Underdog Victor is positive of win versus Floyd

Even though "Vicious" Victor Ortiz is the current World Boxing Council Welterweight title-holders, he is still the huge underdog coming into this fight against Floyd "Pretty Boy" Mayweather.

Ortiz is confident of pulling one of the greatest upsets in the history of boxing on September 17 in Las Vegas. He is looking for a knockdown because he knows if the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight goes the distance, Mayweather may get the better of him. He acknowledges his opponent's achievements in the sport and knows that he will be up against one the most intelligent fighters of all time.

Floyd Mayweather Jr used to be the pound-for-pound king of boxing. He vacated the throne because it was already over a year since he last fought and won inside the squared circle. He is undefeated at 41 wins (25 knockouts) and he believes the skills of Victor won't be enough to overpower him. He sees his opponent as boxing's newest star but he is also confident that his light will shine brighter on fight night and bring home the WBC welterweight title.

Underdog Victor Ortiz is coming off a win against previously undefeated Andre Berto. In the first round of their fight, he scored a knockdown. In the second round, Berto even the score by scoring a knockdown against Ortiz. In the sixth round, both fighters went down but Ortiz's knockdown punch was more brutal than Berto's. In the tenth round, Victor was deducted a point because of hitting at the back of Berto's head. When the scorecards were announced, Victor was so happy when he heard the words "A new WBC welterweight champion of the world..."

Victor's recent notable wins were only against Vivian Harris and Andre Berto. In the Harris fight, he was also the huge underdog but he proved his critics wrong by ending the fight by stoppage. In his fight against hard-hitting tactician Lamont Peterson, he scored a couple of knockdowns in round 3 but Peterson fought back to close the fight in a draw. The last loss of Victor Ortiz was against Marcos Rene Maidana in 2009 via a sixth round technical knockout.

On September 17 in the Ortiz vs Mayweather fight, Victor will still be the underdog and he will defend the same belt he got from Andre Berto last April. He is confident that he will be victorious against the undefeated American. He wants to bring the belt back home plus the hefty paycheck of $2.5 million. Even though it's not as huge as Mayweather's money on fight day, it is still the biggest amount Ortiz will bring home after the fight. Win or lose, both Floyd and Victor will surely enjoy the cash they bring home after the fight.
