Victor Ortiz Not Happy With Draw: I Did Enough To Win!

Former world champions Victor Ortiz (32-6-3, 25 KOs) and Devon Alexander (27-4-1, 14 KOs) fought to majority draw in the exciting main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes Saturday night from Don Haskins Center on the UTEP campus in El Paso, Texas.
Ortiz believed that he had done enough over the 12 rounds to earn the decision.
"I thought the decision was a little off and I thought I did enough to win," said Ortiz. "The first few rounds were a little complicated. He's a great boxer and he was timing me just right. I wasn't leaving the line of fire."

The fight turned out to be a back-and-forth affair, with Alexander dominating much of the early action. Alexander frequently caught Ortiz charging in with right hands and combinations. The attacks opened up swelling in Victor's left eye beginning in round three.
"The eye was tough to overcome," said Ortiz. "I can't really see out of it. I really had to listen to my corner. I tried to stay composed as I could, but he's a really good fighter."
Alexander won five of the first six rounds on two judges' scorecards and all six on the other's. Ortiz began to have more success in the second half as Alexander's output slowed slightly and Ortiz remained persistent charging forward. This effort allowed him to win five of the final six rounds on two judges' cards and all six of the final frames on the third judge's card.
After 12 rounds, the judges scored the bout 115-113 for Ortiz and 114-114 twice, resulting in the majority draw. After the bout, both former champions expressed interest in a possible rematch.

"A rematch would be awesome," said Ortiz. "If both teams agree and the fans want it, let's make it happen."

I didn't score it, but I did think Alexander won the fight. I was disappointed in both though. In a crossroads fight like this (especially when Spence, Thurman, Garcia, and Porter are looking for fights) both had a chance to…
