Victor Ortiz despite his power and natural talents is mentally vulnerable. Andre Berto is a question mark, since he has faced so few skilled opponents. This is the type of fight that fans crave, that puts the boxing spectator, whether he is eating hot dogs or drinking a beer, on the edge of his chair. If this fight is made it should not be an undercard, it should be the main event.
Rumors abound that the Ortiz team is seeking a catch weight for the fight, if this is true, then it means that other trainers have caught on to the dirty trick used by Pacquiao to gain advantage over bigger fighters. Having a fighter weighing below his weight threshold at which he fights at his best is a big advantage for the other fighter. You see, the casual fan doesn’t know that just one pound can make a big difference in the way you perform. It is like taking one step across the border from Mexico into the US. One step and you’re in a different nation. A fighter can lose several pounds easily, but that last pound may be hell to lose, and it will take a lot out of a fighter. Just ask Miguel Cotto who struggled to lose the last pound needed to make the weight for his fight against Pacquiao. After two rounds Miguel Cotto was gelatin, his body gave out on him, and he was smashed like mash potatoes.
