Victor Ortiz determined to carry on

Despite recent defeats, former welterweight titlist confident upon return


Originally Published: December 4, 2014By Dan Rafael | ESPN.com

Former welterweight titlist Victor Ortiz has been knocked out three times in a row. He suffered a badly broken jaw in one of those fights, an injury that was one of the main reasons for a 19-month layoff.

He has not won a fight since his April 2011 barn burner against Andre Berto, from whom Ortiz won a welterweight world title, only to lose it by memorable (and mildly controversial) knockout in his first defense against Floyd Mayweather Jr. later that year.

Ortiz, 27, could pursue more work in Hollywood -- he has been a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars" and had a starring role in the movie "The Expendables 3" -- but said he's determined to continue boxing, even in the wake of a surprising second-round knockout to former titlist Luis Collazo in January. It was a loss that many thought was the end, or at least should be the end, of Ortiz's boxing career....

I'm not a psychologist but the guy does have some serious personality issues. He can smile and be charming during interviews and outside of the boxing ring but to me it just seems really, really contrived and fake. When he's fighting...occasionally he has a tendency to panic and either give up or foul. To his credit he has also shown toughness with the Berto fight being the obvious example. The FaceLube commercial is still total, homoerotic gold though...

He can say and believe whatever he wants.


It all changes as soon as he takes a good solid punch.
