In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

This Saturday, September 17, in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr 가오몬 타블렛 드라이버. makes his yearly appearance by taking on hard hitting Victor Ortiz in match televised on HBO Pay-Per-View.

Ortiz surprised the boxing world with an upset of then undefeated Andre Berto, in his last fight, earning him this match 다운로드.

I always wonder why a guy who can earn so much money doesn’t fight more, but the record does show he has some external legal problems. It has also been noted by former promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank, that Mayweather seems to have some mental problems as well 일러스트 패턴 다운로드. This remark has been dismissed by Golden Boy Promotions.

Ortiz, 24 is ten years the junior of Mayweather, but although one can question his defense (or lack of) you can question his punching power or his heart 일러스트 10 다운로드.

The fight itself is a good one for Mayweather to take, as Ortiz, 29-2 with 22 knockouts, like Manny Pacquiao (rumored to be his next opponent), is a hard-hitting southpaw 질투나요 baby 다운로드.

Of course, a loss here is going to hurt the drawing power of Mayweather, 41-0, (29) when and if such a match is made.

Ortiz is a bit taller, but it’s Mayweather with the longer reach, and Ortiz has shown an inability to avoid being hit.

The major risk that I feel can hurt Mayweather is a clash of heads, not unheard of when a southpaw fights a conventional fighter. Veteran referee Joe Cortez handles the bout, which does add to the safety of both fighters.

Sounds like a great fight on paper, and may well be worth the Pay-Per-View price.

Pick? Mayweather on a stoppage midway.***
