Josesito Lopez Fires Bullets: Victor Ortiz Has No Heart!

By Osman Rodriguez

Unheralded Josesito Lopez stopped welterweight star Victor Ortiz on Saturday night, apparently breaking Ortiz's jaw in the ninth round to earn a stunning upset victory at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Ortiz and his corner stopped the fight before the 10th-round bell when the injury left Ortiz unable to close his mouth. Lopez (30-4, 18 KOs) leaped onto the ropes to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in recent boxing history. Lopez accepted the fight last month as a late replacement for Andre Berto, who failed a doping test that scuttled his rematch with Ortiz.

"I'm a man and I'm not intimidated by anything. Victor tried to intimidate me but it didn't work. Victor has no heart," Lopez said.

"I knew that I had to fight the fight of my life to win and I knew that I caught him with good punches in every round and with more than a few of them - I hurt him. I knew the longer the fight went, the better chance I had. I chopped him down. I told you that I would shock the world."

Ortiz (29-4-2) was narrowly leading on all three judges' scorecards when he quit. Lopez had made the fight much closer than expected.

Lopez is right, Victor is not made for championship boxing, the guy fouls and then gets beat up, then quits. Sonny Liston finished a fight with a broken jaw even though he lost, Ali fought Norton with a broken jaw,…

[QUOTE=jreckoning;12275930]It isn't. People do far crazier things risking life and limb for a lot of money. They wouldn't bother for 200 dollars. Look at all those crab fishermen and shark wranglers and crazy ass jobs people do because they pay…
