Victor Ortiz: I Got Caught. No Big Deal. It Happens.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - It's a super week in New York City and several of the five boroughs' finest boxing talent showed their super skills Thursday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  The action culminated with a surprising second round knockout of former WBC Welterweight World Champion "Vicious" Victor Ortiz (29-5-2, 22 KO's) as a result of a right hook thrown by WBA International Welterweight Champion and Brooklyn native Luis Collazo (35-5, 18 KO's).

"I had no doubt in my mind that I was going to win," said Collazo.  "I went through hard times and maybe I wasn't ready before, but I was ready today.

"When I was in the locker room, the joy, happiness and excitement hit me that I have the opportunity to perform in Brooklyn in front of my fans and the people I grew up with here," he continued.

"I knew Ortiz was going to come out and be aggressive and I had to stay focused and stick to the game plan.  People say that I can't punch, but I guess they're wrong."

Ortiz, who was away from the ring for 19 months, looked well conditioned and ready when the fight began.  However, Collazo stuck to his game plan and wasn't fazed by Ortiz's aggressive start to the bout.  With a right hook to the chin, Collazo sent Ortiz to the canvas and a flurry of punches that followed ended the fight in 2:59 of the second round.

"I'm good," said Ortiz.  "I got caught.  No big deal.  It happens. I put my heart out there."

[QUOTE=Hitman932;14190294]I thought Judah pulling the fake headbutt acting job against Clottey because he as about to get knocked out was worse than anything Ortiz did. At least Ortiz gets knocked down, or has a bone broken before he quits. Judah,…

[QUOTE=Shogunofharlem1;14190275]I think ortiz is worse. Judah folds when he has to dig deep. Ortiz folds when his opponent shows he isnt a pushover. Ortiz is much softer than judah which is weird saying.[/QUOTE] I thought Judah pulling the fake headbutt…
