By Chris Robinson

Victor Ortiz's life has changed dramatically since his April upset over then-WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto and his name is being thrust into the spotlight even more so with an upcoming showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Ortiz defends his crown against the brazen and brash Mayweather on September 17th in a fight that looks more and more likely to be heading to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather announced the Ortiz bout to his million-plus Twitter followers on June 7th but since we have heard nary a word from the Oxnard-based fighter on what the fight means to his career. I had been curious as to what had been on Ortiz's mind as was happy to see an in-depth interview on the 24-year old conducted by RingTV's Joseph Santoliquito.

In his own words, here are a few highlights from Ortiz's interview...†

Ready for anything with Floyd Mayweather Jr...
"The contracts have been signed. Everything is set to go. Weíre looking for a venue, and itís going to be on pay-per-view HBO. I donít know what Floydís issues are outside of the ring, all I know is that weíre fighting. But it hit me a long time ago that my life has changed. Bucky Avila and Ron Lyle, those two were there since way back, and they always told me that I would be in the lights one day. In doing so, I should always keep my feet on the ground. I always listen to what they have to say. I wake up each morning and work hard. Coach wants me at four in the morning and Iím there at 3:30. If Mayweather is running two miles, Iím running three miles. Iíve been through so many ups and downs these last three years, Iím ready for anything."†

Getting ready for Mayweather's antics...
"Whatís funny is that I donít scare easily and I donít let stuff like that bother me. I know what Floyd is up to and I know heís there to sell tickets. Iím there to take him off the throne. He can call me anything in the book, Iím ready for it. Iíll pretty much laugh it off; I know itís coming. Floyd will drum up something to say and Iíll laugh at him. I donít anger easily, either. Iíve been called every name in the book. Iím this, Iím that, I have no balls. Floyd canít bother me."

How to defeat Floyd Mayweather...
"Iíll take him the same way I thought Oscar De La Hoya beat him, the way Jose Luis Castillo beat him, thatís take the war to his ass. Every fighter Iíve faced is different. Iím not sure what Mayweather has planned for me, or what I have planned for Mayweather. Berto was one fight, we had a plan for him. Peterson was another fight, a different plan for him. I know how Floyd fights. Weíll come with some game plan and go from there. Iíll start training soon, maybe mid-June. Iím fat right now for welterweight, walking around at 156 pounds. I know Iíll get down. I wonít have problems making the weight."

He needs to swarm Floyd from the opening bell,if Floyd gets into any sort of rythem he will dictate the pace of the fight.

Ortiz WILL Shock The World KO-ing Floyd!

Victor will get there before Manny does, and beat the living hell out of Floyd on Mexican Independence Day! 8-1 odds favoring Mayweather.... Put $500 on Ortiz and go collect $4,000 then celebrate!
