Brandon Rios: Victor Ortiz is a Motherf**king Crybaby!

By Michael Marley

Bam Bam don't surf.

But undefeated lightweight Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios claims that Vicious Victor Ortiz, his former amateur boxing teammate (in both Garden City, Kansas and then in Oxnard, California) does.

According to Rios, real fighters don't hang 10 on ocean waves.

According to Rios, Ortiz, whose wrenching life story includes being abandoned by first his mother at age seven  and then by his alcoholic father at 13, is "a storyteller" who has embellished the truth.

This feud seems a bit one-sided now, with the vitriol emnating from the mouth of Rios, but there is a real bad blood between the 135 pounder and the 140 pounder.

"He's a motherbleeping crybaby," Rios said two weeks ago on Internet boxing radio program "Leave It In The Ring."

Rios is promoted by Top Rank and Bob Arum while Ortiz is promoted by Oscar de la Hoya and Golden Boy.

You think that Arum and the Goldens spit continual venom at each other?

Rios really gets personal and mean with his onetime friend.

Rios is age 24 and boxes conventionally while Ortiz, who is 23, is a southpaw. Ortiz is 28-2-1 with 22 knockouts while Rios is 25-0-1 with 18 KOs.

Rios is trained by former world champ Robert Garcia who used to also train Ortiz.

In fact, it was Robert who brought both Ortiz and then Rios to live with him, moved them from Kansas to Oxnard.

Then there was a blowup in the Garcia clan, the mainstays of the La Colonia Boxing Club in Oxnard.

Father Eduardo Garcia, who developed son Robert and Ferocious Fernando Vargas from rank amateurs into pro world champs, was in the crossfire as Ortiz left Robert to be trained, as he is today, by older brother Danny.

There have been signs of reconciliation between Robert and his father and Danny but the Rios-Ortiz feud blazes on and is somewhat reminiscent of Vargas' lengthy feud with de la Hoya.

"I don't run from nobody," Rios said, referring to his aggressive, facefirst style. "To me, he is a nobody.

"To me, he is a crybaby, a storyteller. He's a motherf**king crybaby, a p*ssy. That's what I think about him, what I will always think about him. He is in his own fantasy world.

"He's in his little fantasy world. Only f*ggots surf. He's a wannabe punk rocker, a white (man) wanna be."

Both Rios and Ortiz are Mexican American as are the Garcias.

"I'm just real," Rios said. "Victor Ortiz runs around (the ring) like he's on a bike. This is like a man's competition.

"I'm like Arturo Gatti, like (Erik) Morales, (Marco Antonio) Barrera and (Juan Manuel) Marquez. His little life story is full of baloney, he is a phony baloney."

Rios has persitently said he'd be glad to fight Ortiz at a catchweight of 138 pounds.

But this feud needs more time to marinate.

With any luck, both will keep winning and then they can settle it in the ring like ODLH and Vargas did for big money. Maybe then a world title or two will be at stake.

Just remember, like those Charlie Manson teeshirts proclaim, Bam Bam don't surf.
