Former champion Victor Ortiz (29-4-2, 22KOs) is ready to return on January 30th, going up against Luis Collazo (34-5, 17KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. A win against Collazo could set up a lot of opportunities for the future at welterweight and junior middleweight.
Ortiz is returning from back to back defeats, to Josesito Lopez and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Ortiz would like to avenge his loss to Mayweather, but feels he would destroy Lopez and Marcos Maidana if rematch opportunities were presented to him.
"I would like to go back and destroy them just for the sake of it. They're not on my level and never have been....not Lopez, not Maidana. None of those guys man. Mayweather is the only one where I could probably say 'we are going to be in for a war' Those other guys, they don't belong. They got me on a bad night, but 9 out of 10 times I [beat them]," Ortiz said.
