I think that Maidana ruined him mentally and if Ortiz hadn't quit he would have been worse than what we saw lastnight...I see three things Ortiz needs to change which is 1.) the move to 147, 2.) new trainer, and 3.) he needs to get his head right about recieving punishment...someone needs to talk to him or motivate this kid...someone like Marquez should just talk **** to Ortiz and really let him know that a punch won't kill him...he needs to be smart
I don't think it's fair to Peterson to meet him at 142,Ortiz was a Jr MW when they last fought...Ortiz needs to move up to 147lb,the problem here is this might do more harm then good since guys who are WW are pretty big guys..Ortiz may need a new trainer,I hope he does get one he needs someone who can make him like a piece of iron..another thing I notice in his fight with Lamont was in exchanges he would lose umm..He is a big puncher and a good puncher but he does not know how to hit and not get hit,which means he needs someone who could make him an Margarito like animal..He needs to be able to take punishment or he is gonna lose alot more fights esp at WW..I like the kid I really do,but it's not looking good for him tbh..He had a 10-7 rd vs Peterson and fought him to a draw which in all realness means he lost the fight in rds..I had the fight a draw which means to me he really lost the fight..And tbh it's only gonna get harder for him at WW..
