What a difference a fight makes, especially in a career of a professional boxer and a newly crowned WBC welterweight champion, Vicious Victor Ortiz who dethrones previously undefeated Andre Berto last month in Connecticut.Many pundits and fans, all but written off Ortiz from the status of the elite after Victor fought to a draw with Lamont Peterson in Las Vegas at the end of last year. Moving up in weight and facing an unbeaten champion in Berto, Ortiz proved all of his critics wrong in a spectacular fashion.

 

Yesterday, Mayor presented twenty four year old boxer with a key to the City of Ventura. “It is an honor to have you as a resident of downtown Ventura,” said Mayor Fulton addressing Ortiz during a private ceremony at Watermark, a chick restaurant on Main Street in downtown, Ventura:” Ventura is a boxing capitol of Ventura County and Victor Ortiz is the king. I want to say Victor, here the key to the city of Ventura. We are so grateful that you made Ventura your home.”
