After watching Victor Ortiz suffer his third consecutive knockout loss, promoter Oscar De La Hoya has advised the boxer to walk away from the ring. On Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Ortiz was knocked out in two rounds by Luis Collazo. It was Ortiz's first fight since a June 2012 stoppage loss to Josesito Lopez.

"I really feel [Victor Ortiz] should call it a day and enjoy his young life," De La Hoya stated on the social networks.

De La Hoya's company, Golden Boy Promotions, had at one time pushed Ortiz as the second coming of De La Hoya in the Los Angeles area. He was catching on and received a huge push by HBO. But then he suffered a big hit when he quit in the sixth round of a 2009 six round war with Marcos Maidana.

Ortiz fought his way back to a top spot with a decision win over Andre Berto in April 2011 to win the WBC welterweight title. But then later that year he was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather Jr. in four rounds. When Collazo caught him with a big right hand in the second round, Ortiz crumbled to his knees and never even attempted to get up.

Ortiz turned 27-years-old on Friday.

[QUOTE=el***]Thats the thing though, collazo was supposed to be an easy fight. Also collazo doesnt have much power so thats also why he was hand picked. That ortiz got KOed so early by him shows how bad he is these days[/QUOTE] Collozo hasnt been an easy W for anyone including Rick Hatton among ...

Yeah he's not very smart in terms of boxing IQ. He seemed to have only one method of attacking Collazo. Even in the first round I saw that it would be a tough fight for him. I thought maybe he wouldve change up his pace but he kept charging. Also seems to fold when people fight back. He hurt ...
