WBC world welterweight champion Victor Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KO) will look to become the first ever man to defeat Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (41-0, 25 KO) on Saturday night. The two men meet at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view. Ortiz is looking to finish the redemption story that started with quitting in the ring against Marcos Maidana. Ortiz turned his career around with a huge decision win over Andre Berto earlier this year.
Ortiz, weighing in as a welterweight for only the second time, hit the 147 welterweight limit exactly. Ortiz looked lean and ready for the fight and seemed in good spirits, not drawn out in any way.
He'll get his chance to make history tomorrow evening.
