Peterson: Ortiz Can Hurt Mayweather, But Needs a Jab

By Rick Reeno

Junior welterweight contender Lamont Peterson (29-1, 15KOs) is picking Floyd Mayweather Jr. to unseat WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on Spetember 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Back in December, Peterson survived two knockdowns in the third round to battle Ortiz (29-2, 22KOs) to a ten round majority draw. Back in 2009, Peterson and Mayweather (41-0, 25KOs) had their infamous sparring session in Las Vegas, which BoxingScene.com documented heavily .

Peterson is giving Ortiz's a puncher's chance - if the welterweight champ can catch Mayweather in the early rounds. But, he expects Ortiz's lack of a jab to be the biggest factor in Mayweather's ability to win, even with 16 months of inactivity.

"With Victor, anyone that hits with hands that are that heavy, they can hurt you. It would have to be Victor catching him early and really hurting him to put him on the defensive. He would have to get out there early. Overall, I would have to go with Mayweather because Victor doesn't really put a real jab out there. And to beat Mayweather, who counter-punches so much, is that you have to have a really good jab. And the fact that Victor don't jab, I think he loses," Peterson told BoxingScene.com.

mayweather is a good fighter but as a far as i am concern he has done more to hurt his career than good by not fighting the top guys in his division going back to his brief retirement when cotto , marg and paul were top dogs in the welters.. (if it's a easy win make the easy money u fool. dont th...

lol @ dude above me...pure hate straight from the soul :boxing: The welterweight division is too easy for Mayweather. He may have trouble with bigger punchers who punch in volume. But welter is easy for this dude cause he blocks a good 70% of incoming. So every fight with Mayweather r...

chicken floyd-ortiz is a replay of chicken floyd-ricky hatton fight...while ortiz has the punch, he doesn't have the speed and the ability to run, and hug and run...ortiz doesn't know how to use his elbow unlike chicken floyd... while i want ortiz to win, i don't see him winning against the c...
