Last time we saw Victor Ortiz, he was stopped in the 4th round by Andre Berto in April of 2016. At the time, many thought that would be the end for Ortiz. However, Ortiz feels he has been down this road before, and can get back to the top. “I’ve been written off before. People have said I should retire since my first loss,” said Ortiz at his media workout in Ventura, CA on Tuesday.
“I came back from that loss and became a champion. I don’t care what people have to say about me. I could go act full-time (Expendables 3, Southpaw) if I wanted, but I truly love this sport.”
The former WBC welterweight champion returns against Mexico’s Saul Corral (24-9, 15 KOs) in the main event of PBC on FS1 and FOX Deportes on July 30 at the Rabobank Theater in Bakersfield, California.
The 30-year-old Ortiz (31-6-2, 24 KOs) feels he is still one of the best in the loaded welterweight division. “I still feel like I can be one of the best in the 147-pound division. It’s there for the taking,” said Ortiz ‘There are some gifted fighters in there and I respect them, but I believe that I have what it takes to be right up there. I’m a complete fighter.”
While I do not think Ortiz is a complete fighter; he is an entertaining fighter, and has name recognition. If he can put together a few wins, he might be able to get himself another title shot, but that can’t happen unless Ortiz takes care of business against Corral.
In a fight that could break pay-per-view records, Floyd Mayweather will battle Conor McGregor on August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. While the fight looks like a mismatch on paper, expect millions of fans to purchase the fight via Showtime pay-per-view.
On Friday, Showtime Boxing released the fight poster for Mayweather-McGregor.
Take a look:

Oscar De La Hoya has been a huge critic of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight. While you can criticize the fight, you can’t criticize how much money this fight is going to make. It probably will shatter all pay-per-view records.
De La Hoya, who lost to Mayweather in 2007, believes McGregor has no chance of beating Mayweather.
De La Hoya gave his thoughts about the fight to TMZ Sports.
Take a listen:
- Running from 6 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.
- Breakfast after the run, followed by rest.
- Eats a light meal or snack at 1 p.m. before heading over to his gym.
- Training in the gym from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday(exercises, hitting the mitts, jumping rope, etc.).
- Sparring sessions on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Floyd Mayweather does not believe that Conor McGregor was knocked out during sparring for their upcoming fight. Mayweather told Fighthype.com: “If I ain’t seen no footage, I don’t believe it.”
This is on the heels of welterweight contender Jessie Vargas saying that he heard McGregor was dropped during sparring.
Who do you believe?
Floyd Mayweather lives a pretty good life. He has many houses, jets, and cars. Fortunately, for Mayweather, his life is about to get even better! Mayweather is expected to make $200 plus million on August 26 when he battles Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.
Mayweather is a very famous guy; he is one of biggest stars in the world of sports.
Mayweather talked about his fame in Brooklyn last week.
What he says might surprise you:
Earlier this week, Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach told the world that he has not been paid for Pacquiao’s fight against Jeff Horn on July 1.
Roach told Sports Illustrated the following:
“I really don’t know if he’s mad at me. But I can tell you this: I haven’t been paid yet. So who knows?”
Pacquiao told the world that he has not received payment from Bob Arum for the Horn fight, and it was Arum’s responsibility to pay Roach.
However, Bob Arum told Ringtv on Thursday: “All of this is truly, truly a non-issue. Everybody has the money they are entitled to, end of the story!”
When asked by TMZ Sports if he received payment for the Horn fight, Roach said: “Everyone’s paid.”
I guess all is well with Pacquiao, Roach, and Arum.
When asked about Pacquiao’s future, Roach told TMZ Sports: “I would like to see him maybe fight a rematch with Horn. Otherwise, retire.”
Pacquiao, 38, should exercise his rematch clause and fight Horn again. He can still make decent money in a very winnable fight. We may have seen the best of Pacquiao, but he can still beat Jeff Horn!
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are about to make a lot of money. Mayweather made around $200 plus million against Manny Pacquiao, and probably will make even more against McGregor.
Mayweather believes his decision to fight McGregor will be talked about for a long time!
He discussed this in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday night.
