Video: Victor Ortiz on His Boxing Future Following KO Defeat

Video by Jeandra LeBeauf

Carson, CA - In front a packed house of 7,760 and a nationally televised PBC on FOX and FOX Deportes audience, Andre Berto, (31-4, 24 KOs) turned back the clock and successfully gained his revenge over "Vicious" Victor Ortiz, 31-6-2 (24 KOs) with a stunning fourth-round knockout in a rematch of their 2011 "Fight of the Year" on Saturday night at Southern California's legendary open-air boxing venue StubHub Center.

Ortiz found success early dropping Berto with a straight left, sending the Winter Haven, Florida-native to the canvas. Berto turned the tables in brutal fashion in the fourth, drilling Ortiz with a right uppercut which sent the southpaw from Ventura, Calif. sprawling to the mat.

Upon rising, Ortiz was met with a barrage of punches which sent him down again as referee Jack Reiss waived the fight off at the 1:14 mark of the round.
 
Said a thrilled Berto, "I wasn't hurt by the first knockdown. I was more mad at myself for getting caught. Once he went down it was over, I knew he was hurt and I went right after him. He couldn't take my power.

"I feel terrific, it's a great comeback victory. I would take on Danny Garcia sure, just tell me when and I'll be ready."
 
From a disappointed Ortiz, "I didn't really lose control. I dropped my hand and he caught me. He is a hard puncher just like myself.
 
"This was a history book type of fight. He went down. I went down. Righty vs. lefty. This is boxing.
 
"I knew as soon as the head butt happened that it was not good because the blood started pouring. That's not a big deal. It happens in boxing.
 
"I never disliked Berto. It is part of the game. He acted like he didn't like me, but I always tried to shake his hand. I don't hate anyone."
