Victor Ortiz: Maidana Will Have To Earn His Ass Whipping!
By Mark Vester
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.
Ortiz may have owned Berto, but Berto didn't quit. Ortiz had better do something about the Maidana blunder. He could always ask Maidana to move up if 140 is too risky a class against Maidana.Comment by munoz87 on 04-26-2011

Win loose or draw, when I fight, my opponents always know they are in a fight as etched on their faces. This punk is getting tiresome already, on the next fight, I'm gonna shut both his eyes.Comment by Dustaine on 04-25-2011
Berto was always overrated, he had a very hard time with him. Márquez and Mosley make him quit in a sea of tears.Post a Comment - View More User Comments (76)
