ortiz vs berto

What a fight. I thought Andre Berto would beat Victor Ortiz by a decision but was I wrong. Victor Ortiz takes the hard fought battle with a unanimous decision victory. Ortiz is now the WBC Welterweight title holder. From round 1, Ortiz came out blazing and looked to overwhelm Berto. I have never seen Andre Berto look so troubled.

From about round 1 to 5, it was pretty much Ortiz’s fight. However, Andre Berto did score a few knockdowns himself, round 2 and round 6. Victor Ortiz had three, round 1 (twice) and round 6. This fight I’m sure is a candidate for fight of the year. Despite it be relatively early in the year.

With this upset victory, Victor Ortiz definitely caught the boxing worlds attention. Berto will most likely want a rematch. He mentioned that he injured his right thumb in the second round. I can’t wait to see both guys next fight. Congratulations to Victor Ortiz!
