Hollywood, California - Sitting in the hot-box that is his dressing room at the Wild Card, with about 15 reporters jammed into it, WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao was asked if he would like to tangle with Victor Ortiz, the new WBC champ.

"I don't know," he said. "He's a nice guy, also. And I like his attitude, he's humble person. I like a fighter like that."

Pacquiao was asked if he remembers the sparring session against Ortiz, which took place when Pacquiao was preparing to challenge lightweight champion David Diaz in June 2008 in Las Vegas; Pacquiao won via 9th-round technical knockout.

"Yeah," he said, laughing slightly and raising his eyebrows as if to suggest it was a rough one. "I was 135 fighting with David Diaz. It was good, he's strong. That's why I picked him to win the fight (against Andre Berto). I talked to Ortiz before the fight and gave him some advice that he can use for the fight."

One reporter wanted to know if Pacquiao was at all astonished that Ortiz went after Berto so early, decking him in the first round.

"I'm not surprised because, you know, I sparred with Ortiz and I know he's strong and has power."

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut]I have questions over Manny, and Vic would ask those questions. Get this..... Victor Ortiz has a better resume at 147 than Manny. FACT: the only welter that Manny has EVER fought at 147 is, Josh Clottey. Berto > Clottey. I want Manny to step up. He should st...

I am STILL waiting for the name of a fighter who is more qualified to fight Manny than Vic. Marquez is a faded champion who is currently campaigning at lightweight. Ortiz is the third best welter on the planet. That is a no-brainer.

[QUOTE=romebyko]Berto would have never looked towards Karass for fear of him getting all up in his azz..Let's hope Ortiz has bigger balls then that,because I'm gonna be honest with ya the way Ortiz fights is right up Karass ally..If there is anything there left in the cracks from the Maidana figh...
