Collazo: Victor Ortiz Didn't Respect Me or My Power

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Former champion Luis Collazo (35-5, 18KOs) feels Victor Ortiz overlooked him this past Thursday night. Ortiz was coming off a long layoff and already had his mind focused on bigger things - like a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. But Collazo spoiled those plans, landing a huge right hand to knock Ortiz out in the second round of their fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"Once I seen him go down I knew he wasn't getting up. I didn't know how great his chin was. In the Maidana fight he got dropped a couple of times. His chin got checked and it wasn't too good. He didn't respect me as a fighter and he didn't respect my punching power as well, but I had nothing but confidence," Collazo told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=PittyPat;14193101]Why be a downer? Let the man enjoy his moment. Plus, he rocked both an undefeated Hatton and Berto big time and gave them hell, so it's not like he's feather-fisted or something.[/QUOTE] Exactly! He had Hatton and Berto hurt…
