Former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz had to have a second surgery on his fractured jaw about a week and half ago, Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told BoxingScene.com.

According to Gomez, a second surgery had to be performed on Ortiz because the jaw was not healing properly after the first surgery. Ortiz had surgery the day after his technical knockout loss to Josesito Lopez at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Ortiz suffered two fractures on the right side of his jaw during his fight against Lopez on June 23rd. During the surgery, Ortiz had a small titanium plate inserted in his jaw, along with having his mouth wired shut.

Even after Ortiz was able to open his mouth again a few weeks later, the bones were not aligning correctly.

“There was a gap where the fracture occurred in his jaw,” said Gomez, who is also Golden Boy Promotions’ Vice President. “The jaw wasn’t fusing correctly so he had to have surgery again.”

Asked about Ortiz’s timetable when he could return to the gym, Gomez replied, “He will be out for a while.”

The setback could push back a possible Lopez rematch or a fight against another fighter deep into 2013. The loss to Lopez eliminated a planned September 15th showdown for Ortiz against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

Ortiz made headlines outside of the ring after the Lopez fight when he split with trainer Danny Garcia and apparently with manager Rolando Arellano.

Prior to being trained and managed by Garcia and Arellano respectively, Ortiz was trained by Robert Garcia and managed by Cameron Dunkin.

When they showed him on TV at the Canelo vs Lopez fight his jaw was all swollen like he just broke it. You could tell it didn't heal right. He's a kid who had everything except a good solid team around him. Imagine if someone would have told him to Box Maidana before that fight. His career would ...
