We may not see a rematch between Victor Ortiz and Marcos Maidana in the immediate future. In June of 2009, almost two years ago, Maidana stopped Ortiz in the sixth round of their war. Ortiz (29-2-2, 22KOs) has gone 5-0-1 since loss, and the win streak includes the most impressive win of Ortiz's career - the twelve round unanimous decision over Andre Berto to capture the WBC welterweight title.
Ortiz, who says Maidana (30-2, 27KOs) refused to give him a rematch in the past, wants Maidana to earn his shot at the title.
"That was just a waste of your long breath that you just took [asking about Maidana rematch]. He's not even on my level. Now he's got to earn his ass whipping. I don't need to waste my time on him. 147 is a great division with great fighters, and I want to get in the ring with the best of the best. All of the greats, I want them," Ortiz told BoxingScene.com's Ernest Gabion.
