floyd started to unleash his barrage of punches after he discovered the fighting style of Hatton. In the 10th round, Mayweather hit Ricky with a solid hook to the chin - and it was an understatement - which made the whole world realize that Mayweather is not only an entertaining boxer who talks trash outside the ring but a warrior who knows how to adjust to his opponent's style.

In the upcoming fight, Ortiz will come out strong as expected. He is younger and naturally bigger than Floyd so he will use these advantages in the first few rounds of the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight. Just like what Hatton did to Floyd when they fight, Ortiz will try everything to knock Floyd out in the first to middle rounds. In the late rounds, Floyd will be "Floyd" because he will start throwing his precise punches and defending himself with his shoulder roll defense.

On September 17, Ortiz is predicted by many experts to fall in the late rounds or lose to a decision.
