Even though Vicious Victor Ortiz will be the defending WBC welterweight champion when he faces Floyd Money Mayweather On September 17th inLas Vegas, few experts give him a chance to retain his belt.Las Vegas book makers have installed Mayweather as an eight to one favorite to beat Ortiz, a mere formality on a way to a much anticipated mega showdown with Manny Pacquaio next year. One expert that believes young Ortiz has a chance is a five time trainer of the year ward recipient, Freddie Roach.
“I love Victor Ortiz,” exclaimed Manny Pacquiao’s legendary coach, Freddie Roach when I interviewed him last month at Chumash Casino inSouthern California:” I wish him well. He can give me a blue print on how to beat Mayweather. May be we will be fighting Ortiz next and not Mayweather, if he pulls the victory off. I think he has a shot.”
