A guy with a rock chin versus a guy with a glass chin. Gee I can't figure out who's going to win this one. 😂

[QUOTE=champion4ever;18488977]Victor has the skill to the pull this one off but he has to want to do it for himself. He just needs to get his self confidence back. He is easily the more talented of the two. I hope…

Alexander doesn't like a rough, physical fight. Ortiz has to make it as uncomfortable as possible, and he has a shot.
