Victor Ortiz Ripping Maidana To Shreds, Aydin Possible

By Chris LaBate

The new WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz has ripped into Marcos Maidana when asked about a possible rematch of their June 2009 rumble. Ortiz and Maidana traded knockdowns before Ortiz was stopped in the sixth round. The WBC mandatory challenger is Selcuk Aydin, who Ortiz says he is willing to face if Golden Boy Promotions presents that fight. Ortiz would prefer to get the huge mega-fights with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

"That's the funniest thing that I've ever heard [about a Maidana rematch]. I obviously had a fluke off-night. Maidana isn't even near the caliber of fighter of myself, or Andre Berto, so for anyone to even ask me questions amongst Andre Berto - especially a comparison - is a slap in the face to both Berto and myself. As far as I'm considered, I'm ready for the division's best pound-for-pound greatest fighters," Ortiz said to OnTheGrind Boxing Radio.

"I can't really say that I was ever a fan of [Erik] Morales, but I hear that he put the beating on Maidana and I believe it. Maidana, he just got lucky. I was his ticket to become something. [Without me], right now he would be in Argentina doing nothing, not even recognized. But the simple fact that I had an off-night, gave him a great night and a great life. Let's not forget something, he and the whole world knows that he's not championship material - never, not today, not tomorrow, not ever."

Physically the "new" Ortiz "should" win. He is bigger, stronger and his punches are harder and maybe even faster now. That's his offense. We saw that he can forget about his defense, in both the Maidana fight and even in…

Lead Uppercut - no matter what you say, the facts are that Ortiz was ahead on the cards and still quit. He knew himself that he could not take anymore punishment. Ortiz needs to fight Maidana to get that loss…

[QUOTE=Spray_resistant;10432707]Vic would beat the crude and lets be honest overrated Maidana in a rematch but he should fight him and reading things about him not wanting to fight him is disheartening.[/QUOTE] I agree, Maidana should be his next opponent, [B]IF[/B]…
