The demands made of elite professional boxers are unreasonable, but to a certain extent it is part and parcel of the sport. Guys are expected to take punishment and are glorified for it if they do.
As a regular 25 year old kid you can't slate Ortiz for reacting the way he did to a broken jaw, he could take damage in those last three rounds that would cause suffering for the rest of his life. As a fighter, it does speak to his heart which ultimately is one of a fighter's defining qualities.
